HES Amsterdam PGP International MBA- How good is it?


Jana_s

Dear all,
I would like to know how good is the HES Amsterdam PGP International MBA programme. Its started only in 2003 and now its under Hogeschool van Amsterdam Economics studies. Does anybody have any idea whether this school's MBA degree has recognition among employers in Netherlands , UK or US? Its not in to any rankings list and tuition fees are low. So, I would like to know how good it will be for a working professional who would like to have a MBA for career growth prospects.I need good advice from the people in this forum before spending on this investment.

Thanks.

Generally the Hogescholen in Holland are seen a long way below the universities. Without international accreditation, it will not be taken seriously outside the Netherlands.

Thanks Duncan. Thats a good information to know about the Hogeschools. I was zeroing on that because it was from the existing Economics faculty and also the tuition fees was attractive compared to 30K or 40K in other schools. I am basically looking for a standard quality (not so high or not so low) MBA part time with reasonable fees ( less than 20 K) to have future career growth. Do you or does any body have any advice on this? - thanks a lot.

If you;re looking only in The Netherlands, then TiasNimbas and Maastricht are the best value accredited programmes. Also look at the Euro*MBA.

Thanks Duncan. Yes, I am looking for a programme in Netherlands. Do you mean Maastricht University school of Economics and Business ( not the Maastrict school of Management)? The details in the website sounds good with 6 B -schools consortium and 3 crown accredition. But, the program fees is coming to 33K Euros for this. Is it worth ?How good is this Euro* MBA, in terms of international visibility and among employers? Looking forward to your valuable inputs.

Yes, I was thinking of the university, not the MSM. The Euro*MBA offers you a substantial saving on the part-time MBA at the university and six alumni networks - useful if you do international business.

Either way, an accredited MBA will be an excellent return on investment and, as a rule of thumb, the more you invest the bigger your return. MSM also has AMBA accreditation.

Part-time MBAs generally are for people in work already, so they do not have a lot of good visibility with employers. Generally employers don't come to business schools looking for EMBA candidates.

PS If a modular MBA works for you then perhaps the Durham programme might also work? http://www.dur.ac.uk/dbs/degrees/mba/pt/ That fits into your 20,000 euro budget.

Thanks Duncan for the valuable inputs. I think , now I could make a choice between Euro* MBA or Durham BS DLMBA as both looks suitable for me. Euro * MBA is higher on budget but comes with other advantages like residential weeks and 6 B schools consortium. DBS is advantageous cost wise and more importantly a modular programme which gives greater flexibility considering my professional and financial obligations. I hope I can decide sooner keep sharing the details to this forum which was of great help so far.
