40,000 Euro is a lot...

But ESSEC is one of the Internationally known MBA in France.

Can you speak french? Is Paris your main destination after graduation?
If yes, then you should take the offer.

With fluent french and MBA from ESSEC, I would dare to bet that you will get a good job in Paris.
The brand name of ESSEC is on par with HEC, french wannabe-MBA-students are willing to do anything to get into these two universities.

Because you probably know that good MBA comes with high price tag.
Borrow money from banks, sell some of your unused assets (ie. Your Rolex watch *just kidding*)

Alternatively, you can find MBA in U.K. for less cost. Like warwick, cranfield, lancaster.

Btw, if you don't care much about brand recognition, you can apply to Monaco MBA.
After you graduate, you can find lots of opportunities in Monaco since it is European Tourist destination.
Some people even consider that Monaco is the playground for the rich and famous.

Thank u Rhino for ur help
I got admission in IMHI, I knw its a good college to be in and have no doubt abt its reputation. The only concern is ROI, bcs its a huge investment.
I want to work in Europe for some time and I speak basic French, so that restricts my opportunities to work in France.

You can always learn french extensively. 24/7.
I've skimmed the IMHI website, it looks solid.
All the participants seems to be getting great jobs.

If you have the money, you should go for it.
You shouldn't care much about ROI unless you already married with kids. or having some sort of financial distress.

To be frank with you, if you work in socialist countries like france, germany, italy. You won't be making much because of high tax rate. But there are subsidies from the goverment.

I also had similar issue regarding ROI last month.
But I've decided to go for it anyway. Because I know that if I don't take the opportunity now, I'll regret my decision in the future.

Hi,

I'd also recommend a UK mba, at least then you don't need to worry about language problems. Have you considered Lancaster? It's well ranked with a great international reputation.

Hi Ankit,

You might want to have a look at La Rochelle Business School in France.

We offer an MBA in Tourism Management, which gives you the chance to focus on Hospitality Management in the 2nd year, and can be taught entirely in English.

As for costs, the course costs are very close to the prices for French students, unlike UK courses which often make international students pay considerably more.

Do have a look at our website,
www.esc-larochelle.fr , or contact me with any questions.
You could even still apply for a September 2010 start!

Good luck :)
