Manchester, Kingston, HWR, ESCP


Andy_B
I try to find the best value for money MBA for international market. If I move to USA or Italy or some third country.
MBA, ranked high like ESMT might be little known on a local market.
I spoke to people in Paris, they know HEC Paris but not everyone know ESCP, and I guess outside of France, noone knows it.
But often people speak like "I took MBA in London" which sounds for me that if its not in top 5 scools in Europe - people do not know them.
it sounds like people know local schools in their country and top 5 in Europe.
I asked several of my HR friends and they said they see little difference between
Sctockholm School of Economics
London School of Economics
Berlin School of Economics

but on this forum people speak a lot that there is no reason to take low ranked business school.
do you guys mean that in New York or Milan they will see big difference between Cityname School of Economics? do you mean I will have more chances to get higher position?

You have asked a similar question elsewhere. You are mistaken about school names.

Best value is a hard concept. What's the best value for shoes? A $20 pair that lasts six months? A $200 pair that lasts six years? A $400 pair that last twenty years? Different levels of quality exist in the MBA market, and you get what you pay for.

It may be true that not many people in Somewhereville will know ESCP. Which is why people will suggest ESCP to you under certain conditions. For example: if you want to work in France, or if the school has strong presence/network in the country you plan to work at, etc etc. And often for MiM or Finance rather than MBA

There is a reason why people come to these forums or hire professionals to find advice.
Because for every country people will suggest different schools.
For switching roles people will suggest different schools.
For mobility to move to new country people will suggest different schools.
For different budget people will suggest different schools.

A combination of all the above often is needed to find the best school for someone, which is why many people consult with professionals to find answers.

You don't seem to have a very clear idea of what you are looking for, or how to choose a university.
I recommend you click Duncan's profile and read the very useful information there.

There are in fact many, huge differences between these schools. LSE has the widest, strongest network among all of those schools, and getting a degree from LSE will most likely get you in the door, more quickly, at most places where you want to work. Beyond asking your friends, check out the alumni network on LinkedIn and do a bit more research.

Perhaps if you're sending CVs blindly to low-quality positions / recruiters, there might seem to be a huge difference between the schools. But when you're talking about high-level, management positions, blindly sending CVs is not how these jobs are landed. Rather, it's through the networks and the resources offered by your alma mater.
