Where do you want to work/live after business school? The US? Europe? Latin America?

Hi Alex...
thank you for responding.

In the short term I would like to work in EUA ou Europe (I have citizenship from portugal) in multinational companies and gain international experience. In the long term - 3/4 years after graduated- I would like to return to Brazil and assume a company division in the latin america market.

I am strongly considering the NYU joint degree program with HEC, the solo NYU MBA and Kellogg. I prefer USA, but in Europe, I am considering HEC and ESADE. Since my boyfriend is also applying (works in VC and PE industries) I start looking to programs from Booth, Haas and Wharton as well.We do not necessarly will go togheter, since our goals are totaly different.

I know I am not a "regular" candidate. Altought I graduated in the top business school in latin america, I work in the appearel industry, in a relatively small brazilian company. But in this company I have a lead position in this company and have faced the risks inherit in enterpreneurship.
Moreover I work in the entertainmet industry, as a professional costume designer.

Thank you again...

If you want to work in Europe right after graduation, you are best off focusing on European schools as it just makes recruiting a lot easier and more effective. Focus on INSEAD and LBS where you have enough of a chance that they're both worth applying to, and schools like IESE, ESADE, IE, Oxford, and Cambridge as schools where you have a reasonable shot of getting into.

This is assuming that you and your boyfriend are completely comfortable being apart, but that comes down to how serious the relationship is.

An alternative is to apply to a subset of the schools I mentioned above, and then apply to a subset of the schools that your boyfriend is applying to. As for which ones, that is something I trust you can work out together with him.
