Grenoble MBA Paris


postetot

Has anybody heard anything about the Grenoble MBA being offered in Paris? I'm interested in applying because it's triple accredited and it's a bit less expensive than other business schools in Paris, like HEC Paris/Essec.

Problem is I haven't heard much about the program. Not sure if it's the same faculty who teach the program in Grenoble, or the quality of career services support, etc.

It's at the Maison de la Géopolitique. My guess is that the faculty and career staff will come in and go out by train. It may be quite a quiet campus. Why not consider Neoma, PontsSolvay or does SciencePo still offer an MPA? Needless to say, a better MBA will give you a much better return.

Yes, you sound like you want to be in Paris. Obviously EDHEC is a much better MBA than any of the schools I mentioned in my reply to you. And if you really wanted to Grenoble MBA, then it would be much better to do that in Grenoble.

And to bug you some more, what do you think of Purdue's One-year MBA for STEM professionals..?Do you think it's too early to comment on that? Would you say the chances of landing a good role in the US are better than landing good profiles in EU?

For a candidate who wants to stay in STEM and cannot speak French, then Purdue is a better choice.

I would agree with Duncan but with a slightly more cautious note: Depending on what industry you are looking to go into, a one-year MBA is not always the best choice.

Many US firms use internships (which are not generally part of one-year MBA programs) as a main part of their MBA recruiting process, and they also often sync their hiring with the rhythms of the traditional 2-year programs.

These two factors can make it a bit more difficult for 1-year students, especially international students, to land jobs in the country after graduation.

Thanks badux! I cannot think of a 2 year MBA at this stage.I have 6 and a half years of work -ex in IT Services with a focus on the Banking and Finance Industry. I intend to stay with IT and want to move to better roles, either Program Management or Business Development.I intend to stay in the country I study in.12 months is maximum I can devote to study, which is why I am not even considering 16 month or 2 year programs.
Looks like Purdue is out of the list.It will have to be Europe for me.

Badux makes an excellent point about Internships. Even with Europe's one-year norm, you'll find programmes with January starts often can allow summer internships.

Cool, that Neoma MBA program that you mentioned looks great and is also triple accredited! Tuition fees are not too bad either. :)
