Hi All,
I am an engineering major planning on moving into the managerial segment of the energy sector. I plan on applying to these universities considering their reasonable tuition's and living expenses.
How good are these program in terms of international mobility & what reputation do they hold in the global market?

Koç and Monash are similar schools in academic reputation, but clearly one will be better known in the EMEA region and the other in Asia-Pacific. The two MBA programs are astonishingly similar, with around 12 courses, and a major project. Koç has electives an impressive set of management skills courses, while Monash has an international study tour. They get exactly the same score, 332, with the Eduniversal methodology. In practice, many employers will think you have a Monash MBA not a Monash MBA degree. Of course you won't have the same access to faculty or the same career resources on the Monash Malaysia campus, especially since the MBA there started last month.

That said, the cost is not the same. The *annual* cost is similar, but the Monash programme spans two academic years (in order to allow students to stay in their jobs, much like the Koç part-time MBA) while Koç takes one (it is a very intensive full-time program). Koç is 40k lira a year: Monash is around 50k lira a year, and so 100k lira in total.

PS If you had two years and 100k lira, then why not take the Koç-Yale double degree program, and get both a Koç MBA and a Yale Masters in Advanced Management. That would be an amazingly powerful education. https://gsb.ku.edu.tr/en/gnam-yale-som-collaboration
