I'm interested in doing an MBA at INSEAD and then working as a management consultant somewhere in the EU. The problem is that I'm a non-EU citizen (Indian) and I don't speak any European languages. I heard that most consulting companies in European countries only hire consultants who speak the local language. Also I heard that most consultants at INSEAD are sponsored by European consulting firms where they are already employed. So I'm wondering if my goal is at all reasonable?

PS: I'm new to this forum, so apologies if this is a repetitive topic. Would appreciate it if you could point me towards any past discussions on this topic.

Well answer is pretty simple

with no European language you can work only in London.. which I must tell you is the most competitive job location on campus... so yes there are opportunities but the competition is even tougher

Thanks for the reply. That's just as I suspected. I guess I should stay away from INSEAD then. But I wonder why so many international students (non-Europeans) go to INSEAD?
