HEC, Paris v/s RSM, Rotterdam [#permalink] New post 20 Mar 2006, 06:43
Hi Everyone,

Got an admit from RSM and HEC. Hence currently am faced with the decision problem between the 2 schools below . Some facts below

HEC, Paris - Admit with a schol of 10k euros. have to confirm latest by 27th March with a confirmation payment of 4500 euros

RSM (Rotterdam School of Management), Rotterdam, Holland - Admit with no scholarship as of now. Still need to apply for scholarship. have to confirm latest by 15th April with a confirmation payment of 5500 euros

GMAT - 640
Work Ex - 2yrs and 8 months till date in a software firm. Working on Peoplesoft ERP
International Exposure of 1.5 yrs in Germany on a work assignment.
Know Basic level of German language.
Level of French currently - 0

Post MBA - would like to work in a consulting firm - preferably IT consulting otherwise am open to other options in Consulting. Wud not mind working in Europe or US if i get a job.

My biggest worry - Job scene after MBA from either of the schools. So far as per what i have heard RSM has better placements. RSM is also in the list of schools for HSMP - Highly Skilled Migration Program for the UK. HEC currently is not on this list and is supposedly strong in France only. Whats more renowned internationally and has a better brand value?

Cud someone throw more light on the job scene for Indians in Europe after an MBA from these schools? as in how difficult is it to get a job and work permit compared to a guy from EU?

waiting for some inputs/suggestions from everyone.

Thanks a lot.

SSG,

I can't speak to the job scene in Europe for Indian graduates of HEC and Rotterdam, but in terms of "brand" and international reputation I don't think there's any question that HEC is the much stronger program. Data point: The Economist magazine's 2005 rankings where HEC is No. 18 internationally and Rotterdam is No. 88.

Good luck!
