A good MBA is now one of the best tool to increase your effectiveness in a work environment. This is not a news.
What you should know about MBA is that it also improves your personal effectiveness, and this applies to your lifestyle and probably to face complex situation like finding a job in a foreign country being a "sans papier".

If you are able to use the skills you have been taught in a good MBA you will succed in finding a job anywhere, because you have not surrendered and you have maintained you focus and vision

Good luck

well after seeing so much of discussion going on i felt this probably was the right place for my queries. speaking as a matter of fact i actually do not even stand up to you guys as Im still a student of computer science and engineering in India. but since its been my dream and passion to obtain my MBA here goes a few of my doubts
1.since i come from a country like India where income is not exactly a handsome one, I obviously find the MBA cost in USA and UK much more costlier compared to Spain. but are these MBAs internationally recognized as i don't plan to be employed in Europe for a long time and would like to return to my country?
2.due to some personal reasons i would like to apply for an MBA immediately as i finish my graduation (without any work experience). Do i stand a chance to get selected?
3.If not for Spain, where else in Europe is good option for MBA(the school) given fact that my living has to be affordable and since MBA is once in life investment, the school i take up should have a globally recognized program and a ranked school.
well, i hope my queries are not too childish for this forum :). hope a few of you can chip in for some help.thank u in advance

Difficult that a seriuos business school admits students without minimum 3 years of work experience. There is a reason, in a case methodology based MBA what is the discussion about if none has ever worked?

Anyway now many european business schools are going to India, the same EADA has organised a week in the IIM of Bangalore just to explain to the students the importanc of that part of the owrld and also to get known by the local companies

Take your time before starting the MBA if you really want to learn.

Hi,

I was reading on the Eada web that in 2009 they plan a week for free in Berkeley for all the EADA Alumni and in 2008 in IIMB in Bangalore, someone has been there? What is it about?

ok, bbs? bmi? why on earth would you go to either one of these universities? and more so even consider them?

Besides lacking in local, national, and international reputation, being new, and uncredited, I'd be willing to wager that the only job you'll get post graduation is working for BC'Neta washing up the streets. Seriously people, an education is an investment, 55k? is not that much money for ESADE nor is 68k? for IESE considering your ROI. I'm not sure what IE costs, but those three are about the only programmes worth attending in Spain.

I know people from EADA, and quite frankly the quality of the students there, while all being very nice people, intellectually, sub par. I'm not trying to insult, it's just my own personal experience.

Notwithstanding, in today's global economy you'll be competing with people from INSEAD, IMD, HBS, Tuck, etc... for that global rotational position at B'clays, McK or BCG, and quite frankly I'd be surprised if you even get called up for an interview after even an EADA, and more so those other two. Furthermore, I would even go so far as to say that if you don't go to a top tier programme, you may as well climb the corporate ladder, or get a masters in something as an MBA from even a tier 2 programme won't add much if any umph to your career progression, not to mention the op. cost of a year/2 out of the labour market.

Hope that helps. Have fun!

Bcrfan,

You probably know two people from EADA and you generalise to the all group.

I also know idiots from EADA, but also from IESE, ESADE, BBS or EAE.

I know people from IESE that have a small estate agency or that are unemployed, I know people from ESADE working in middle companies with a middle management job. If you want to express a global point of view you must be informed on what you are saying and not just be judgemental. If you do not like EADA it is fine, but the school in spain are 4 not 3 any more, since EADA also being in the top 100 in the world when there are 1000 MBAs or more competing is a very, very good result.

Then former class mates of mine working in top consulting companies, in government or in multinational around the world. I am proud of my EADA MBA as much I am proud my friend from IESE having reached great positions

Hi Paidos,

I am curious about your experience in EADA, it is always valuable to have first hand info.

Obviously you are satisfied with your studies and appreciated what the school offers. Can you give some details?
For instance how was the composition of classes - IE we know that it has a completely international appeal, but for EADA I was never sure if the MBA is really international, or more suitable for students planning their career in Spanish speaking parts of the world.

The other question concerns job prospects. You give some examples, but could you specify for what kind of jobs an EADA would be specially helpful? What is the strength of the school in content? And finally, what can you say about the career center of the school, networking etc?

I am very much looking forward to your answers, thanks in advance!

Hello,

In my class at EADA there were people from 23 different countries, 99% were not spanish. Distribution: Latin America and Europe the main groups, then north america, north africa, some asians and australia.

The career service is quite bad I must say , but we all got a job within maximum 3 months and I must say that each of us got THE JOB after two years or more. I have seen in the latest business week "20 years after survey", this is very common in the business schools

Regards

Hi Paidos,

Overall that sounds very positive. I presume you would therefore recommend EADA to prospective MBA applicants. Just a couple of questions:

1) Do you think having an MBA from EADA gave graduates an advantage in the Spanish and Latin American job market which a degree from another school might not? Might that be a reason why some people choose to study at EADA?

2) I'm interested in the difference between the jobs people got within 3 months and those they found after two years. How would you describe each, and how does one make the transition? Is it just a question of time and experience in your opinion, or is there something else the most successful graduates are doing in their first year or two work?

3) Is there a strong alumni organisation at EADA which takes an active interest in placing EADA graduates, or is the situation more informal than that?

4) Lastly, what is it about the career service you thought was not very good? Do you think the problem(s) was (were) specific to EADA, or do they reflect something more general in MBA schools' approaches to career services?

Many thanks!

Hi Lukeh,

1. A degree from EADA in Latin America will open doors better then some degree of France, UK or unknown US, especially since in your class you will have well positioned people from latin america. Of course the top ranked spanish schools like IESE, ESADE and IE will give you even more visibiility in Latin America, but they are more expensive.

2. It is a matter of luck, attitude, growth and statystics, this happens not only in EADA but in many other, even top-notch schools

3. There is a big alumni network, but is still struggling in getting people together, I have been invited to linkedin.com where EADA has a group which I found quite useful, you can build your network in the school which will help you in finding a job

4. Career Service still need a more international projection and more resources. I know that all the MBAs we are complaining about career service of our school, but I think that EADA is excellent in organizational behaviuor, in the learning by doing, but placement is still much improvable

If you are looking for a good BS in Spain, apply IESE, ESADE or IE. Don't waste your time in eada. Although it seems good, it doesn't gives you an international development. So, it's a regular option if you cannot afford others.

Although i agree the schools glock mentioned are good respectable ones, i disagree with his statement about international development, especially after hearing from Paidos, that his class was very international indeed. MBA is also about building new contacts, and in the case of EADA, it seem like a great place of making international contacts!

EADA IT IS INTERNATIONAL! You can tell whatever about this school except that is not international.

Then it is true that career service could be improved, but still 90 something percent (look at the Financial Times ranking) finds a job within 3 months from graduation.

EADA facilities are not luxorious? I agree
There is not a great garden? I agree

But EADA quality is high and the price/quality ratio, one of the best in the world.

Sincerely

Clay

Good morning,

I agree with the previous posts, but just have a look at the last Financial Times Ranking, EADA, apart of being 91 in the wolrd is 2nd in the for career progress, so probably the MBA of EADA does help to improve your career.

this is pretty amazing - how can a school be rated 91 on the overall list but still get to 2nd place in carrier progress? how does it go together with Alumni recommend rank 97? interesting....
