I am a Mechanical Engineer and am considering applying for an MBA. Given the financial constraints, I believe it’s not always possible to target the top tier universities that are recognized globally although the investment is bound to pay-off immediately. Anyways, I just need some information on whether to consider going for an MBA to a mid-tier university (Birmingham, HEC Montreal, HHL, Frankfurt School, Ottawa etc) which normally provide limited international mobility or to rather just consider a well recognized local MBA within your own Country that has a well spread alumni network and industrial ties with decent job prospects. I know the exposure one would get from studying abroad would nonetheless be much more helpful.
Looking forward to your response.
