I am looking to pursue an MBA in France for a variety of reasons. I'm from the US and work in finance for Walmart Corporate and have seen growth from an analyst to a manager during my three years. I want to do an MBA internationally because I hope to work in another country in the future. I'm very passionate about this. I want to do France because I speak French and my wife is from there.
While I had excellent grades in my undergrad, lots of international volunteer experience, and a strong resume, my GMAT score hovers right around a 600. This makes HEC and INSEAD difficult. My question is what are some of the other recommended options? I've looked at the MBA at Essec and Grenoble. Most of the rankings I have seen have both of these in the top 5. Those are the two I'm most interested in. How well are these schools looked upon? How big is the gap between the two? Are there other programs I should consider?
