MBA at Zagreb School of Economics and Management


Wenck

Are there any reviews or critiques of the MBA at Zagreb School of Economics and Management?

I'm an Australian internet entrepreneur currently living in Europe (but without permanent residency).

I want to do an MBA to improve my business skills at a relatively low cost, with low living expenses. Beyond the low cost, the ZSEM program appeals to me for a number of reasons, especially that the evening classes mean I could maintain my business during the day, at least on a part time basis.

But there are other things that I am unsure about. Visas, for one: it looks like the program attracts an international audience but since the program itself is part time, I wonder if the country even allows visas for international students. Not being a permanent resident here, this worries me a bit.

Quality of networking opportunities and placement services. I'm not looking to work in a financial services company or anything like that, but I'm concerned that I wouldn't have a lot of career support after graduation. And I don't know what they quality of the cohort would be like.

Indeed, the quality of support will be very low and so will be the cohort. Why not take an executive MBA?

Yes, I've looked into some EMBA programs but haven't found any in my budget. Do you have some suggestions for low budget programs in Europe?

I would certainly consider CEU as a better option for you. The Iowa MBA at CIMBA is excellent value.

Hey thanks for the recommendations. Just a couple of questions, which CEU program are you talking about? The full-time MBA, the Katalyst EMBA, or the IMM Executive MBA?

And the CIMBA program, it's a bit more than the ZSEM program, would I have access to more robust carer resources, and do you think the cohort would be better?

I am thinking of the EMBA, since that is what you are looking for.

The CIMBA cohort probably will be better, and the academic experience and the Iowa degree are certainly much higher. The students will still be rather national. For a great cohort you'd need to either go full-time or take a ranked EMBA.

Here's the cost info for the CIMBA part-time program, in case anybody is interested:

The full-time program runs around $25,000 USD.

Great value for the Tippie MBA, which the FT ranks in the top 70 worldwide and #2 for finance.
