ESSEC MS Financial Techniques vs St.Gallen MBA [#permalink]
11 Jun 2012, 09:31
Hi. I'm a software engineer from a Southeast Asian country wanting to switch career into finance (asset management or investment banking, preferably). I would prefer to work in Western Europe but Singapore or HK would be OK.
I got accepted into ESSEC's Advanced Master in Financial Techniques (Asia track) and got a partial scholarship. My application into St. Gallen's MBA is still being processed but I may have a decent shot at the scholarship. Assuming that I get the St Gallen scholarship as well, which program would be better?
ESSEC pros: ranked #3 by FT very quantitative very international (1 term in France, 1 term in SG, study trips to London & HK)
ESSEC cons: targeted for Asia, tougher to get a job in Europe Advanced Master degree is not as widely known as an MBA
St Gallen pros: Best chance to get a job in Switzerland Prestigious in the German-speaking world (strongest economy in Europe) learn some German language

Hi guys Is it possible to finish the Essec without learning French? I know it is impossible to find a job in France without french. To tell the truth, what appeals to me is studyidng in singapore and i am mostly interested in working there after graduation. (You think its a good idea?) Could you please share, if you know, how many graduates get a good job in singapore and how possible is that to find a job there after graduating from advanced master in financial techniques? Thanks
