ESADE - Spain [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2007, 07:35
I'd like to hear from anyone who has first-hand perspective of this school. I hear that it is quite different from IESE-Spain.

This is a great idea Pretorian! I am applying to INSEAD only and I would have liked to have a dedicated thread for this school (or for other European school) when preparing my application!

I must say..GMAT club has been extremely useful anyway!

Like others, I agree :)... Great Idea and a kind of deeper recognition that there are not only US-Bschools but also European ones :)

I'm glad to see it :)

For Spain, I understand the general ranking is:

IESE
ESADE
IE

Based on reputation, strength of curriculum, etc.

Kwam,

maybe I was a bit too drastic with IE. Actually, it is a good business school and it's not a bad option; but if I were a foreign student there are two much better options in Spain than IE.

Good luck.

My personal ranking (the only one that should matter to me, isn't it? :-D )

INSEAD - applying; it's exactly what I'm looking for, I'll keep on applying until the get tired and decide to accept me! :-D

LBS - too IB oriented for me

IESE - improving its reputation but still not as international as INSEAD

IMD - apparently the look for older applicants than I am

My rankings

1. LBS - for excellent prog, recruitment, location and reputation
2. Insead - very much like LBS. just that recruitment record could have been better for international students.
3. IMD / IESE - very international, good reputation, good program.
4. Oxford - best one year program.
5. HEC - again you need to know french for better chances of recruitment. Also takes very young people.
6. Cambridge - bit Orthodox. But good program and location.

No idea about:
IE
ESADE

My rankings:

1- LBS and INSEAD
2- IMD and IESE (to pos-MBA work in Spain this goes 1st)
3- All of the rest...

Of course this is a superficial ranking, but it's the way I see these them.

Hi Guys,

How about Australian Business schools. The two top schools are MBS and AGSM and they are very popular in Australia at least. Do you have any idea if they have any international recognition or ranking?

Don't know about Australian Schools. Does anyone know?

For those who want to work in finance and in Europe after graduation, would it be LBS, Oxford and Insead (no particular order) the best schools or are there others also?

I know some people working in London who graduated from US schools, is it "easy" to work in London after an US school?
