SMU Cox vs Emlyon (France)


samco.me
I have been able to secure admit in SMU Cox 1-yr Full time and Emlyon International MBA

*Tuition Fees Difference: around 30k (Emlyon way cheaper)
*Ranking: Emlyon-80 vs SMU Cox-92
*Duration 1-yr both
*Salary: Emlyon 90k vs SMU 100K (Emlyon data from FT only)

SMU has advantage with STEM course offerings. I am not sure how would that make a big difference in employability.

Emlyon offers traditional full time European program and SMU COX offers a fast tracked program.
Both without interships

I am targeting SCM/Operation/Strategy role post-mba (my work experience closely aligns with SCM and Operations role)

I am targetting better colleges in R-2 deadline (Jan-5,6) than these, but I have to take decision about these meanwhile.

Any suggestions please?

It's worth saying if you speak French or have the right to work in the US or EU. Either way, I think the MIT SCM master's has a higher salary.

Well, I don't speak french and neither do I hold right to work in US or Europe? I have already decided on pursuing MBA with long aim to expand our family business.

As per linkedin search i found emlyon way better than SMU in terms considering alumni density in 'logistics and supply chain' and retail industry. (courn't find any other relevant filter)

If employment is a key goal for you then the ability of the school to get a foreigner into work matters more than the alumni base. SMU would be a great place to find a spouse, and that is the most effective route to work in the USA. EMLyon is a good school (I was admitted to their International MBA) but without French I think your pool of potential employers is too small. I would look at Rotterdam, WHU or the MIT SCM programme in Zaragoza, which has a dual MBA-MS option.

Well Duncan I have already found my spouse. I agree with your point about language barrier in france and for that matter in other european region as well. but how so many indians still end up doing mba from germany and spain inspite of this fact. Also, if i did share with SMU that I shall be looking to work post-mba and not come back into business rightt away. Why would they offer me admission if employment were a concern there, and that too with with 15k scholarship.

There are lots of Indians. Lots of Indians take MBAs. That doesn't mean they have good outcomes. SMU wants a balanced and able cohort, and for it whether you find work is secondary to what you bring to the classroom.

Take note that if you somehow fail to secure a work visa or job in the US, your SMU MBA (if that is the program you choose to join) will not have much recognition in other western countries. When someone hears "Southern Methodist" from Texas, the first thing that comes to mind is bible school. You will then have to explain why you went to bible school for your MBA LOL. Sure SMU is elite in Dallas, but it has zero recognition outside the US.

I think these schools are so different that your school selection strategy must have been sub-optimal. Take a look at https://find-mba.com/lists/top-business-school-by-speciality/top-business-schools-for-supply-chain-management
