MBA or Masters? I'm from Ukraine, 36 years old.


What is better option in my particalar case?
I have masters in economics, but in Ukraine. 12 years of working experience, mostly in business development role. 6 of them - was running small own business - international trade.
I'm tired of this. I want to change my path and even try to change country at least for several years for getting some experience.

I don't think I'm too old for this, but... after running small business does any business school accept me?
As for masters, age is critical, I think.

Will be thankful for good advices.
I did GMAT in 2013, the rezult was 680.

I thought about Denmark, Netherlands, but it's not the point.

Age doesn't matter much, especially outside the Mediterranean countries. I think The Netherlands is a great idea. Take a look at https://find-mba.com/board/general-forum/best-mbas-for-international-students-placement-35651 RSM could be a very good fit.

Thanks, Dunkan.

English is not enough for NL as working language?
Is it worth learning Dutch for a year before school in order to find better job afterwards?

MBA is better for me in my case?

You can get an initial role in English, but Dutch will be important for progression. Maybe come a few months early and get to A2 or b1.

Yes, unless you prefer to do a master's in finance an MBA will be better than a MSc.

Also search the board for RSM. A while back there was an RSM graduate who was saying that many of their cohorts landed jobs in The Netherlands even without Dutch language fluency.
