LSE vs LBS vs HEC Paris vs St Gallen for strategy consulting [#permalink] New post 31 May 2013, 06:17
Hi guys,

this is my first ever post here, so far I was just reading some threads but I came to a situation where I got accepted at all these reputable schools and have to decide where I should be heading to in September 2013.

So the programmes are as follows:
1. LSE MSc Management and Strategy
2. LBS Masters in Management
3. HEC Paris MSc Strategic Management
4. St Gallen MA Strategy and International Management

Basically, I am interested in a career in strategy consulting. I speak fluent English and am trying to improve my German, which used to be fluent a couple of years ago. I don't speak French.
My aim is to land at a job in London, Germany (Munich) or in Switzerland. I come from Continental Europe (not British, French, German or Swiss).

I am not interested in listening to how LSE and LBS are recognised worldwide. I only care about finding a job at a tier 1 or tier 2 strategy consultancy in the aforementioned countries.
So far, my firm choice is HEC Paris because it offers the most intensive and relevant curriculum and about half of its students head to strategy consulting (not sure how many actually find a job outside France though). Second choice would be LBS, but then it comes at a very big price: 26000 pounds which is a lot. If LBS is superior to HEC Paris for my career goals, then if we consider the financial matter would HEC Paris go first as it costs only 18k but in Euros? To summarise, if we are looking at the return of investment, is HEC Paris a better choice?

On the other hand, I believe that St Gallen is the safest choice as I heard that people in Germany are crazy about the uni and its SIM programme. I am not sure about a job in London though. Having in mind its tuition fee which is ridiculously low compared to the other schools it might also be a good option.

I believe that with LBS on the list, there is no discussion for LSE...

I would really appreciate if you could provide me with some relevant answers as soon as possible as I need to answer to these universities quite soon.
