To be honest, St Gallen and IMD are the two ones to go for if you want an MBA out of the top ones in the rankings.

So for the French part, IMD - why is that nothing for you? Tuition?

I think if you really insist on French speaking Europe you should better look around in France, there is a lot of choice.

How do you know it's good. Is it accredited by any major organization? I did not find anything on their website.

Not accredited? Thats not possible! For me this was one of the serious schools. But maybe I am wrong or mix something up?

I will check that out and come back to you guys, I really don't want to spread wrong information here.

I just checked their website again. SBS is accredited by several organizations, including FIBAA, which is the most important accreditation organization in German speaking countries. See http://www.sbs.edu/discover/accreditation.asp

The SBS dual MBA with the University of South Australia (UNISA) is accredited by Equis: http://www.sbs.edu/programs/dualmba.asp - but not the regular MBA. However, that is not unusual for schools in continental Europe and does not mean that the quality of the school is not good.

I did not find any ranking including SBS though. I think you should look for some additional information.

ok, that's what I thought - I was really wondering how could I mix that up.
About the rankings, you don't find SBS in the top ones, that's true, but it is the third Swiss school to appear (sometimes..) in the international rankings after IMD and St. Gallen

I have been reading all the comments about MBA Switzerland. Is the IMD really the only one you could recommend?

GSBA is well-known for its EMBA, but I don't think they offer a regular MBA.

Not everyone likes GSBA. There was a rather critical article about it in Spiegel.de, a German News site: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.spiegel.de/unispiegel/jobundberuf/0,1518,322987,00.html&sa=X&oi=translate&resnum=3&ct=result&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dwww.spiegel.de/unispiegel/jobundberuf/0,1518,322987,00.html%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DG

Hi noya,
HEC Lausanne is a quite good school but as you say as well in one of your posts, it is not in the top category. It does not appear in the rankings.
So again, if you want to have several options of internationally ranked schools, you better look in France!

Hi Uxl, well i had initially excluded IMD from my plan because i try not to take up any loans for my MBA, in case i have to work in Indonesia (am not sure whether the salary will suffice to cover loan repayment). now, after talking to several MBA graduates, i reconsider my earlier view. Will probably apply to IMD and if my savings are not enough, will try scholarships or loans. cheers

Hello Noya,
if I understand right you are from Indonesia? Mee too, so I understand very well that you hesitate about taking a loan.
Talking about scholarship, do you have an idea how to get one, as an Indonesian student?
Thank you very much in advance!
