I'm also considering the future. Hult is improving in the global ranks. Maybe 5 years from now it will be more prestigious. Might not ever get to the level of an IE or LBS but might be in the Top 20, who knows?.
Yeah, compared to some of the UK schools on the FT ranking, Hult has at least held its own over the past few years - although it is dropping in the Economist's rankings.
At least along those lines, the school's probably a good call.And the fact that I'm choosing an "Marketing MBA", as you said, its because I am not a Business graduate and I wonder if I actually need a regular Full MBA.
I think you'll get an understanding of marketing in any good general MBA program. The question is, do you need to focus on it? You might find that a focus makes you too specialized in the future.
That would be the case if I decided to do a post-graduate course. Post-graduates are very very specific to a certain field while a Marketing MBA...well, any company needs a marketing team so I think it doesn't narrow my choices that much.
Well I've given this a lot of thought and no, I'm definitely not able to go to a U$ 50.000+ school at the moment (tuition only, not counting living expenses). And I'm not getting any younger and I do not want to risk the chance of waiting another year or so to do it. So I'll probably go to Hult and try to make the best out of it.
I still think doing an international MBA program from an accredited school, even if it is a C-level one, is better than not doing it at all. We all have to play with the cards we are given.
