Do international students sign up for Brand Management courses and how many end up with
good jobs in the CPG like industry.

I have heard that companies do not prefer international students as Brand Managers.
Is this true.

Does anyone have any statistics.

Hi, I don't have statistics but I visited a lot of MBA schools and one of the questions that came up was 'do international students get jobs in P&G, Colgate, Johnsons&Johnson" as brand managers, and most of the answer is no, they prefer citizens. However, they did say that 'maybe' if you impress them well enough they might be inclined to do so, and these people would help their international peers in doing so.

The success in doing that however, I do not know, they did not say if it worked or not, they just said it was tough, and they help each other.

hi, but then what are the options to get into marketing in luxury sector..
is it suitable to do an MBA in luxury from Europe (since most schools offering this specialization are there) or is it better to just do an MBA from a well reputed school and eventually go to luxury?

I researched a couple of schools but dunno how good they are for employment.

like how are ISC, ECG, INSEEC,EDC..

Hi there, I don't know actually. I only know for American schools as I am an international student here. I don't know much about Europe. It might be different because I heard Europe is more accepting of intl students to work than America is. You could probably go to their websites and look for Alumni's who are willing to talk in those sectors and email them and ask them about it.
