Pursuing an MBA in Europe


Hi everyone!

These posts have been amazing and have really helped me out! Seriously thank you :)

My question regards which MBA I should consider pursuing as someone interested in International Marketing. I currently work in Marketing and Advertising, and by the time I apply (Late 2019) I'll have worked for 3 years. GPA is a 3.2/4 from a top 10 Business School in the US, and I haven't taken my GMAT yet. I ask this because I've noticed some of these MBA programs are focused on finance/management/operations, where as I would like to pursue one with more of a focus in marketing.

If I have these interests in pursuing the MBA overseas, then working there for a few years in an international marketing setting (1-5 years) before returning back to the US, what schools should I consider? I'm open to any and all countries in the EU, and would prefer a cheaper tuition than in the US.

Thanks a million!

Assuming you only speak English, LBS is the only solid choice. Manchester would come second.

How is your French? HEC Paris is strong in marketing and has great international mobility statistics.

Most MBA programs will cover a mix in the core curriculum, covering all these aspects - finance, operations, management / soft skills, marketing, and more. While some schools will offer MBA specializations in marketing, I don't really think most MBA students actually need these to get marketing jobs.

(unless you wanted to delve into the quant aspects of marketing - such as if you wanted to get a job in the analytics /data side of an agency. In this case, maybe look into a master in marketing or a master in marketing analytics.)
