European MBA - UK/ Germany


JJ1098

Good day,

I had posted earlier this year on this forum & is currently considering a full time MBA in 2021. I am a Indian, Mechanical engineer, based in UAE for the last 10 years with an experience in project management 5 years & business development 5 years in core field. I only have a mediocre GMAT score of 610, but I have a first class in Engineering.

I am primarily interested in pursuing an MBA in UK. My goal is to move to a role of management consultant/ analyst or continue in business development in the country I learn. I intend to apply for UEBS & Durham. My budget is around 25k pounds. would you suggest applying to better schools such as Manchester/ Cass or Cranfield. These are way out of my budget and would require a scholarship to study there if i am selected.

Iam a bit apprehensive about current situation in scotland, I like Edinburgh but Iam not sure if there would be a Scottish/ UK independence movt. down the line and would I still be eligible for the 2 year stay back & opportunity to work in UK if Scotland leaves UK. Iam not sure if Scotland would offer job opportunities for expats like me in such a situation.

With this in mind & also thinking of managerial opportunities for a mechanical engineer, I have considered applying to German schools too. I have HHL, ESB & Pforzheim in mind. Iam German level A1 & I intend to be level B1 by the time I enter the school, studying full time on an intensive course over the next few months.

I would appreciate your kind inputs & thoughts on the above said. I could work to improve the GMAT score to around 650 if required.

Many thanks,

I suggest that you, and anyone tempted to reply, review your thread from April. Your goals remain less than focussed and it will be hard to give you a really successful recommendation. Other things being equal, your limited budget will be better spent on a year in an intensive language course at a state university in mainland Europe followed by a specialised MSc in a shortage/growth field taught in that language.

Thank you for your response, If I am considering UK schools, and plan for adequate budget by loans or so, I think the language would not be an issue right. To move onto become a management consultant/ analyst, which course would you suggest for my profile?
Durham/ UEBS/ Manchester/ Cass. would appreciate your thoughts.

If you look at individual entries on the FT MBA ranking, you can see the percentage of each school's cohort that goes into consulting, and the international mobility of the cohort. Depending on the sort of consulting you want, use the post about LinkedIn on my profile page.
