ESADE vs Vlerick (Full Scholarship) vs WHU (50% Scholarship)


Hi, I am a student of law and economics. I have been accepted to three very amazing programs in Europe.

1) ESADE, Spain (No Scholarship) FT Rank: 5 (MiM)
2) Vlerick, Belgium (Full Scholarship + Belgian Govt Scholarship) FT Rank: 15 (MiM General Management)
3) WHU, Germany (50% Scholarship)

I am a Non European and after my masters, I am planning to work in Europe. As Spain is suffering from a worst economic crisis in Europe, therefore I am too reluctant to go there even ESADE's placement rate is below 90%

With a 100% Scholarship @Vlerick + Belgian Govt. Scholarship to cover my living expense it stays on my top priority, Also there placement rate is 98% with Good median salary 60K Bucks.

Can you please help me !!!!

Few students at Vlerick are foreigners. If you speak French and Dutch, then it looks like a good option.

WHU has much higher salaries, better international mobility, more international students, and the best career services. The additional scholarship is small compared to the added salary. The extra year also allows you the opportunity to bring your German to a higher standard. I would choose WHU.

PS WHU generally requires that students arrive with a undergraduate degree in management or economics. Vlerick doesn't ask for that. If you have a place at WHU then you probably have a degree in business. The Vlerick course might not be challenging or lead you to a much higher level, since only the final semester will touch on content you don't already know.

Yes, average salaries at WHU according to the FT rankings are something like 50 percent higher than the other schools! Sounds like if you got the average salary coming out of the program, you'd make up for the added investment in not too much longer. If you think about it in terms of long-term ROI, surely WHU is the better choice.

your language skills (do you know Spanish? French? German? at which level?) and where you want to work are maybe also things that you want to consider.

adding to your scholarship information: as you still have time, you can try to aim for scholarships in Germany as well. Living expense scholarships in Germany are awarded separately from the universities/business schools. If you search for scholarships by using DAAD I can imagine that you find something. However, you might need time to search and apply for these.

Dear All,

I thank you so much for your valuable time and helpful responses, I already have B1 Level of german language skills. I am definitely going to apply for German scholarships but I strongly agrees that the placement rate and average salary @WHU looks too attractive and overshadow the price factor.

I also request you please tell me, if you have any other similar program in mind with great repute in the field of General, Strategic or International Management.

Thank you so much again for your time and support. :-)

Yes, if you can improve your German to professional fluency between now and the end of the program, then your chances of getting a great job in the country would be better.
