Ireland or Scotland

Which is a better destination for an MBA right now, Ireland or Scotland?

I'm curious about career prospects in both countries, as well as visas for international students who want to work there after graduation.

I am looking at Trinity, Edinburgh, Robert Gordon, Smurfit.

All decent, but very different schools. Smurfit is the only one that's ranked in the FT, so it's probably the best choice for most applicants.

However, it will ultimately depend on what your background is and what your goals are. For instance, the oil and gas program at Robert Gordon is probably the best in the region for those with a background in energy and desire to stay in the field.

Scotland has a decent economy right now, but visas are easier to get in Ireland. Some trade-offs either way.

My goals are to go into either the Financial Services or the Management Consulting industries. I am not interested in the Energy industry. Is Smurfit the best choice considering my goals?

For Ireland, most likely. You'll probably want to look closely at Strathclyde if you want to end up in Scotland in these industries.

Hi
I am looking at MBA from Trinity or UCD Smurfit , I have 640 in GMAT , 5 yrs work experience with major MNC (Accenture). Do you guys think I am making the right choice here?

With my score I won't be in top 40 institutes in US and probably miss out on top 5 in Canada as well, top 3 in Singapore. Considering major tech companies(Amazaon, Accenture, Facebook, Microsoft) having their European headquarters in Ireland (taking advantage of corporate taxes) and the one year stay back after graduation. It seems Ireland is my best bet. I have a few questions here: -

1. Do I stand a decent chance to get a call from these colleges?
2. Job opportunities in Ireland for Indians upon graduation.
3. Should I consider Australia (MGSM)
4. With all my experience in IT and interest in Project management and Tech Consulting roles I believe Ireland will serve me best or should i Consider some lower ranked schools in California? if I can get an admit.

Thanks in Advance!!
