Hi all! I really need your help.
I have been admitted in both HEC and ESADE MBA. They are all very good B-school and I can’t decide it.
I’m working as product manager in household appliances industry. After MBA, I would like to continue working as product manager in industries , but not limiting the scope of industries. And also I want find a job in Europe.(I’m a Chinese)
For now I can’t speak French or Spanish. If I decide which school I will go, I will learn it.
Please give me some advice!
Thank you
Best regards

Hi ZYS ..
Welcome to Gmatclub. Many congratulations for the admits in top schools of Europe. Indeed, both of them are fantastic schools.
If I understood well, you are working outside of Europe. I would strongly recommend to HEC because of below reasons -
1. HEC is a well balanced programs of 16 months in which you can try and discover new things/ideas of different function/industry
2. HEC carries a bigger brand name than ESADE. HEC is highly reputed in Europe and has a stronger alumni network
3. I am not sure but you will get extended visa to find work in France
4. HEC has balance placement trend and not focuses on single industry. What you plan, you get it. There are ample opportunities in the field of Consulting/Tech/Entrepreneurship/Luxury/etc.
5. If you will know French, it will help you to find employment easier

I hope it helps. All the best :)

I am voting for HEC as well. It has a strong brand and part of the E7. (Top 7 EU schools). ESADE is not quite up there as it competes with IE and IESE...

Are you planning to work in Europe for a while after graduation? I believe many Chinese graduates looked up pretty quickly turn around and go back and work for one of the Chinese tech giants.


Spanish economy is usually somewhat slow compared to even France so if you are going to recruit locally may as well choose the stronger one.

If we go by FT, then the top 8 are in order of -
1. Insead
2. LBS
3. HEC
4. IESE
5. Judge
6. Said
7. Esade
8. IMD

Of course rankings are not everything, but a few names would be on bb 's list as well.

Thank you. And yes, I would like to find a job in Europe after graduation. Not target in a single country, but accept all opportunities. Does HEC have the well reputation in other countries except French? Like UK?

Both great schools. In simple terms, i think it comes down to career outlook and fit. HEC generally better for traditional industry, consulting, and banking; known as one of top euro schools especially in France and UK. ESADE known for entrepreneurship and does well with tech and those who want to go marketing ETC. Known to be collaborative and not the typical B school environment, with a strong presence in Spain and LATAM. I think ESADE might more breadth of alumni since it is known for undergrad and law as well, but HEC probably has more traditional MBA type alumni and has a larger class size per year.
