BOOKMARKED
Hi All,

So I applied to too many schools cz I wanted to be sure I got in somewhere

I have been offered admission into the following, in no particular order:

1. ESCP - Grande Ecole
2. EMLyon - Grande Ecole
3. EDHEC - MSc Finance
4. IE - MSc Finance and Masters in International Management
5. ESADE - Masters in International Management
6. Grenoble - Masters in International Business


I am completely and thoroughly confused at the moment.
Any information, opinions and suggestions are very welcome.

Thank you

Hey.. congrats on getting an admit to all these schools.. Its actually difficult to say which school is the best for you coz there is no info about ur background, or ur goals. On a very general note, i'd suggest ESCP and Em Lyon basing my suggestion solely on rankings. Both these schools are really good, and you could never really go wrong in choosing them. The prog, the internships, brand name, clubs, ... are all good. On the other hand, EDHEC has something called the risk management chair (if i'm not mistaken), which is very interesting, and no other school has it (I might be wrong here too). so, if you want to get into corporate fraud and areas like that, I would suggest EDHEC. so, again, it depends on what you want to do after finishing the course. It might help to picture yourself in a particular field to make a better decision. so, choose a school that offers you subjects and clubs that you like. I'm sure u'l make the right choice :)
hope this helps..

Hey Manubharath

Thank you for the advice

For now I think my decision is made.
I'm headed to IE for Masters in Finance
I am interested in FInance
And IE has a great international reputation as well as a really good finance faculty.

Well most of the colleges you got admission into are really great! Congrats for that (albeit late)
The top 2 colleges i would consider taking admission into would be ESCP and IE.
ESCP has a very strong and popular MiM program, & is much more respected than the other french schools you mentioned and IE has really good global recognition, so they both are excellent programs to choose.
Also one thing to note is ESCP is a 2 year program while the one for IE runs for around 10 months.
All the colleges mentioned have excellent clubs, chairs and courses, but based on FT rankings and future prospects IE and ESCP are the obvious choices.
One advantage IE has is that it is a very young and international school,and is climbing ranks fast.It also has a strong entrepreneurial background. But on the other hand the economic state of Spain may limit your job alternatives.
For ESCP, the advantage is that it is very well respected in France and UK, and has a strong international student base. Also it has 5 campuses all over europe, so you can take advantage of that and study on up to 3 countries while completing your course. But to truly take advantage of the opportunities provided by ESCP a knowledge of French is must. You can get by without knowing perfect french too, but it makes your job a but harder.

Hi Abhyank,

Thanks for writing. Your response is quite relevant except it's about 3 years too late.

I graduated from IE 2 years ago and currently work in Madrid ?

Cheers!

I see!! ?

I had an absolutely amazing year and continue to have a pretty great time.

I'd just like to add, that the economic climate of Spain has improved drastically in the last 2 years. It's no longer in a recession and is the fastest growing economy in Europe. Also, the work permit laws have changed. So with a bit of luck and effort and if one speaks decent Spanish, one can land a job here.
Alternatively, it's much easier to land a job in France without speaking French, but the French are just no fun at all!

Haha i agree to the French part ;)
Also thanks for the update on the Spanish economy scene.
Guess that makes IE a really good place to go then.
