MIT Sloan vs Kellogg vs Columbia/LBS vs Oxford [#permalink] New post 28 Dec 2011, 08:40
I need serious advice here.

Lets assume I can get into Kellogg, MIT Sloan, Oxford and Columbia/London Business School EMBA programs and I plan to migrate from West Africa to the US or UK in say 2 years time or after my EMBA, which school would be the safest choice.

Columbia/London Business looks like the best choice given my plan but does it mean MIT or Kellogg are only safe best for a career in the US and not UK or Europe?

Lets assume I did an Oxford EMBA given that Oxford as an institution enjoys instant brand recog worldwide, will its relatively new Business School and lower rankings adversely affect job prospects in the US?

you must follow the plan:

1.get into EMBA program/(s)
2.think about which to choose.
3.think what to do next.

I would not think in "what if..." scenario mode. It is inpractical.

What if the last day of our planet is 12.12.2012 ???? oops :lol:

Thanks PTK but you haven't answered the question. Please answer the question if you can. Your comments on the issues posed will go a long way in helping a brother.

In giving you some perspective, I applied and got admits to Oxford and MIT last year but couldn't make it cos I couldn't secure company sponsorship on time (I therefore deferred MIT to 2012). Now I have sponsorship for both time and money.

I plan on reapplying to Oxford, and applying to Kellogg and LBS/Columbia . I have good chances, I have very strong stats and find that most of the EMBA programs view students like me as key to the diversity of their programs and also for the perspectives we bring to EMBA programs. Wharton is out mainly due to their program structure (have to be virtually resident in the US to be able to attend their alternating weekend program).

I'll be happy if you and/or other forum members can point me in the right direction.

Happy New Year to all
