UK vs. France vs. Italy vs. Ireland

Hi everyone,

I am considering taking an MBA Full-Time in september 2017 and after contacting with some B-Schools and getting feedback by the admissions boards, I am eligible for these programs:

UK
Alliance Manchester Business School
Strathclyde
Oxford
Other London Schools: Metropolitan, Queen Mary,... (neither LBS nor Imperial)

France
HEC Paris
EmLyon

Italy
SDA Bocconi
Politecnico di Milano (MiP POLIMI)

Ireland
Trinity
UCD

and ESCP EUROPE (London + Paris)

I come from Spain, I have 3 years of work experience in consulting and I speak Spanish, French and English with fluency.

I am looking for a change in my career from consulting to other industries (management for technology industry, automotive, fashion,...) as I am an engineer.

My GMAT is 650.

I need some light with regards to the business school I am considering. I am looking for a nice business background course with good career advice and services.

Thank you in advance!

Oxford is obviously the best of these. What do you mean when you say you are eligible? Most students who meet the criteria of top schools will not be admitted.

When I say that I am eligible, I mean that I have received positive feedback from the admissions boards.

Apart from Oxford, which seems to be the best one, what are your thoughts on the others?

And what do you think of doing an MBA in Ireland, France or Italy instead of UK (where I think the MBA scenario is wider as well as the career options)??

Thank you!

HEC Paris is the best option I think, with one of the strongest reputation among European business schools.

Since you don't have one specific career goal, I think the rankings are a useful guide. If you have a pre-existing network in Ireland, France or Italy then they are certainly useful options. The UK labour market remains the most open to foreign MBAs.

In my opinion, to learn more about career and services opportunities the best solution is to contact directly with the alumni.
