I think you'll have to use google to do that. I don't think you'll find many.

IE has one but you are right I have not seen many. I asked because my work experience got me interested in labour related issues.

I would love if you took the time to suggest the rage of business schools I should aim for.

I have a degree in business management with 72% and a GMAT score of 620

I have 3.5 years of work experience:
1.5 years as Marketing Manager for a export house
1 year as team lead for a Fortune 500 company's account in an employee engagement company
1 year as new product developer - started a new line of business for an online lifestyle magazine

I have a total 6 moths of internships and volunteer work which include AIESEC

What kind of colleges do you think I should apply to. I would like to work in consulting after my degree

What are your goals? Why a *dual* degree? That's a very rare thing in Europe, after all. I guess NUS in Singapore will have dual degrees.

I have a Bachelors in Business Management with 72%. I was among the top 10 in class

I am 24 years old

GMAT- I took it right after college and got a 620(81% verbal and 50% math) I can do much better if I need to take it again.

What are the chances of I getting accepted? Are there areas I need to improve, are there other schools I need to look into

Reasons for the dual degree.

My first job was at a cashew processing and export plant. Working as the marketing manager there I reported directly to the senior partner. I noticed that workers at our plant in some states were much more productive than workers in other states. I researched and found the reason to be disparity in minimum wage. Many such experiences there got me interested in labour issuse and I was fascinated by the was govt policy impacts how businesses and it's workforce interact.

I was interested in policy but I was also very interested in learning how to run a sucessfull business. My second job let me explore both- I was working for an employee engagement the company had all top software companies as its client. As head of client servicing for my team, I was working with Top HR executives defining and implementing policy goals on range of issues like, diversity, gender, work life balance etc.The real impact we had and the feedback I received made we want to do this on a larger scale. The company I worked for was democratically run, we were encouraged to think like entrepreneurs and got exposure on every aspect of running a business. I thrived in this environment. I loved everything about running a business that adds value. I learnt valuable skills that I was put to the test.

I moved to my home town mainly to figure out my plans for higher studies. I started working for the cities largest lifestyle magazine and event company. I co-founded a branding and background music company with them. The business is stabilizing and I have free time in my hands now. I have started working part time with a local think tank doing a comparative study of HR practices of companies in the CiIty, This is interesting because most companies here are family run business usually bereft of HR policy or staff.

To be honest I would like to work at the juncture where business and policy meet. To be honest I don not know what a job there looks like, That is why I want to go to school, its to gain more knowledge and skills about both fields. And IE course looks like it has a good blend, for someone who want to launch their. career. Maybe in consultancy about labour issues, Working for corporations with a large workforce or social entrepreneurship could be future career paths.

I don't think you have a clear career goal. Do these jobs exist? If they do, do they recruit from IE? If not, can you recruit one through IE?

If I were you, I wouldn't necessarily look at dual-degree programs, but MBA programs that specifically look at the intersection between policy and business.

Geneva's International Organizations MBA might be worth looking at.

You'd have a ton more options if you were open to the US, including Booth's MBA/MA in International Relations, or the George Washington MBA program which features some relevant electives.
