Got the call yesterday. Scheduled the interview for the 25th - three days after my ESADE interview.
I'm trying to decide between ESADE and IE right now. Would you share your thoughts on the schools?
He thefinancelady. Sorry for the late response. I received an admit from IE yesterday but am yet to hear anything from ESADE. I also am finding it extremely difficult to select between the two especially considering my short and long term career goals. Both colleges have large alumni bases and official chapters in the UAE and both are very focused on entrepreneurship.
IE seems to score better in most of the rankings except The Economist's which has ESADE higher. Regarding duration, I was initially looking at one year programs only. However, people have stressed a lot about the importance of an internship and the exchange school program; I am not sure if 13 months at IE will be feasible for doing both. Also I was told by my IE interviewer that internships are NOT usually arranged by the career center. My ESADE interviewer did mention that IE is not as recognized in Spain as ESADE or IESE but that is probably because it is the newest of the three schools. These are probably my only concerns about IE.
It would be foolish of me to comment about ESADE at this stage without having received a decision.
Personally I think my ESADE interview went better than IE's and I was not very confident of landing this admit. But I believe my essay, video and powerpoint presentations were strong (I had spent A LOT OF TIME on them).
I am now discussing with my business associates, family and friends and will probably take a call end of this month. Hopefully ESADE will respond by then as well. Please let me know your views.
