Yupp.....I can help you a bit..... the course started in 2012 .......but that was only the MBA with internship that started in 2012, the school has been running for almost 20 years with only students having atleast 15 years of experience. But now the new MBA program that was introduced in 2012 has its own features of work permit and internship stuff.... Since the college has been in existence for a long period the alumina is very strong with a lot of people at the top level. Every year, we have tours arranged and we only pay a small amount to enjoy the trip, all the remaining money is sponsored from the alumina.
As I mentioned, since the mba with internship started in 2012..i wouldn't be able to give you the salary stats but after the internship recruitment, what I could gather from the other students and companies were they will definitely give you a good position after your mba and also atleast 3-5 times of your internship salary.....Also facilities that are offered to employees are very high in luxembourg....

Job opportunity - definitely there is nothing to worry about the job.....bcoz there are a lot of job opportunities - speak good english, showcase your capabilities in the interview. Average no: of job offers for students were a little more than 2. There is nobody in my batch without a job, if you are a bad student nobody can help you...
Economically this country is one of the strongest countries in the world and I don't see a downfall till the next 5-7 years....
Most of the students from the "ranking wise top schools" come to work in luxembourg because they don't get a job in their respective european countries and without a work permit it is very difficult to be sponsored by a company to work in a european company... Since we get a work permit in luxembourg, it definitively hedges your risk to a great extend....

I am a student from the first batch...I calculated my risks and took a chance to come here...I definitely think my research for B-schools paid off.... Still if you see, there is no marketing done from the school. This forum is written by a student personally.....I don't have any benefit from this, so if I am taking my effort to do it, definitely I would be happy...

Happy New Year!!!!

Hi ,

Having read through all the posts, I would like to compliment you for being of great help in addressing concerns of
prospective students. I have applied for the MBA with Internship at SHU,Luxembourg & in the process of submitting
the recommendations etc.

I have completed 4 yrs of Work experience in Banking & Insurance domain.Currently, I am part of the Wealth Management team
for First Gulf Bank in Dubai,UAE.

I would like to understand how would the job opportunities be for Private Banking & Wealth Management ?
These are the primary areas of interest for me.

To supplement the funding for my education, would finding a part time job in Finance firms be feasible ?

Looking forward to your reply,

thanks,
Aditya

Why would you want to do a part time job when you can get a fulltime job for your internship of 9 months. There are lot of banks that focus on Private Wealth management such as KBL, BIL, Credit Agricole, BNP......so your focus should be to make as many good contacts during your 9 months fulltime internship and you can get it extended if you do a good job. There is no question of part-time job. If you are asking me whether you can do a part time job after your 9-5 work and 6.30-9.30 class in a day , I cant find time after that..... I think the internship money is sufficient for you to live and enjoy....Internships are not part time....they are fulltime from 9-5....I can extend my internship but since I want to take an exchange to the US, I am not planning to.... If things are not clear...just take a look at the previous posts again....there is 2 pages on information...:)

Hi ,
Thanks for your reply.

I was asking about the initial 16 months of the MBA, what is the schedule of lectures ?
Is there a scope to work - part time during the initial 16 months as the internship is applicable in the last 9 months.

When is the option for US exchange exercised by students ?

Regards,
Aditya

Hi Aditya,

You did not read the previous posts. Ok i am copying the same content from the previous post.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Yes , fulltime students will be following the schedule of work in the morning say from 9-5 and classes in the evening 6.30-9.30.
Time:- Pre-requisite courses starts in july Year 1 and runs till Sep. Year 1.
The real MBA starts from Sep Year1 -Dec Year 2. The internship period starts based on the company. But mostly by November/December Year 1.

From November-July, you will be working in the morning and classes will be held in the evening. Some individuals/companies want students to stay from Nov-Nov for the internship, but it really depends.
We also get quite a good amount of leaves from the government from work since we are working and studying.

And so if you don't require a pre-requisite course, you actually finish your MBA in 16 months with a 9-12 months internship. So the ROI is one among the highest.

