Edhec, ESCP or another MBA


Maria Clar...

Hi everyone,

I really need some advice. I received an offer from Edhec Business School for their Global MBA this September on a 30% scholarship. I'm also thinking about applying to ESCP MBA but I'm not sure if it will really give me an edge over Edhec or if should accept Edhec's offer. I will be 100% in debt so that's why I'm not considering more expensive schools at the moment. My goal is to stay in Europe after the MBA (I don't have a European nationality) working in social consulting or a social enterprise or a startup.

I'm open to any country in Europe. I speak French, Spanish and English.

My questions are 1. Will ESCP, being more prestigious, give me a really advantage in looking for a job?
2. Is it worth looking into more expensive schools like HEC or Oxford? Will salaries be good enough so I can pay back in a similar amount of time than the cheaper schools?

Any opinion is highly appreciated as I have to let Edhec know by the end of next month.

I'm an EDHEC alumnus. Top schools are be worth applying to, even if you are focused on a short payback time rather than a higher return in the medium term. The FT ranking has a column called Value which is a good proxy. Cambridge, HEC, Insead, and SDA Bocconi are higher in value than EDHEC, for example. Oxford is slightly lower but over a slightly longer time period, the huge salary premium will quickly overtake EDHEC students.
