MBA in Holland ??


I am going to the IMBA program at Nyenrode this October. Needless to say i was pretty convinced with the program and the business university. I received a fee waiver of 10,000 Euros. It was an icing on the cake.

Hey, congratulations! Can you maybe tell me how you achieved the fee waiver? I'm just curious about the policy of the school in that. Thanks in advance

Sure. I had applied for an Indian Scholarship. I had to write an essay and make a presentation on the essay (once selected for the next round) for the scholarship. You can check the scholarship details on their website.

I did not receive the scholarship (which is complete fee waiver) but they offered me a fee waiver instead.

Hope that helps

Thanks! I will have a look at their website, I had heard already that they offer scholarships.

Did you arrive with a specially good record, GPA and GMAT etc? I'm just asking to know if those scholarships are limited to studets very much above averga, because I'm afraid I might not comply with their expectations..

Not really. My GPA was a little above average. I consider my GMAT to be just about average Nyenrode GMAT hit rates (scores). And I strongly feel they will take only the scholarship essay and presentation into consideration when they make their decisions on the same (Others with a much higher score did not get the scholarships. So, i can tell.)
Good luck.

I am not sure what your other options are, but if you want to study in Holland, you may also want to look at Nyenrode Business University and Tias-Nimbas.

Your chances purely depend on your application essays, interview performance and your profile as a whole. Hope that helps.

Do not join a school in Holland. There are no jobs here. Dutch say that the speak English. Yes, they do when you are going to pay 20-30-40 ,000 euro a year for tuition fee. When it comes to offering a job, they want you to speak fluent Dutch.

Top Dutch companies do not come to campus for MBA jobs - they go to LBS, IMD, INSEAD to hire MBA's (Unilever, Shell, ING etc). 100k+

When they offer a job it is 40-50k and Dutch taxes are very high.

Most Indians, Chinese eventually end up going back to India anyways with a large sum of loans. The companies do not sponsor visa's. There are 100's of such candidates on facebook, linkedin. You can connect with them and find out their first hand experience.

Same problem with Spain and Belgium.

Indians do not speak languages and need visa sponsorship. If you have enough money and you are looking to spend a year in Europe. Then it is a good choice. All the schools you mentioned are FINE. If you want to get a job in Belgium, Spain or Holland. It will be a deal breaker. I personally know a lot of Indians, Chinese graduates either still looking for work or going back to home countries.

You can reach them via various groups online. It is not worth it to take 50,000$ loan and then realize that you will not find work here.

I would concentrate on bigger schools like IMD, INSEAD or LBS. Alternatively top rank schools in India, Hong Kong or Singapore.

Asia (India top schools, SG, HK) are better right now for getting a job if money is a constriction. You will have more chance of finding a job in Singapore when you graduate from NUS than from the 2nd/3rd tier schools in Europe.

Europe = IMD,INSEAD,LBS and couple of other UK schools are good options if you are Indian national . Fee is a large sum of money, scholarships are very limited , most people borrow money , they have some scholarships - look at the individual websites for details.

Good luck !

Smart, many of your comments attack RSM. However, the school obtains great salaries and rankings. If the school was really this weak, how could that be the case.

I quite understand that you are frustrated that the second-tier European schools do not have careers services strong enough to turn back the recession and to overcome the inability (of some) students to speak the local language, but the reality is that RSM is a great school for people who will be attractive for English-speaking multinationals, or who speak a second European language.

The school's facilities are totally on a par with other public universities, like Manchester or Cass, and are even on a par with private schools like ESADE, Lyon or HHL. The GMAT scores and salaries are proof of the students quality.

PS I have edited this to add in the (words in brackets).

I'm really not sure that these schools are unknown, especially in the context of a thread about MBAs in Holland.

Looking at the most recent FT ranking of business schools in Europe (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/european-business-school-rankings-2010), RSM, ESADE, Cass and EM Lyon are in the top dozen. Manchester is a top 15 European MBA. HHL is one of a handful of notable schools in Germany.
