Which institute should I choose ?


Hoo
I have received admission offers from the following institutes :-

1. Grenoble Ecole de Management, Grenoble - Master in International Business (MIB)
2. Nova SBE, Lisbon - Masters in Management
3. Lancaster University, UK - MSc Management
4. University of Glasgow, UK - MSc Management

All are TRIPLE ACCREDITED by AMBA, AACSB & EQUIS.

I am waiting to hear from the Warwick Business School, UK and the University of Edinburgh, UK.

Now, after receiving these offers, I am really worried about which one I should join !

I am from India. My intention is to return back to India ( - after finishing the program / after working abroad for some time ).

The main aspects I am worried about :-
1. Job prospects ( - in that country / in India )
2. Salary after graduation
3. Employer reputation around the world (Among firms like JPMorgan, EY, KPMG etc.)
4. Reputation of the institute in India against IIMs, SPJain, IIFT etc.

Please help me to choose the BEST program. Thank you.

Surely the British schools will have most brand equity. In the firms you are targeting, which schools have the most Indian alumni on LinkedIn?

Hello, Duncan.

I find that, in some company there are more alumni of Grenoble and some company has more of Lancaster, Nova.

But the problem is, in UK you will get only 4 months extra which may not be sufficient to get a job. And in this case, France allows at least 1/2 years more and for Indians that is again extended by 2 more years (Thanks to PM MODI !) ! But, I cannot speak French and don't know how much I will progress till the internship time comes and am fearing if not speaking French will cause any difficulty.

I find very little feedback on the MIB at GEM (though ranked at 13th by FT and 20th by The Economist).

I am confused. Do you want to return to India or work in Europe? Can you give me an example of a firm in India with more alumni from Grenoble than Lancaster?

Some company like KPMG has more from GEM, Deloitte has more from Lancaster, Barclays has more from Glasgow, etc.

My intention is to work for some time in Europe, then return to India.

If you want to work in France then take a year at a French university to learn academic French intensively and then take a MS taught in French at a grande ecole. That would be the only safe path to work in France.

Otherwise, focus on the UK schools. KPMG has more Gem alumni *in India* than Lancaster? Weird.

Yeah, that's surprising to me as well.

The other person is mistaken. Linkedin shows just one GEM alumna at KPMG India, while Lancaster has nine.

PS Worldwide, it is also the case that both Lancaster and Glasgow have, individually, more KPMG alumni than GEM.
