I am really interested in the Sloan Master’s program held at Stanford, MIT & LBS, I just wanted to ask a question and get a piece of advice if possible...
I am a UK citizen, and my background is 11 years in sales and marketing management with the last 5 at director level in a blue chip firms mainly covering business strategy and country management. I am curently working on secondment in Hong Kong as the regional Managing Director of an EU telco tasked with setting up our APAC business so I have leadership experience in Asia also. I have a BA(Hons) 2:1 Business & Management, an MA in Sales & Marketing Management (Merit) and an MBA from a top 5 UK, triple accredited elite business school. I haven’t done the GMAT however I would expect to get 700+ (im not afraid to study for it!). Firstly do you think I would be accepted into/be a good fit at these programs, do I have the right profile? Fastracked career progression into leadership roles at fortune 500 firms.
I now must add that my future wife (we marry in a few months) is American and we will be moving to the US after my assignment is finished (and the visa comes through!). So my next question is which school's program is best, ok so they are all top global B Schools, but my worry is that LBS will not be as 'accepted' when I move to the US by employers? (However it is $50,000 cheaper than MIT!). Is it best to do a US program or due to the Sloan degree does it really not matter?
I really appreciate any advice from people who have done this degree, and if so why they chose their particular school!
Also, while I have you, are MBA's from the UK 'recognized' so to speak in the US by employers? (My B-School was Manchester Business School)
