Enrolled students: Influencing factors for making the decision to enroll

Decision making is by far one of the most excruciating tasks when it comes to opportunities or career at stake; decision making in general also tends to be dreadful for overthinkers or muddled people like me.
We tend to make choices in everyday life and bear either the fruit or consequences of our own choices. I am reminded of the dialogue in the movie “The Matrix” said by Keanu Reeves – “The problem is of choice.”

For students, of course, it is an important component of the college journey and can have explicit impact on a student’s future educational accomplishment and professional opportunities. Career planning courses allow students to explore various specializations and career of interests along with their decisionmaking skills. These kinds of courses can either be general or focused to a specific discipline.

We took a survey from different strata of our students’ community – prospective students, enrolled students, existing ones, and our alumni. We asked them to rank in order of preference the factors affecting their decision to choose C3S Business School as their alma mater.


Of course, it’s a no brainer, cost is most rated factor for students, they seek and consider study abroad options which has an economical edge and do not burn their sponsors’ pockets paying for their education abroad. C3S Business School, Barcelona fits apt as one gets a UK degree at the cost of living in Spain. Another added advantage is getting dual degrees – the UK & Spain, so even if one wants to pursue their
career in Spain, the national degree gives their profile a gigantic boost.

Flexible Payment plans and High-quality teaching are subsequent facts which are top rated. At C3S Business School, the focus on immersive learning with nuances of real-life problems discussed is the pedagogy and ideology adopted, thus faculty team comprises Industry experts & CXOs of different industries to share their experiences with students and make them comprehend the theoretical concepts in a practical way.

Another significant factor being the Pathway programs – opportunity to study in the UK; it was a win-win situation for students as they get the exposure of studying in one of the renowned universities of the UK, alongside experiencing living in the country of the Queen for a span of 6 months to a year or more depending upon the program they opt for.

We tend to take something seriously if our best friend advises so or our family recommends it, the obvious reason is because we trust their judgement and rely on their opinions. Also, students were at ease when their counselling pre-enrollment and post enrollment covered all their concerns and solved all their doubts and issues. The 24*7 student support was acclaimed by all the enrolled students of the past and the present.

Amongst these, other factors were the fact that campus is located in the heart of Barcelona, proximity to major tourist spots, restaurants, accommodation hubs, etc. Also, since an international student will encounter culture shock and can also feel homesick, away from family and friends, a little warmth and family like atmosphere can go long way, which was also one of the reasons students opted for C3S Business School.
