MBA in Poland or other central europe country

Could it be a good investment?

This idea is interesting me since few years, and
i am now stronlgy taking into consideration that options. I saw there are some good school in the region. What are your opinion? which are the pros and the cons of doing there an MBA?

What do you mean by central European - i think Poland usually falls under the east European category.

as far es i know, there are no good schools in eastern Europe yet - this would probably change in a few years, but for now, i don't know of any good ranked and accredited schools over there. but I'm no expert - any one else?

as it is, i think that the business market in Poland is developing into an interesting one, and it would be wise to "get one's foot in the door", but be sure that the school your choosing is accredited and recognized internationally.

I agree with you. An MBA there could open new interesting challenges, but doing it in a good school is the key.

A couple of programs, both in Warsaw, seemed interesting:
the MBA offered by the Warsaw University of Technology business School and the one offered by the Warsaw School of Economics.

even if with strong parternships with very good school in the west, that programs are still young but, I think, up and going.

although it has partnership with lots of good schools, WUT is still only accredited by EFMD and EPAS, which is a good start but still not enough to make the program internationally recognized. the same goes for Warsaw school of Economics(although they say it is EQUIS accredited, reading the fine print will revile that it is the Canadian partner school the one that's really accredited)

and another thing - although given in English, i would say that if you want to work in eastern Europe, you must learn the local language and maybe also Russian.

borism, I agree with you, both the programs have the EPAS accreditation, that is let's say the first step to become a recognized program. They are both young programs, but to me they seem promising and interesting, and well known in poland, at least as far as I know after talking to few businessmen ad professors. But yes, they still need time to get really recognized.

I agree about the language, as everywhere in the world I would say: can you easily find a job in France or Germany without speaking French or German? I dont think so

words warning, both of these schools are very quantitative!
Especially the second one, if you are not adept and good with numbers you will simply not survive. most of graduates from Warsaw School of Economics work for top banks/consulting firms etc either in local Warsaw offices or London, Tech graduates usually end up in quant finance somewhere.

as a foreigner it might be easier to get in, but for locals its almost impossible unless you are gifted and did well in math/physics/economics olympics.

Twice world university programming champions in the past 10 years and always close to top.

What i also find interesting is that its Polish and Russian Universities almost always 1-3 even though all the top schools of the world are competing. MIT, Cal Tech, Princeton, Carnegie Mellon, Berekeley, have never beat them.

in order to find a post MBA position in the region, is it better a very reputated MBA from Us or Western Europe or a good local program?
