How good is it? The pre-experience degrees in Management from Europe usually have a better reputation because those programmes are considerably older.
Duke has a good brand name.But when I searched this programme I didnt get much information with respect to student feedbacks, career services and packages.
Let us know if you have found worthwhile information about it!

Duke's official website, fb page, samatdukemms.com and lukeatduke.com has everything you will need! Its a relatively new course, as new as the LBS MiM

ya its as new as the LBS MiM.But the LBS brand is stronger right? This course might really catch on in a few years' time because its shorter than most similar courses in Europe. But then I'd still prefer an admit from the likes of LBS,HEC,ESSEC,ESCP even they they are nearly 3 bloody years long :(

I am writing my essays. Have you taken the GMAT ?

If you have done your undergrad in English then you do not need to take the TOEFL. Speak to the adcom - Kendra/Catherine regarding this - Perhaps your req. can be waived off.

I am too planning to apply to some EU schools but I do not know French or German language and it will be difficult to network, survive post school and get a job in that region without high proficiency in French.

So lets see.

I plan to apply to some MFin programs other than MiM.
