roc_vayu,

As an indication of reputation, Empresa is generally ranked ahead of HEC Paris, but not by much. Which school you pick will depend on what you need from business school, as in what your goals and learning needs are. Where you want to work post-MBA would also be a factor, since HEC Paris would obviously help you more with French employers than Empresa would.

Good luck,

Dear Paul,
Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I noticed that most of the rankings hold IE ahead of HEC. But, I think the average salary offered to HEC MBAs is quite high when compared to that of IE MBAs.
Moreover, though my aspirations are well fed by IE MBA( I want to further my career in Transportation and Logistics, for which IE has a very good dual degree program with MLOG(MIT's arm), IE MBA is quite expensive.

These are some of the reasons why I am not able to pick between these 2 schools.

As for the location, I am totally open for it. Once I decide which college to take, I will start learning the respective local language :).

Thanks and Regards
~Roc

Roc,

Not an easy choice. The salary differential would understandably be a major consideration.

Good luck,
