Europe MBA


lundstrm
Guys,

I would like to study for my MBA in Europe. So far I am thinking about applying to Tias, the Lisbon MBA, HHL and Copenhagen.

Do you have suggestions for others that I should apply to? Unfortunately my GMAT is only 620.

This is a really wide range of schools, did you pick them all based on your GMAT score? If so, that's probably the wrong approach.

A couple of factors you need to think about:
- your post-MBA career goal: where do you want to work? If you wanted to work in Germany I wouldn't go to Tias, for instance. Plus, industry: Lisbon places into more traditional MBA industries like finance and consulting, whereas HHL and Copenhagen are increasingly placing grads into the tech sector (+ biotech for Copenhagen)

- languages you speak: assuming you do want to work in Europe after your MBA, you should be very aware that it's often hard to get a job in a European country without speaking the local language.

- your GMAT score: if you can improve, you'd be competitive at a better selection of schools like ESMT, IE, ESADE, etc. -- assuming all your other factors like work experience, undergraduate performance, etc. are up-to-par

What do you think of the MBA programs at these schools:

IE Business School
ESMT
IESE Business School

I want to work in Europe after I graduate. I am fluent in Spanish and am at the B1 level for German.

These schools are all strong choices, and especially IESE, depending on your career goals.

In general, the Spanish schools show much better salary increases than ESMT, and they both have strong relationships with typical MBA employers in the consulting and financial services fields.

ESMT has a core network of founding partners - Deutsche Bank, Axel Springer, BMW, KPMG, and more - if you're interested in working in one of those firms and want to work in Germany (and have the motivation to get your German up to professional standards) - then this school would be a good choice. Post-MBA salaries are a lot lower than IE and IESE, though.
