Grenoble/Caucasus Dual MBA


Kingpie

Just wondering what people think of the Grenoble/Caucasus Dual MBA program. While I want to do my MBA with a real estate specialization, I keep coming back to this program because you get a triple-accredited MBA from Grenoble (not sure the Caucasus one means much, though their website says they applied for AACSB in 2020) for half the price of Grenoble's normal MBA (€17,450 versus €31,950 for Grenoble alone). It is also part-time and able to be completed in 18 months comprised of 3 to 5 day monthly sessions over weekends, so the time commitment is reasonable.


I have visited Tbilisi several times, and it is cheap and a great city that I wouldn't mind spending more time in.


Career-wise, I am looking for a European degree to help facilitate a move from Canada to Europe and continue my career in real estate, I already have EU citizenship but no EU work experience.


Given the cheap cost of living, nearly half-price tuition, and the possible ability to continue working remotely during the program, I am trying to see the downside of choosing this program (except for lack of real estate). What are your guys' thoughts on it?


Thanks.

I think this is a great option if you want to live and work in Georgia. I don't see any way in which this will facilitate your move to the EU, unless you intend to base yourself in Grenoble. Almost certainly, a degree in real estate taight in French would be a better invtesment.

Mainly to show a European school/MBA on my resume, I wouldn't have to list the Caucasus MBA just the Grenoble MBA. You're suggesting, perhaps, that I should select a European school in the EU?

Europe has profoundly national labour markets. Outside France, Grenoble is a no-name school. Study where you want to work, and that means understanding where you will be most valued.
