MBA CORVINUS


nanobd

Hi, i got selected (with a full tuition scolarship) for the Full time MBD at Corvinus university. I currently live in South America, I am 36 years old and I have 10 years or work experience.

I have to decide soon if I take this opportunity or not. Taking it would imply leaving my job and my country for two years, but I am not sure what couls I achieve with an MBA from Corvinus.

An alternative is to stay in my country and study an MBA here in an acredited AMBA school (universidad ORT).

What do you think I should do?

Either start a new career in Europe or get a higher position at a Uruguayan firm. I don't speak Hungarian, you are right

Europe has a profoundly national labour market. Languages matter. Take a look at:
- Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143
- Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713
- The sad facts about scholarships http://www.find-mba.com/board/37055

If you want to work in Hungary, learn Hungarian and then take a one-year MBA in Hungary at the CEU. If you want to work elsewhere in Europe, look at where your language skills will be most valuable. But for a whole new career in Europe you'd need an excellent school with an internship programme, strong career services and high international mobility. Spain would be the obvious place to look.

In terms of returning to Uraguay, you will know how a Hungarian MBA will be viewed in your country, but in European countries outside Hungary I don't think it's a big help. Obviously, Universidad de la República and Universidad ORT are the big networks there and ORT is especially good for sales, consulting and finance roles.
