Hi MBA Prep School,
Can you provide info on European MBA?

Look forward to hear from you.


Hi,
I thought it'd be helpful for you if I come up with some specific questions on European MBA...

So, my questions are :
1.Most of them are 1 year program as you know...so,should one consider these for career change (re: Industry change not job function change)?

2.Could you please let me know like INSEAD & IE whether LBS,Said & Judge also have rolling admissions and two intakes (for example, one in September 2014 and other in January 2015 for INSEAD)...?

3. LBS,INSEAD are top ones but in global b-school rankings (FT) b-schools like IE,Said & Judge are placed ahead of many top 20 US schools like Ross,Darden,Anderson (for IE only),McCombs...How do you see that for an International applicant & career changer?

4..For these European schools, is it always better to apply in R1 (if some of them don't have rolling admissions and/or two intakes) rather than in R2 like US schools...?

Would really appreciate some deep insights from you on these.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Hello Debayan,
Thanks for your patience as we get up and running in this new forum space. Answers to your questions:
1) 1 year programs are not ideal for career changers because the summer internship is a great opportunity for employers to take a risk on someone without previous industry experience. However, the top European programs might be a great bridge into consulting or banking from industry if you emerge as a top-ranked student.
2) I think it best to refer you to the website of these programs for admissions policies. I don't like to quote school policies in forums because as soon as I do they are sure to change. :)
3) Your school targeting should factor in where you want to work post-MBA. If you want to work in the US the US schools are ideal. Equally, the top international schools will position you best for jobs in the region of that program.
4) We are big fans of applying in Round 1. Always aim for Round 1 assuming you can achieve the same quality in your applications in time.

All the best!
Tyler

Hi Tyler,
Thanks for your reply...!
Few quick thoughts on the follow-up:

1.Recently I heard that Internationals(especially Asians/Indians) may find it difficult to secure employment in the UK post-MBA as the UK is currently in the process of tightening it’s working visa restrictions...So, should Indian applicants with career change (re both industry-RE & job function change) mindset be refrain from applying to LBS or any other UK schools like Said/Judge considering as a top-ranked student profile from the current industry?

2.Honestly I don't have any rigid preference between Europe/US...Euro school was in my top choice because of their 1 year less expensive and quick ROI-driven program.But as I see the constraint, I've been thinking of focusing on the other Euro (re outside UK) schools and US programs

3. In the LT-will come back to India to start my own venture...But immediately after MBA, I'd like to see myself working in that country where i'll earn the degree...It's required for more diverse global experience and of course as far ROI is concerned (this is something Internationals need to consider very seriously I think..right?)...So in that line, UK seems to be not a great option at all with all their new rules & regulations.

4. Is R2 a big NO for Internationals/Indians...? To what extent chances of getting in come down in R2 as compared to R1 for this oversubscribed pool?

I'd much appreciate your detail and straight forward feedback on these!

1. Yes, I have heard that as well. Very wise of you to pay attention to these immigration trends. Finding a job is difficult enough in the current economy so added hurdles of immigration rules can make it simply impossible.
2. Keep in mind that all countries have work rule hurdles for foreign MBA graduates to one degree or another. The US is in the midst of immigration reform but the impact on MBA graduates hasn't sorted itself out. I have to admit that these immigration issues are not something that we have expertise in. Our expertise is in helping applicant earn acceptance letters.
3. Agreed.
4. I wouldn't go so far as to say it is a big NO. Rather that you'll gain a slight edge by applying in Round 1. In an over-represented pool every edge counts.
