MBA for Lat.Am.


noémie

Hello,

I'am French, and I have alrealdy a Master's degree in the International Management. Also, I've especialized in trade with Lat.Am.

My aim is doing an MBA in Luxury. Some schools told me that it doesn't matter I have not yet professional experience to integrate an MBA. Is that true? And if it is, will I be credible at the international, doing an MBA without previous professional experience?

Also, I absolutely don't know which MBA is the most appropriated (no matter the country I have to go) to work with Latin America (most Brazil) in the future. Is ESSEC recognised over there? Preferible to do an MBA in Lat.AM? In the USA?

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks a lot,

Noe

The ESSEC MBA in International Luxury Management is great, probably one of the best in the world, but it requires at least three years of experience to apply.

And broadly - any MBA program that's worth it is going to require at least 2 to 3 years of work experience - and more practically, without any practical foundation, an MBA is mostly going to be meaningless.

You might instead look at MSc programs in luxury management: EMLyon, Skema, and the International University of Monaco are probably a good place to start.

Whether these would be good routes into Latin America - and its luxury sector - is debatable. A much better strategy would be to work for a few years and then do an MBA program either in Latin America or at a school that has strong ties with the region (IE Business School, for instance.)

Perhaps an MSc program at ESADE? They don't have anything specifically in luxury, but another option like marketing or general management might work. They've been building ties in Latin America, so they could potentially have good connections with employers in the region.

Hello Noe,

I am a current student in ESSEC's MBA in International Luxury Brand Management. Many of the courses offered by ESSEC have an emphasis on Latin America (and in particular Brazil) given that it is an important, emerging market. ESSEC is recognized worldwide, and in fact we have several current students from Latin America.

However, this MBA program is geared towards students with approximately four plus years of work experience, and undergraduates straight from university and encouraged to wait a few years to apply. With this in mind, I would recommend that you attend some informational sessions in the meantime and once you've accumulated a few years of work experience, apply to ESSEC.

Thanks,
Emily
