Hi everyone...

Just got off the waitlist for INSEAD yesterday and I do not know what should I do.. Actually, I can not stop thinking about this!! I got accepted to ESADE two months ago and already paid a deposit non refundable and got a scholarship there.

Where do you think I should go, ESADE or INSEAD? It is some money difference between the two schools but INSEAD was always my first option and I have to get back to them on monday with my final decision.

Do you think that the difference between the schools is worth this money? Everyone with an opinion regarding this please help me.

What are your career goals and where do you want to work? Which Insead campus - does it bother you to be in either one?

Insead is a much bigger brand than ESADE, especially in Asia/ME. Also, it is much widely known in the US. ESADE is (sort of) a regional school. Although I had a cousin who went to ESADE and has now worked in Africa and ME. In addition, the local recruiting at ESADE might be a bit worse (because of the events in EU).

I think it might be better to pass up 23k if you're planning to move out of EU.

(take my thoughts with a grain of salt)

Well, yeah INSEAD is a much bigger brand than ESADE. However, If ESADE is equally capable of fulfilling your career goals AND you'd be genuinely happy there AND forfeiting the deposit puts you in a difficult financial situation, then go for it and turn down INSEAD.

If there is no pressing financial difficulty, then obviously you should go to the best school you can get into.

Where do you think I should go, ESADE or INSEAD? It is a 23.000€ difference between the two schools but INSEAD was always my first option and I have to get back to them on monday with my final decision.

Do you think that the difference between the schools is worth this money? Everyone with an opinion regarding this please help me.


So, tell us, what was your final decision and why?
