MBA

i really need your help, i am lebanese, and i got my bachelor degree in finance from CNAM paris, i have one and a half year of internship experience and a year and a half as an employee, both are in the HR department.

i am planning to immigrate to europe to work and study, since there is better opportunities there.

i've been approved to ALBA MBA program (greece) for a scholarship (it's a one year program) i will be quitting job and going to greece.

my quest is, is it worth it? i mean is ALBA a well recognized university in Europe, since i am planning to not go back to lebanon, study and then find a job in europe, does the ALBA program give me chances to get recruited in france, germany, greece, belguim, switzerland... (i feel that i have no chance being recruited in greece, because the economical crisis).

so as a resume, adding ALBA MBA program to my CV, will help me find a job, or studying in lebanon will be much better? or just going to UK or France and do my mba ?

Thank you so much for your time.

Studying in Greece won't help you to find work in France or Germany. Do you speak French or German?

You'll be better off clarifying your career goal and then picking the courses that are best placed for that goal.

I think you need to do a little more research. Europe isn't a single job market. Take a look at http://www.find-mba.com/board/34713

Yes, you'll have to narrow down your career goals.

In the end, you pay for what you get. An MBA from an accredited and ranked school like HEC will provide the best value, and give you the highest chances of getting a job after graduation.

Next would be a ranked masters in management program (from a school like INSEAD, IMD, Rotterdam, etc.) These are generally pre-experience programs, so the cohorts will not be as dynamic as those in an accredited MBA program.

The MBA from Alba is accredited by AMBA, but the job market in Greece isn't great, so you'll have to take that into consideration.

Germany might be a good place to do an MBA, but you'll have to learn German, and that usually takes more time than you have in one or two years in an MBA program. Read this:

And look at the accredited schools: ESMT, Mannheim, HHL Leipzig, etc.

French is a minority language in Belgium and Switzerland. Your opportunities are limited without the main business language.
