MBA Europe - 2013


MBASOUL
I am planning to do an MBA in 2013 in Europe. I am Argentinian but with a EU passport. I want to stay in Europe or go to US for (at least) the next 5 years after the MBA. I have applied to LSBF/GGSB, Copenhagen Business School and EADA.
- Which school would offer more options to get a good job in Europe?
- Which school has a better reputation?
- Which will produce the largest salary increase?
Thanks!

Copenhagen Business School is your best option, generally. It's not FT ranked but has decent placement stats, especially if you're looking to work in Denmark.

EADA would be a good second - but the economic climate in Spain isn't great, so this might affect your post-MBA plans. Although since you're from Argentina I would expect you speak Spanish - which would give you a better chance than others who go to schools in Spain and do not speak the language.

I wouldn't consider LSBF/GGSB.

A key question you want to ask yourself is where you want to work after graduation - both in terms of location and industry/functional capacity, as each of these schools offer different things.

Have you considered Iese Business school in spain or London Business School in the UK (depending on the location your are most keen on)? According to Financial Times ranking for top business school, these been rated amongst the top 10 business schools in Europe, particularly for MBA and management courses. Plus, I've heard it's got good post-education employment prospects. You can check out FT ranking results for more info to help you decide, or even visit http://www.london.edu/programmes/mba.html. It looks very interesting.

Hi,
you could try to look for ESSEC Business School in Paris, France. The structure of the program is focusing in emerging markets and international exposure. For example, my experience was: 1st term (3 months) and half of 2nd term in ESSEC Paris Campus, the other half of 2nd term (1 and 1/2 months) in ESSEC Singapore Campus, exchanges (1 week or up to 3 months) with partner schools (if you opt in), 1 field trip to an emerging market (this year to South Africa market), and final consulting project will also be in an emerging market (I got a position in India). If this is something that you'd be interested in, check out www.essec.edu for the Global MBA program.

Bests,
R.C.

This depends. Firstly, I probably wouldn't consider the EADA - Spain is a tough nut to crack right now with the economy (especially if you don't speak Spanish - do you?)

CBS is actually a really good option. Copenhagen is a good place to be, and the Danish economy is doing well; this improves your placement chances. And generally, you'll be fine with English in the workplace there.

A program in Europe is probably not the right choice if you want to go to the US after graduation.

Smurfit and Trinity are the only internationally-accredited full-time MBAs in Ireland. Since that is just two schools, I think you can find the costs yourself.

Almost all parts of Dublin are very safe, and Smurfit is in a very calm and beautiful location outside the city. If you want to work part-time, expect the colleges to not encourage that since the MBA is very intensive. It might be better for you to find a year MSc, like the CEMS programme http://www.smurfitschool.ie/mastersprogrammes/internationalbusiness/mscininternationalmanagementcemsmim/#d.en.35031
