Dual Degree International MBA + Master in Big Data - IE spain


Hi All,

I currently work at Google Japan as Ads sales person, I was previously running and establishing own our two start-up companies as Board Director in Japan.
I'd like to develop my international leadership skill through a MBA program, in addition, I'd like to enhance practically quantitative skills like a business analysis.

Moreover, I prefer a period of a program is as short as possible because I'm 31 yeas old.
Then, I found the best program, "Dual Degree International MBA + Master in Big Data" at IE spain.
http://www.ie.edu/business-school/degrees/dual-degrees/international-mba-master-business-analytics-big-data/
This program is total 21 month (One-year MBA + 10-months MBD). If I take like the program at another school, the period might be longer.

However, I'd like to work at the US after a graduation. I would like to know it has enough to get internships or jobs in the US.

Although I hope there would be such programs in the US...

Thanks in advance

Ryo

If you want to work in the USA, then study there. Two years of study is two years; no-one in the US will think you've learnt more in two years at IE than you will have done at a top US school.

HI Duncan,

Thank you for your prompt advice. Certainly, as you mentioned, I should go a program of the US as a frontal attack.
Is it rare to employment in the US from IE and European school after all?

IE has a good program for me, as I mentioned, and very diverse, but I want to work the US, especially California.
I'm struggling with a dilemma between a good school and a work location. I aim to utilize below opportunities.

-International Exchange program for one term in California
-Internship in the US company
-Personal human network

Moreover, It is good for me that IE requires the IE test instead of the GMAT/GRE. Basically, almost top schools require the GMAR or GRE because I think to go a business school sooner and sooner.

Thanks in advance!

As someone who is no a US resident, I think it's not likely that IE will lead you to a job in California. International Exchange students generally do not get access to job interviews at the partner school (that was also my experience as a MBA exchange student taking classes at UCLA and the Tuck school).

The GMAT is a strong quality sign.

I would think that in most post-MBA roles, a second master's degree in analytics wouldn't add a substantial amount of value, unless you're planning on working in a tech-heavy position. Management positions tend not to require the depth of knowledge that this degree would require.

Rather, especially if you want to work in the US, a strong MBA there, perhaps with a specialization in analytics, might be an option. Notre Dame comes to mind, with its MBA concentration in business analytics; Carnegie Mellon - Tepper also offers a similarly-ranked MBA.
