Getting MBA in Europe than working in Aisa?


yjholic

Hello.

I am looking for MBA programs which can provide job placement in Asia (Singapore or Hong kong).

I am very interested in HEC, Essec, SDA bocconi, but as I read disappointing opinions about the career service of these schools, I am very confused whether I should apply.

My intention for MBA is getting better perspectives in Luxury goods marketing, so I chose these schools, but as I am a French or Italian speaker(I am Korean), I guess that I will hardly get a chance of working in Europe(especially I don't hold EU residence & overall economy is really bad). Also I want to look for good schools in London which can provide me a solid programs. (I want to attend school in 2013, so it seems that applying US MBA is late.)

Because I want to work in Asia after MBA, some people recommend that I better to apply in schools in Asia, such as NUS, HKUST.

Here are my questions:
1. Career service of schools: HEC/SDA bocconi/Essec
2.Any recommandation for Asian MBA schools & London schools for Brand marketing?
3.How is the reputation of these schools among recruiters? (How active is Campus recruitment of these schools?)

Please, Please help me out for these issues. Any opinion would be very helpful!!

I will appreciate for your contribution.

If you want to work in the far east, study in the far east. If you want to hedge your bets, then the ESSEC campus in Singapore or the joint HKU-LBS programme are good. But, to be honest, I don't think you will get good placement in Asia without a campus in Asia. I think European luxury brands will go their Asian recruitment in Asia, not in Europe.

ESSEC is a good option.

From what I've heard, the luxury industry (especially the retail sector) in Asia is paying premiums for students with experience in the European brands and business schools. They want people who've been trained in the tried-and-true ways. So consider other top European b-schools for luxury as well, especially those with hands-on components where you can work directly in a brand:

SDA Bocconi
The International University of Monaco
HEC Paris

The schools you've listed have a good rep for working in luxury goods. HEC Paris has a joint programme with CUHK. Graduates from the programme have worked at the likes of international jeweller Pandora.

SDA Bocconi has an MBA programme with a concentration in luxury management. Students spend weeks learning at Bvlgari offices in Rome. They also on it get to do internship programmes at the likes of Bvlgari and other luxury houses.
