Cranfield (UK) vs HEC Paris [#permalink]

I am new to forum but was following it for a long time.

I would like to hear your thoughts about my situation.

I am 30+ working in IT field (over 5 years), holding an MS degree in engineering and living in a EU candidate country.

Although I would like to get an MBA degree, currently due to economic conditions it is not possible.

However, I got a local scholarship for MS study in Europe.

I got acceptance from two schools : Crandfield - MS in Finance and Management, and HEC Paris - MS in strategic management.

My main objective is to work as a management consultant in an international company after the MS.

My own thoughts about these schools are:

-Although HEC Paris is a higher than Cranfield in rankings, job opportunities in UK is much more pleasurable than in France.

-Strategic management is given just a one term course in some MBA programs, thus does it really worth to obtain an MS degree in it, I am not sure.

-Since Cranfield gives also finance related courses I believe that it is more that just management. Thus, it is may be more suitable for future career.

-On the other hand HEC is well known across EU, and it may be the case that after HEC I may find jobs in UK and Germany.

These are all that I can say know, and I am not sure which program is superior than other. Considering the current economic conditions of EU and country policies about foreign workers, can you please share your opinions about these schools?
