Well, regional in the sense that you have much better brand recognition within the UK/Europe market vs say Asia. ~65-70% students get placed there and I guess it should be similar for where your alums are as well.


Same with ISB, the brand recognition/opening the doors for you, at least in the short-term for you would be in India vs the rest of the world.

Yes, there’s much more cultural diversity in your class at Said vs ISB.

At the risk of igniting controversy, I’d say every school in the world is (almost) a regional school. When you study in Country X, it is unlikely that you will get a job in Country Y (think visa stipulations). Even in the UK, if you are an international, what will happen after a two-year work visa? Even the Oxford badge may not rescue you. Please don’t see my post as a discouragement; I’m just trying to prompt you to ensure a full due diligence.

Guys, would be really helpful if you could post questions from your interviews, etc.
Some of you here noted your interviews are on the 12th, 14th, etc.

Please share!

Congrats!! Did you request early decision? I thought they’d announce all the acceptances on the same date.

and what was your timeline from interview to acceptance if you don’t mind sharing?

Request for an early decision - does this affect their final decision in any way?
