Europeean B Schools Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 07 Apr 2012, 22:58
Hello,

I am an Indian guy (25.5 years)with close to 3.5 years experience till date. I have experience in the marketing field and also running my own successful venture for a couple of years. Excellent acads till date, low extra curriculars. GMAT - 640 mostly due to a bad verbal day, but got a 8.5 on ielts. I would love to work in Europe for 2-3 of years after graduation and then move back to entrepreneurship...maybe kickstart a new venture.

I am confused between the following:

1. Should I go for Masters or MBA- I have an interview shortlist for the Grand Ecoles ALL schools and am applying for MBA as well at some.
2. Already accepted for the WHU program, however, it being last minute I was unable to get the visa processed for their Apr 2012 start date
3. Already applied to EMLYON and HHL Leipzig. The target schools I have in mind are Mannheim, ESMT, RSM Erasmus
4. I am looking for good networking and decent scholarships if available, at the schools I will apply
5. Is it worth applying to the UK schools, with the visa restrictions effective from Apr 2012.

Considering my profile and career goals, which school might be ideal for me?

Thanks
Salil

Yes, it can feel like an absolute maze out there because of the abundance and diversity of programs! First, if you really believe that you can easily perform better on the GMAT, then by all means take it again: there is no reason that this score should represent you if you really feel it does not. Second, I find that the best tools to narrow down the list of programs include: 1) employment statistics: are graduating students securing jobs in the countries, industries, and positions that you are seeking? and 2) current and recently graduating students: are they describing the kind of learning environment that you are seeking? Other things to consider: 2-year programs offer internship opportunities that help ease career changes, while 1-year programs mean incurring less debt. The best of both worlds: a strong 1-year program with internship opportunities or projects for companies during the program.

Yes, the UK visa restrictions are a concern but if you are open to exploring other European countries, then I do still believe that the top UK programs will provide great career boosts - though perhaps not within the UK.

A lot of this answer depends on whether you would like to work in Europe or Asia after graduating. If you would like to be in Asia, then the European programs are going to be less helpful in building your network and gaining internship experience and vice versa. I am unfamiliar with several of the programs in your list, so I cannot guide you in the decision besides to advise you to refer to employment statistics regarding country/region of employment and salary - and to make sure that you fit in on campus and in the class personally before you commit to attend.
