Yes, agree

however, here in Spain IE is the first option for a lot of people...

regading IESE, I'd never apply there, but I have to say that the chances post-MBA are amazing. THe reason is that the chances usually come from companies whose CEOs are close to that relogious movement...

Definitely, it's not my business...

Cheers


As far as I know IESE and IE are very different schools, hence comparison of two should not be emotional but rationale and would depend on individual's own priorities from an MBA! Also the criticism of IESE on it's association to a religious movement is the most illogical argument, I had ever heard! It's something like a thirsty man telling me that he will not drink water from my cup for I am from a different religion. Funnily enough that makes me wonder who is more religiously conscious in this case! All I can say that such comments whenever I have heard just gives me an impression of a clouded mind!

Well here is what I can tell you on your journey to finding a right place to do an MBA based on my own experiences! Europe can prove to be as costly as US or any other option you would be thinking of doing an MBA! Also I would not suggest you to think of going for an MBA based on such an assumption!

Being from India, we both know Indian MBA is far way cheaper than any other region's MBA. Also your post MBA goal is to work in IT industry in India! The question then you must be asking yourself why in first place you want to look at options outside India! And when you compare such options in Europe, you should ask yourself which colleges of India/US you are using as benchmark to make your judgement! Just 1.5 years in the place from where you do MBA sounds more like that your short term goal trying to over ride your long term plans! Introspect more on reasons of doing an MBA and you will have your answers! All the best in your journey!

What are your opinions on MBA programs in Scandinavia? I have over 6 years professional experience so I am open minded to EMBA or MBA. I would prefer EMBA as I don't want to take a year off from work. But why I don't see any posts here on SSE? It is a leading business school in Scandinavia and well known in Europe. Your thoughts?

What is the major difference between an MBA and an MSM? I am considering going to grad school and was looking into MBA programs. However I can across the MSM program and that sounds like it might be interesting. What is really the difference? Does an MSM hold the same weight as an MBA when looking for a job? I am not interesting in continuing on to my PhD.

Please suggest me hw is its repu in UK and in front of recruiters in UK. As it is at 93rd position in FT rankings in 2011, so bit confused whether I should join it. Also, job scenarios post MBA in UK does nt look much good.

Guys, please suggest me whether I should go for it or should wait for one more year to get better college.
My profile:
Education-B.Tech and M.Tech with distinction from a very reputed engg college in India.
Work exp- 3 yr in IT sector.

Hi, Leeds is a relatively good uni here in the UK, but I feel as though a little extra work experience and a slightly improved GMAT could get you into a much better ranked course.

A couple of things I noticed from looking around on the Leeds website.

Cost - This is quite a cheap course, bear in mind that if you do get into a better course even in the EU you will pay substantially more. Manchester (FT rank 29) is in excess of £35,000 and this may not be a cost you want to bear at this time.

Class size - With a class size of 40 - 50 this is a tiny,tiny program. The networking possibilities may be limited with such a small group.

Average age - 29. This is quite an old class which suggests to me that it will be made up primarily of people from the local area looking to further their careers without spending a whole lot of money (this is just a guess so take it with a pinch of salt, but it seems to be that type of program). Also, your work experience suggests that you would be young for the class which may make the social experience different.

To be honest if you are asking whether you should wait an extra year or not then it seems to me that you haven't got a solid answer to the why now? question that is an integral part of your application. I think you should take stock and really try to answer that question in your own mind. If you decide that it's an absolute must to do an MBA this year then take the Leeds offer. If you find it difficult to answer and you can't come up with a really strong answer then it seems that you wont lose anything by waiting and re-applying. If you did choose to re-apply then you could take on some extra curricular activities and leadership positions and really put forward a great application next year and work your way right up the rankings.

Sorry if that seems like no answer. Just some things to think about.

Well almost all the European MBA programs outside of LBS are one-year programs. So he has the pick of the lot.
