St. Gallen MBA career outcomes

Hello,

Can anybody elaborate a little on the career outcomes for the St. Gallen MBA? Especially for non-EU residents looking to work in finance in Switzerland and Europe more broadly. Any insight would be valued.

Excellent outcomes assuming you speak and write German to a professional standard.

It's the second best school for international mobility, behind IMD, according to the FT. That's a pretty good sign that it does reasonably well at placing people in Switzerland, at the very least.

I think HSG is good at picking MBA students that will fit with its employers. For example, HSG was the only MBA that turned me down (several excellent European schools admitted me, and was selected as an exchange student at Columbia, Tuck and UCLA). If my German had been higher than B1, perhaps I would have been selected?

I have basic German skills. Can one not find an English language finance job in Switzerland?

If you had notable advantages over a bilingual classmate, quite possibly.

I agree.
At an MBA fair they recommended me to apply for the EMBA in a few years if I wasn't sure. Other top 10 schools were like hawks telling me I should apply to their programs and I would make it. Even with less than the required experience or without having a budget and employee management role.

I still don't know what would be the best option for myself. Senior role in finance, working in the French-speaking part of CH. Planning to continue my way up the corporate ladder of success. And probably becoming an entrepreneur one day.
Suggestions? :)
