Emba in Europe


Hi,

I'm really keen to start an emba in Europe in January 2016. I have 13 years working in education then took a career break to raise my family- during this time I worked in luxury retail and ran my own consultancy. I think the emba is better for me as I already have a BA and PGCE. My budget for tuition would be up to 20000 euros for tuition and resources I would work part time in the UK which would pay for my flights and accommodation. My only language is fluent English

Sadly the perfect programme for you, the University of London distance learning MBA, just closed. At your price point there are very few options with meaningful accreditation. The options I can suggest are limited, and really there is one outstanding choice:
- http://business.ceu.edu/tuition-executive-mba

Two other programmes come to mind:-
- http://mba.zsem.hr/index.php/programs/flex-mba\
- http://corvinus-mba.hu/programs-academics/executive-mba/

Also there is Touro College's Paris campus: http://www.touro.fr/academics/mba-program No accreditation, but a strong US degree.

Thank you for this- I'm considering the Leeds Emba which would enable me to participate and travel back to home to work. I've also considered Lisbon, Maastricht, Berlin and Brussels. Would you say that these institutions provided acceptable accreditation?

Would you also say that the emba would be more suitable given my need to continue working- my management experience was 10 years ago when I was very much in career progression mode and headed up projects for 5 plus years.

Thanks for your help with this.

I really want to stay away from distance learning as I'm MUCH better suited to an immersive experience

A small life in your budget could produce a great improvement in the options. The Lancaster MBA, for example, is 20k pounds and the Bradford EMBA is 18k (the same as Leeds). Those are closer to 25k euro. Bump up a little further and you get the Euro8MBA at 28k euro, which is an excellent programme that gives you six of the top business school networks in France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland.

I think it comes down to where you want your network.

Thank you very much for your responses- I am going to opt for an EMBA in Europe or UK but not distance. I hear what you're saying re pumping in extra funds Duncan

I'd also consider the alumni networks and the future trajectory of the schools. Bradford and Leeds have been around the same level for the last 20 years, but my sense is that Bradford has been stepping down during that period while Lancaster has been stepping up. I'd also think about the balance between network in Europe and outside. Both those schools have strong UK networks from their undergraduate programmes, and a great network in India from their MBAs. Bradford used to provide the NIMBAS MBA (which is now TIAS) but its network in Germany and the Netherlands is pretty weak now. That's why I am a huge fan of the Euro*MBA. So many schools brings a great diversity and faculty strength to the programme.
