Hi Experts,

i have come across below business schools during my surf. Please post your general thoughts related to quality of international MBA exposure and kind of oppurtunities for Indian students. How about the job oppurtunies in general ?

Not familiar with any of the schools first hand, but if you are shooting for a smaller school (maybe strong locally but unknown globally), I would recommend you find a school that has strong partners or affiliates so that you can mention/use that name when outside of the local region.

The only example I know of in Greece, is Carnegie Mellon-affiliated program in Athens.

It really depends on the location as well as the focus of the program. The Indian Institute of Management is a perfect example in case of India. Excellent institutions with great brand value through out India but less known outside India.

Then there are programs which are good for specific areas, for example, Babson in USA for Enterpreneurship. Again not well known globally.

Your best bet is to network with Belgian and Greek citizens (if you are not a localite) and assess their value in local markets. Also try to talk to alumni from these institutions. Or speak with people in your post-MBA target career/companies. LinkedIn could be used effectively in making such connections.

CITY College in Thessaloniki. Strong locally and it is affiliated with Sheffield University, UK as its International Faculty if you want to refer to something internationally known when outside of the region.
