Exec programs: Darden vs Oxford vs Cambridge [#permalink] New post 27 May 2013, 22:01
Hi All,

I got in to Darden, Oxford and Cambridge exce MBA programs and now I'm contemplating which program to choose.

Here are some of my thoughts....

1) It's very appealing to me that Darden uses the case study method approach, while Oxbrige (at least from my point of view) tend to be more academicly focused.
At the same time I keep in mind that being from Europe, there is an undeniable charm and a "wow" affect related to Oxbridge.
2) Darden is a global program vs Oxbridge has 2 international modules
3) I've got a scholarship from Darden. Oxford doesn't give scholarships. And I'm still waiting for Cambridge. Having said that, even with the Darden scholarship, Oxbridge and Cambridge will be cheaper. But what is the value of awarded scholarship in the resume?
4) I'm not sure how helpful career centers are in all the schools

My husband and I may move in a short term period and of course I'd like to have a more internationally recognized brand .Anyway, I would appretiate to hear your thoughts on it.

Thanks .

Where are you based? The Oxbridge brand is VERY valued in plenty of countries.

I'm currently based in Russia. You are right, Oxbridge brand is quite powerful no matter where you are. Though, I find the case method study more effective and applicable in business decisions.

I guess it depends on the person. I personally find the optimal somewhere in between 100% cases and 100% lectures.
