International MBA @ Audencia vs EMLyon? Any advice?


AlejM
Hello everyone,

I'm currently applying for both schools, since both of them have a focus on entrepreneurship and new venture management. Unlike many other people looking for the best schools to apply for a consulting company, I'm looking for a program that can offer the opportunity to establish my own business and/or innovate withing a company with that mindset. Excluding the fact than I do not speak fluent French but I'm working on it, which school would be a better option?

EMLyon definitely has the stronger reputation in terms of entrepreneurship, and more robust curriculum in this area (Entrepreneurial Leadership Project, entrepreneurship electives, etc.) I would say though that Audencia might be interesting for you if you're motivated at all by CSR / sustainability issues.

Thanks so much! Indeed, CSR is of my interest, and would consider complementing the entrepreneurship part with it. However, there is an additional detail that may complicate things a little bit when considered in the overall decision: Audencia's tuition fee, considering the scholarships I've been granted, is half of that of EMLYON. Is this stronger reputation worth the double of that of Audencia?

Again, thanks so much for your comments! It is of much help to have a fresh, unbiased opinion.

The question isn't if it is worth double. The question is whether it is worth more than the scholarship.
