degree from PSB accepted in US?

How is an MBA from the Paris School of Business accepted back in the United States? Are former students getting interviews?

Is it important to take French classes as well to add this to your resume?

Thank you.

PSB isn't well known or widely accepted even in Paris. In the USA it will just be a no-name college with no brand equity or alumni network Aim for AACSB-accredited schools, ideally with US regional accreditation too. US employers won't care if you speak French. A fourth-rate US MBA will be better than any French grande ecole or university.

Lots of schools say they are preparing for that, and have been for a decade. i am skeptical about assuming any school will gaining that accreditation on the months before you would start. And you would need to start after the accreditation to have an accredited degree. Even then, will it meet your goals?

You can consider learning Spanish instead of French
It is very useful and valued in the US
At least more than French!

Thank you. I agree that Spanish (and Chinese and Russian) would be the most useful languages to learn for an American. Though we still need a few Americans speaking French to do business with West Africa and with France. That's what I'm looking to do. Yes they'll speak English for their international communication but one can lose an advantage not speaking the language of the locals.

Interesting. The school itself says it is in the accreditation process: https://www.psbedu.paris/en/about/accreditation-aacsb

Actually, the news arrived today. The school's accreditation can also be checked on the Accredited Schools list of AACSB.

Hi Duncan and III,

I have received an admission offer from the Paris school of business for its International MBA program with data analytics specialization. However, I had some concerns since the school isn't been published into QS or FT rankings and it does not publish its placement records so I assume that they do not offer any placements/internships. But the school does have international accreditations such as AACSB and AMBA that typical good schools have.  Also due to this COVID situation around the school is offering its courses in an online format and is not sure when will the on-campus mode of delivery be available.  
I just had one question is this the right school to join at this time??

P.S: I have 5 years of work experience in data analytics and have not taken GMAT yet and was looking for schools without GMAT requirements. I am from India and have the IELTS score of 7.

I cannot imagine any candidate for whom this is the best choice. What are your goals?

I am looking for MBA program with data analytics specialization since I am already from the data analytics field. My goal is to work in European market to gain international experience and assume the position as an Analytics Manager post MBA in any reputed organisation in France.

May I know the reasons for your concern as it seems that the school has exactly the program structure I want and it also has the accreditation of AACSB and AMBA?

I don't think it will get you to your goals. That's my concern, not the structure. Europe has national labour markets dominated by local languages. If you want to work in France, see what skills and degrees are held by the people in the roles you want. They will, generally, not have AASCB accredited MBAs from marginal schools, but other master's degrees from grandes ecoles.

Hi Duncan, 
Thanks.
What do you think about the IuBH university of applied sciences since it also has good program structure but yes doesn't have Aacsb or Amba accreditations? I guess none of them have except Hochschule Pforzheim. Do you think I should join those schools?

This comes down to your goals. Hundreds of schools are accredited by AACSB, AMBA or EQUIS. You can use the 'Browse Business Schools' option, and you will see there is a filter for accredited schools. There are such 31 schools in France and 14 in Germany.

If you want to work in an analytics role in France, learn French and then take a masters taught in French in analystics.
