Spain or Mexico..for non native(Indian) spanish speaker?


Hello everyone,

I know Spain has some of the most reputed bschools in Europe, but I have heard horror stories about job prospects in Spain after mba.
Mexico, on the other hand, seems like an emerging market for MBA and IPADE is the best in Mexico, much cheaper than IESE, ESADE etc. So, if I am less likely to find a job in spain and more likely to use the big spanish university brand name in South America, then won't it make sense to spend less and get a degree in central or South America itself?

What are your thoughts about this?
Which country should I go for?

Also, how would a degree from IPADE or EGADE compare to the big spanish names in the latin american job market?

Lastly, if anyone knows about the work visa policies of Spain then please update me about the same.

I have been learning spanish as a hobby, since a long time and I can say that I am on an intermediate or above average level right now, though I sometimes face difficulty in adapting to the pace in which the native speakers speak but that is the last hurdle left for me to master the language on an almost native-level.

Thank you.

IESE, ESADE & IE are top MBA schools and your outcomes will be great if you know Spanish.
I don't have a lot of idea about Mexican market but i believe the following post might help you get in touch with someone from IPADE

IE has a strong reputation and a good network in Latin America.

But yes, in general, the Mexican schools are better if you want to work in Mexico. Study where you want to work.
