Europe MBA Spring Start


Tuan12
Hello!

I am from China but I want to do my MBA in Europe. I guess I missed the deadline for fall so I am going to aim for spring to start. I would like to apply to HEC Paris, Rotterdam School of Management, IMD, and ESMT.

Is there another school I can consider? It would be nice to apply to 5 schools to maximize my chances.

I took the GMAT and got 700. I do not intent to stay in Europe after I graduate, but come back to China to work for my family's business.

Take a look at Which schools start when http://www.find-mba.com/board/41131

If family business is your interest, then surely EDHEC should be on your list? IMD feels like a strong option. Considering the strength of family firms in the French, German, Italian and Swiss markets. Maybe look at HSG and Bocconi too? Given the Dutch emphasis on export, RSM could be interesting but I don't think of the Dutch as being strong on family business: that seems more a thing for the Catholic zone of Europe.

PS ESMT is a great school but isn't it more about big corporates rather than family business?

Thank you so much! I did not look at EDHEC but now I am very interested. I like the entrepreneurship track. The Global Executive MBA Family Business also looks interesting, but I was really looking for a full time MBA with cohort experience and the participant profile looks more aimed at students with more work experience than I have.

I understand that EDHEC is adding a family business track to its full-time MBA as wel.

Looks like it should have started in 2013, although I can't find any reference to it on the EDHEC website:

My guess is that full-time students will simply join part of the track designed for the EMBAs.
