Hi everyone!

I got the admission to IE, IESE and ESADE for the PhD in Management. I have to give my answer during this week and I am confused about what to do. Which school among these three do you recommend?

Thank you!!

Hi

Opinions will vary, IESE is probably the best bet among these because it is extremely well-networked with other top B-schools and has plenty of top professors from these institutions coming to teach. That will be an advantage to you in conducting research, networking for opportunities, or just gaining from the knowledge of these academics. Not saying that IE and ESADE don't have this on their campuses, but it is relatively lower.

I just want to know what you decided. I have also got an offer from IE and Aalto in Finland. I am still waiting a reply from some other schools. But I have to send a reply to IE soon.
Do you think their programme is good?

Hi! Yes I chose IESE, but Honestly my final decision was between IE and IESE. They are very similar and have very good fundings + good researchers for marketing. ESADE has a very very good marketing department but they offer would not allow me to live alone (financially speaking) during the first year.

Did you apply to PhD? Which track? And where? Maybe I can help you. I had several interviews around Europe so I could tell you whether it is too late to wait for an answer for others. If I were you, I would go to IE and not Alto, but it also depends on your research interests.

I didn't apply to Mannheim because I thought it was not worth it. And I did not consider Aalto at all, so I cannot say, I don't know the faculty! But I can ensure you, that the marketing department at IE is good and IE is especially known for enterprenership, so hopefully also the management faculty is good! They are very easygoing so just ask them who could be your supervisor. I also think that having flexibility is totally good for research, don't look at it as a weakness. Your research interests will develop so it will be good to work with more than one person. You might want to ask Aalto about this. And also, look at where your supervisors are publishing (which journals). In the end, it is the supervisor that makes the difference!!
