Insead vs Yale [#permalink] New post 23 Mar 2011, 04:45
Hi,

I've a "big" problem.
I'm honored with being accepted to INSEAD and Yale Business School and I need some Input to clear my mind.

I'm 30yrs old; German; 5yrs work exp. I applied to 6 schools 5 american 1 european. I was accepted at the mentioned two; one status is still open and I was dismissed at three.
My problem is that I like the USA very much (at least I think so) As a German I know the European/French culture quite well and the bigger challenge would be going to the states. On the other side I would start in Singapour and finish in France. INSEAD is shorter and higher ranked. Yale has a bigger name. Although I think the name is more for it's Law-School. In the states I could improve my English in 22 months much better than in 10 months. The ties between my fellow students might also be stronger. If I study in the US I increase my chances of working there after the program - although I'm not shure where I want to work. I can imagine to in any developed country on the planet. I'm working in the production industry and have the idea changing to finance after graduation. PE or IB. But I can also imagine a start in the consumers industry or again in the production industry. This insecurity gives a point to a longer program. I'm sure that I will not change into Consulting.

What is your experience/ idea/ knowledge?
Where do you think are the highest chances
- to develop my personality
- get the best job offer (career aspects)
- from which school employ companies enganged in PE, IB like UBS, Deutsche Bank, ...
- get the biggest paycheck

Thanks for your valuable soughts!

I read somewhere that INSEAD is more for consulting and not finance. If you really want to do finance, especially in wallstreet, Yale would be better.

see whether u want to spend more time studying management. If yes, then go for Yale and if no, then go for insead. both B-schools are equally good and both have almost the same placement.

+1 to lagomez. I know it sounds simplistic, but if you want to work in Eurasia then go to INSEAD if you want to want in North America then head to Yale. Honestly nothing else matters. Their relative financial times rankings etc. mean nothing

I agree that if you want to work in US, Yale will have a better network post-mba. Also, if you want to switch your career to Finance, or if you are not sure, a 2-year mba will be a better choice.

Expert's post
Hi InsYal,

Congratulations on being accepted into both programs. They are both excellent business schools.

I agree with some of the earlier posts, and believe you should seriously consider where you would like to work post-graduation. If you are very interested in working on Wall Street for example, Yale would offer more opportunity given the proximity. I also recommend you speak to the career centers at each program to see which companies recruit from the schools.

I hope this was of help. Best of luck and I am sure you will make the right decision.

Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
