Warwick vs Rotterdam


Hello,

I recently got accepted in to a few MBA programs (ESMT, Rotterdam, Warwick, Edinburgh and Bocconi). I have narrowed it down to two choices, Warwick and Rotterdam. I was wondering what your thoughts were on those schools. I highly value:
- Finding a university that will help me find a job in Europe or the UK after graduation (I do not have a European passport).
- Prestige/Ranking of the University
- Quality of professors and students.
- I hope to work in consulting after graduation (I only speak spanish and english, no dutch).
- Unity/Friendship with other fellow classmates.
- Academic Quality
- Extracurricular activities

This is a tough choice. Both are high quality, solid business schools so you've got that going for you.

Generically speaking, Warwick, given its ranking would be the better choice of MBAs. However, RSM does rank more highly for international mobility and, as from previous discussions on this site which you can find if you search, does do surprisingly well in placing MBAs into Netherlands-based companies. Plus, the uncertainty of the Brexit situation makes a lot of international students a bit weary of many UK schools.

What I would do if I were you is look at the alumni profiles for both schools on the FT Global MBA ranking, and see if one better lines with your career goals (it looks like many MBAs from Warwick for instance go into finance / banking).

Local language skills are more necessary in consultation than in other roles because consultants are customer-facing.
