MBA @ HSG


Dear Members,





I have received admit from HSG MBA and I want to know more about job prospects after MBA. I have read mixed reviews on internet about the program.



I want to know that is it worth taking a shot,as its huge investment.What are the job scenarios for non europeans in Switzerland.



I have been working for a swiss bank in their Wealth Management section since 6 years as a software engineer.



My post MBA goal is to become a Project Manager/Product Owner.

Tell us more about those reviews.

My take...

Plus
... Famous, storied school. Top DACH school since the 19th century
... Selective. They hire to serve their employers.
... Leadership level. Looking for people who can progress.
... Idyllic Swiss village.
Cons.
... Exactly the same things. Timeless, evergreen and conservative.
... Poor on diversity because Swiss business favours fluency in Swiss languages over International or female insights.
... Smug, defensive, premium niche incumbent thinking molded to the realities of Swiss brands
... Tiny, white, microagressive village.

You don't need an MBA to become an IT Project Manager. It would be more useful for your other goal of product management - many of the larger tech companies hire MBAs for that reason.

Yes, agreed. Product manager / team leader sounds like a more reasonable goal, especially in a larger tech firm. 

Do you speak German? If you're not planning on working in finance (and to some degree even if you are) not speaking the domestic language will be a liability.

The forum posts referred to on GMAT club seem pretty reasonable. The first post is a bit hard to follow but, certainly, local students are favoured almost everywhere.
