Thanks for your response. The reason I didn't apply is that I was told EDHEC and EmLyon are more or less equally reputed...However pls let me know if you think otherwise....so far on the basis of comments made by Duncan I m prioritizing Lancaster over others...but I m still pretty open to hear more about EDHEC n other b schools in France....
Duncan - I didn't get through ESSEC..so can you pls help me shortlist out of available options....
P.S. I am open to non consulting roles too..mainly at managerial position...
One last thing: Howz Trinity college compared to Lancaster? Is it possible to get more job opp in Ireland since they offer 1 yr work visa for students whereeas UK doesn't....
Thanks all for your inputs so far
From what I understand, EmLyon's MBA is more focused on Entrepreneurship. Not that I wouldn't want to be one, but that is not my immediate goal.
Also, as per The Economist, EDHEC ranks higher than EmLyon on most parameters.
One strange thing though is that though EDHEC ranks better on most parameters, EmLyon's Career Services seems to have a better rating.
Maybe Duncan can shed some light on why/how :|
I am focused on Program Management post-MBA and would like to use the degree to make a shift from a Specialist stream to that of a Generalist.
That said, I am not averse to selecting the Finance track[in EDHEC] provided I can foresee some roles that would suit my Engg+MBA background in IT-Banking & Financial Services. I am not looking to jump into core Investment Banking or Finance Consulting roles.
Also, since EDHEC is situated near a Tech park of which I forget the name :|, I think it's a better bet.
@Duncan: I tried the LinkedIn approach to see where alumni end up and as per that it would be a disaster to go to any school but HEC or Insead[in France], but that isn't actually the case is it..?
I see that EDHEC alumni especially of Indian origin are back in India, with not very great roles or not much of a change in their roles post-MBA-I find this disappointing.
If EmLyon's career services has a better rating, why should I choose EDHEC, assuming that EmLyon's Entrepreneurship focus doesn't take away from a Generalist degree..?
