First, thanks for seeing if there was anything offered at Dauphine...I heard someone saying they do. But apparently not...

To answer to your questions:
Europe would be still within the reach, but preferably UK.
US is a little too far for us now. I say us, because I am married to a French, and she likes to be near her family...at least for now:)

To learn Japanese/...hmmm:
Depends on how good your level is!
If you are able to write Hiragana, Katakana, and at least 100 chinese charators, then yes, you could start taking some lessons.
Othewise, I dont see the point in taking classes, coz you'll have to memorise a lot.
If you have cleared the above, perhaps taking private lessons would be effective. Or otherwise, "Kumon Juku", traditionally for school kids, but very very good for all ages!!
If you are in the advanced level, perhaps you could attend one of the Keio Japanese language classes....you'll encouter many chinese students who already know 5000 chinese charactors :) LOL

Basically, what do you know at this level?

Send me your e-mail by PM, and I'll send you MP3 files of Japanese audio lessons. They are really good!

ttyl,

Hi Zamzim

As promised, I am back with information about masters, mainly finance, taught in english in France and Europe.

I did not go deeper in my research so maybe some of them are out of the topic.

I let you see by yourself. Good luck !

http://www.european-master.com (from 3 european business school)

http://www.lse.ac.uk/ (London School of Economics)

I haven't found anything about the diploma taught in english from Dauphine.

Thanks very much!!!

Will look at them carefully after the GMAT! >> 13th November!!!!!
(save their links)

By the way, how is it going with your gmat studies?
I'm struggling with the verbal...it's been two weeks since i started studying, so perhaps i'll have to study more before seeing substantial results.

Oh yeah, I saw one of your posts concerning University grades for Hitotsubashi...(to Hyort)
In my opinion, Japanese Universities dont look at the GPA!! really!!
The Japanese, are more into "The EXAMS" = JUKEN!!

To give you an example, I didnt study for mid terms, finals at all!!!
My grades were 3.2/5.0 not good at all.

Instead, I spent my time on the JFSAT (Japanese version of the US SAT), eight subjects. Scored as the top five percent in Japan, 2001. 95th percentile. And succeed on the unversity exam as well.

The GPA measure is only for people who were on the boarder!!! This fact is very famous in japan.
So, focussing on the essays, work experience, recommendation letters, and the GMAT would be better!

By the way, how is your verbal score?
Have you tried the GMATprep? I tried it twice!
1st time: V = 27
2nd time: V = 28...sigh

So, here I am trying to look for inspiration upon how to improve my score!

Hello Zamzim

Hope you can find interesting diplomas and schools with the links I sent you :)

Regarding GMAT, I am studying quant for the moment. Since I left school, I have to wake up my brain quickly to be ready for December 18th!!

I should start Verbal from this weekend then I will mix lots of questions and GMAT tests.

I tried GMATPrep once. Before opening the OG, I was curious to know how GMAT looked like and I did one. It was kind of shock for me !

I had 390 :!: :!: :!:
Q : 22 were incorrect
V : 23 were incorrect

Verbal was difficult for me too. Very tricky.

Now, before taking another GMATPrep, I want to study more and more in order to get a better score (should not be so hard when I see my result :oops: )

When I read your point of view about grades and Japanese universities, i got very surprised ! Most of business schools care about academic background.

I hope what you said works with Hitotsubashi because I had average scores during my studies at Law university. :?

I can also tell you YOU are smart ! Scored as the top five percent in Japan, 2001. 95th percentile. Congratulations !

If you want to improve your level in verbal, just practice practice practice practice practice........It is the best way to succeed.

I advise you to download 1000 RC, SC you can find on GMATclub.
