Low budget mba programs in europe

As advised above by experts, please do not join low quality MBA like BBS. The cost is only one of the factor but the most important factor is one year of your life. The MBA is one time investment of life. Low quality MBAs potentially destroy your value both personally & professionally. Even low quality MBA cost is approx. 50 K Euro for one year. Do either good quality or do not do at all. Perhaps the best alternative to low quality MBA is to do short courses & improve the skills without wasting one year of life. It is shocking to see salaries in countries like Italy & Spain which are even lesser than India. Think carefully.

I think that's a bit sweeping. I can't think of a 50k euro MBA which is *low* quality. MBAs have many qualities. If you simply want a robust curriculum and a strong institution, then any triple-crown school will do.

If cost is the only factor then there are lots of other schools, accredited also, but more affordable than Bologna. But that obviously is not the only factor - for those who want to work in certain industries in Italy, the Bologna program would obviously be better than the low-budget alternatives like UC3M, CEU, and the others that are frequently mentioned in these threads.

I want to do an MBA in Europe too (on a budget). I considered UC3M, CEU and a few others in that price range, but then I started thinking about investing a little more. What benefits would I get if I did an MBA in Germany at Frankfurt School (32k eur), or Mannheim (36k) or maybe in Portugal (Lisbon MBA, 36k)... Would they be worth the investment?

Maybe. Those German schools would probably be better for career growth than the others - assuming you can land a job in the country after you graduate (which means you probably have to speak German.)

One can easily see total cost:

30 K fees
10 K living
5 K logistics
Approx-45 K
Add one year cost of lost salary . So total cost is beyond 55 K.
EMIs are in range of 600-800 euro for 10 years.
Pay back period ???

Some of these low ranked schools do not have even basic facilities like a library. No good faculty. Very few full time faculty. Almost no career services after MBA. So, it is huge investment. Honestly schools are doing business in name of MBA. One can do MBA easily without GMAT from there but then be ready to return home. So be careful while choosing the school.

Also DO NOT go to countries like Italy & Spain for an MBA. Huge recession & MBA is unknown there. A very critical factor is knowledge of foreign language e.g. fluent German in Germany for career opportunities after MBA.

I don't know about flat out not going to Spain and Italy for an MBA... Spanish economy is growing and I know some people who are doing quite well there, having gone to Madrid to do their MBAs and now they have a startup.
