Help Choosing a MBA

Why not divide the average starting salary by the fees? That is the RoI. But actually the thing to compare is the NPV. A 20k investment that boosts your lifetime earnings by 500k has a better Roi than a 40k MBA that boosts your salary by 900k, but the latter is clearly the better investment. Don't underinvest in yourself !

Thanks Duncan you are very correct.
It seems that UC3m is the cheapest and a good quality school but does not have the best NPV.

Would you mind telling me your thoughts on Hult, International university of Monaco, SHU, and Cincinnati?

In the short term I don't mind which country I work but in the long term I would like to return to America.

It seems like you are looking at a broad range of programs - which is good to start with, but I'd try to narrow it down in terms of geography. Why not stick to programs state-side if that's where you want to stay? Or are you particularly looking for an international experience while you're doing your MBA?

General thoughts on these programs: stay away from SHU, since it's not accredited by any reputable organization.

Hult is the only one that shows up in the FT rankings; both Hult and EADA are ranked by the Economist.

Cincinnati's grads feed in to local and international finance-based businesses, as well as into some health organizations.

Thanks Duncan you are very correct.

Thank you ezra. I appreciate you taking the time to reply.

I am looking for a international experience and I would like to work for a multinational company after graduation.

My only concern with Hult and EADA is that they are not as well known in the states (Even though Hult is an American School).

Sacred Heart University in Luxembourg is accredited by the AACSB.

Why are these your only choices? It's a very odd assortment of programs.

If you want to work in the USA, study in the USA.

Hi Duncan,
Yes it is a odd assortment but I was just trying to get into the best MBA program that I could given my profile.

I would like to work abroad but I was just thinking about if I eventually come back to the U.S.A. how would the MBA help me (given that one carries the MBA though one's career)

Are their any schools you might recommend?

My mistake.

It is 540.

Have you thought about retaking it? I mean, even Hult's admitted students average about 610. Unless the rest of your profile is extraordinary, I doubt you'd be competitive.

Thanks for your outlook ezra.

I wouldn't say my profile is the best because I know their are a lot better profiles. But I did receive a previous acceptance to Hult's MBA (Probably because I am American).

All of the schools I have mentioned I have or probably can get admitted to (For EADA I took the EADA test).

Can you recommend any out of these schools or maybe one's I have not thought of?

I never heard of anyone being turned down by Hult who met its minima.

Thanks fishman appreciate it. was EADA recognized when you came to America by employers?

Duncan,

Would you say that Hult is worth it? It is the best ranked school I can get in to and it sounds like a very good program but I find it very expensive. Even with scholarship do you think it is a good investment?

I would say this. Your going to have trouble with recognition of MBAs unless you go to a top tier school. EADA is definately a bargain, and they have a great off campus training facility. Message me if you have more questions

I suggest that you don't rush into anything until you make the time to really improve your GMAT. The Hult name has been around for a handful of years and for profit schools can have turbulent lives (as you can see from Huron which previously occupied the Hult campus) because the economies of scale always push down standards. If you get into a more selective and better known programme the investment will pay back for your whole life.

I do think Hult has much older students that many other schools and I don't think you will have a worse education than at Sacred Heart. And remember that I am a European, and thus a little wary of for profit schools. It is not a terrible choice but a AACSB school will be better accepted in the US. How about the Iowa CImBA programme in Italy? That is great value and an amazing place to spend a year.

This is not a well-known programme. Since SHU's main campus is in the US, I don't think it will have strong placement services. I cannot imagine what sort of student this programme is the best fit for.

Hi,

My name is Antoine Rech, and I am the Associate Director of Sacred Heart University in Luxembourg. Indeed, SHU has launched a new program, the MBA with Internship. In September 2012, we welcomed 5 students from India, the US, South Africa and Europe. All these students were offered paid internships in Luxembourg at UBS, PwC, Lombard Assurance, etc.

Should you want to have more information about the program and if you are located in Luxembourg, I suggest that we meet and discuss your project. You can also meet students, faculty and visit our premises to make your own opinion.

Sacred Heart University also offers a part-time MBA program. Age of students: around 35 years old, working professionals (engineers, consultants, bankers, etc). Courses are offered on the evenings (from 6:30 to 9:30). Duration of the program: approximately 2 years with a flexible entry date. Number of nationalities: more than 15. Possibilities of taking courses in Asia and/or the US. The program is AACSB accredited.

Best,
