I am an Indian guy (25.5 years)with close to 3.5 years experience till date. I have experience in the marketing field and also running my own successful venture for a couple of years. Excellent acads till date, low extra curriculars. GMAT - 640 mostly due to a bad verbal day, but got a 8.5 on ielts. I would love to work in Europe for 2-3 of years after graduation and then move back to entrepreneurship...maybe kickstart a new venture.

I am confused between the following:

1. Should I go for Masters or MBA- I have an interview shortlist for the Grand Ecoles ALL schools and am applying for MBA as well at some.
2. Already accepted for the WHU program, however, it being last minute I was unable to get the visa processed for their Apr 2012 start date
3. Already applied to EMLYON and HHL Leipzig. The target schools I have in mind are Mannheim, ESMT, RSM Erasmus
4. I am looking for good networking and decent scholarships if available, at the schools I will apply
5. Is it worth applying to the UK schools, with the visa restrictions effective from Apr 2012.

Considering my profile and career goals, which school might be ideal for me? Any other tips, especially from someone who is studying or currently studying there will be extremely useful

While i did not get my MBA in Europe, I have helped many clients with the top schools there. I can say that in general, the MBA is a much more marketable degree and has become the standard internationally for business career advancement. The Masters might be a bit more flexible in curriculum so you could design your classes to focus on exactly the kinds of things that interest you in the entrepreneurial realm. On the other hand, the MBA would likely be a more general approach to the broad skills and knowledge you would need to either work for a company or run your own business. In short, the MBA seems to have more value. As to which specific schools you should apply, it would be tough to say without a more in-depth exploration of your goals and background, but it sounds like you have done more than your fair share of due dilligence to this end, so I would point you to the schools where you feel you fit in well with their culture and curriculum. In the end, you will get the skills and education you need from any accredited program. Hope this helps.