2. I hope now you understood our schedule, so as soon as the internship finishes in july, we have an asia trip for 2 weeks, to visit some of our alumni, companies, countries. So it would be a wonderful trip.

And from September, you can study in the US for a semester and sometimes people want to study some more additional subjects from the US campus and so they stay for a little longer.`
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So during the 16 months mba, you will have classes in the evening from 6.30 - 9.30 and you will be working in the morning fulltime. So my schedule is I work from 9-5 and 6.30-9.30 in the evening, the same day, I have my classes. Sat and Sun are holidays, so you can enjoy, take rest, finish assignments and stuff....

I am sure, you can find most of the answers in this post, but I will be always ready to help. I don't want to repeat and write the same stuff...:)

About the US exchange, it depends on the courses that are scheduled there during the period of your visit. The professors that are available for teaching, if you want to attend their classes. So it depends on your requirements and the schedule of classes. You can also go to enhance your contacts, the period of stay in US campus is totally on you. You can take a weeks course to 3-4 months.

Thanks,
:)

I heard that there are so many applicants for this year, but they are not taking in much people. They are carefully screening people and are accepting very few people. But whoever feels to apply, I think they can still. Just be sure to have some uniqueness in ur profile.

Good to hear that. Definitely SHU is a much better than many of the ranked schools in Europe. The kind of response I received from them is very friendly and helpful.

Hello All,

First off, thank you for all of the useful information provided above. I was recently accepted into the SHU Luxembourg MBA program and all of this info is sure to help give me a good idea of what to expect upon arrival in Luxembourg at the end of August. I am a U.S. citizen who just recently graduated from undergraduate coursework. One of my biggest concerns is finding reasonable housing accommodations. At this point, I am planning on staying in a local hostel suggested by the school when I first arrive and beginning my apartment search immediately. If anyone has any ideas on specific areas of the city in which are close enough to campus, friendly for a younger crowd and reasonably priced, I am open to suggestions. I also have been a bit concerned as to the internship hiring process. I am sure, as one of the younger students in the program, I will not have as much relevant work experience as most of my fellow classmates. What should I expect in terms of the interviewing process, and would you deem it likely that I will be able to secure an internship to start in November? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and I look forward to meeting some of you in the Fall.

Best Regards,

-Sean

Hi Sean,

So first things first: Luxembourg is small, so if you can look for a place which is close to the city, it would be the best option. Now, what you can do is, when you search for an apartment, go to the google maps and search for Gare central, Luxembourg (which is the one of the main centres of luxembourg) - anything 5-10 mins from here should be easily accessible. (places like Bonnevoie, Belair). The other search you can do is city centre ( which is also close to Gare central and another main centre. City centre and Gare are about 1.5kms apart.). Now if you want to stay just next to the happening place - go for Clausen (or called Grund and something close to this shuld do the trick ). Don't pay any money or come to any agreements before hand. Look for places and when you come you can see if you like the place or not. I hope it helps.

Internship, your profile might have been good and also the school will arrange some interviews for you. But the basic challenge you might face is since you don't have a prior experience it might be difficult to look for something very specific. For example: if you are looking out for sales and marketing in an energy company or working in alternative fund investments...etc....would be difficult, we can try for broad positions during internship and during the course of time change it and work accordingly. We wouldn't have the bargaining power. You will definitely secure a good internship and the school has a very powerful board, so they will try to get you through internships for your area of interest.

So everything should be good and in-case you want to talk to me directly, we can arrange a skype session one day.

Hey Guys,

I have a plan to study MBA at Sacred Heart University next year. Could anyone guide me regarding college structure and job opportunity after course?

As I heard but not sure that they are not providing any campus selection process after course. I am concern about job opportunity. As France,Germany and Belgium also neighbouring countries , can I apply jobs there?

Seems to me, this one is very good opportunity but little bit confuse regarding post opportunity.

Thanks for your reply.

I think I have send you my email. We can arrange a skype session and you can shoot all your queries. If you read the blog properly, both the pages you should get a lot of your questions answered and if you still have some, we can discuss.
