Hey all,

I've made my GMAT in April '17, and have applied to a few schools last year, and whilst I was admitted to one program, I decided not to go for it - I felt not ready, rushed in my decision, and did not have an overall good experience.

This year, I applied nice and early to two schools, and was admitted to both. Now, I have a decision to make:

- WHU (Otto Beisheim School of Management) - Vallendar, Germany - admitted me with a 25% merit scholarship
- ESADE - Barcelona Spain - admitted me to their MS in Global Strategic Management. Extremely happy I was accepted here, as their intake for this program is only 60 students.

However, due to several balances, I'm unsure where to go from here! Financially, ESADE is attainable but tough, but I have not yet been in touch with their financial aid office. On the other hand, why would I turn down a 1-year, double MS program from two great schools (ESADE and McIntire School of Business from the University of Virginia) that also spends 2 months in China?

I'm lost, totally ready to decide on a coinflip! Anyone here with experiences or advice to help out?

Thanks in advance!

Hey Irpvano,


WHU would be a good option. The school has a pretty strong brand name is one of the best schools in Germany. Besides, Germany has good immigration laws and a strong economy, coupled with a booming startup market. So it will be easier to get jobs in the country.

ESADE is also a good school but due to Spain’s stagnating economy and poor immigration laws it will be difficult to find jobs there. You will hence not have a lot of time to network and make the most out of the degree. Since you are an EU resident, it will be easier to find jobs, but the economy is still a concern. Besides, the Dual degree option is also attractive, and will give you some international experience.
If international exposure is what you’re looking for, then the dual degree option is attractive, but you can also get an exchange program in WHU.

To help you make your decision, you can check out our WHU and ESADE school reviews.
