IE vs RSM vs ESMT


ppdrossi
Hello everyone. I would like to ask for advice and hear from your experience. Fortunately I managed to be admitted in three excellent universities, but with major differences in location, profile and cost. Now I need to decide between IE, RSM and ESMT.

I am a 30-year-old computer engineer. Brazilian, but with Italian citizenship almost recognized. I want to stay in Europe after the MBA and have a priority to pursue a career in technology companies. IMPORTANT: I am currently with little savings and have to get a loan to finance the full amount of tuition. My spanish is intermediate and I dont speak any german or dutch.

Considering the rankings the obvious choice would be IE, but ESMT gave me an 8 thousand euros scholarship that is tempting. Thus the cost of IE is more than double that would pay at ESMT. The cost of RSM would be the middle ground between the other two. Considering ROI, the right choice would be IE? IE looks too expensive.

Depends. If you ever wanted to return to Brazil, IE would be the default, given the school's alumni footprint in the region and the fact that you already have some command over the Spanish language. I would imagine that it's going to be hard to pick up enough German while at ESMT to begin making a career in Germany after the MBA.

Also, when looking at cost check out the average salaries of grads... In the most recent FT ranking, IE grads had an average salary of $159k, while ESMT grads made $107k... do the math: if you made the average upon graduation at IE, you would make up for the 8k scholarship and then some, just in one year...

IE all the way it is a no brainer, by the way have you done the MOOC Critical Perspectives of Management the guy was an IE Professor and he was awesome. I have done management courses probably over 10 times in various formats but noone came close to this course.

It resembles a real IE Class. Another course was Economic Policy again was spot-on.

I would think Eramus and Berlin courses will be excellent but to have the kind of setup at IE it would takes decades to build up the same structure in every learning aspect.

There's two students from IE doing their exchange here at RSM. If you're interested, I can connect you to them. They'll have some good insight when comparing the two.
