Hello everyone,

I am facing a difficult choice and would like to have your help.

I have been admitted to both MBA programmes from HEC Paris and LBS.
HEC is willing to give me a scholarship worth 50% of their fees, while I still have to hear back on LBS scholarship decision.
Ideally, I would want to know how much I end up paying for both programmes before taking any decisions.
Unfortunately, the deadline to accept HEC offer and pay the €8k deposit comes before that.

I am aware LBS surpasses HEC in terms of reputation and future career prospects. For these reasons, LBS would probably be my first choice if I had not to think about costs. But I am not sure that these factors can justify the extra costs ~€60k (if I have to pay 100% of LBS fees)

What would you advise?

Thanks a lot!
L

If you prefer a 2-year program then HEC makes sense. It's less expensive and offers the option of gaining some relevant work experience. The only issue is that it's not as recognized as much outside of France.

Hei, thanks for your interest.

I would like to move from a technical engineering role to a management position. I would also like to learn how to successfully run a company joining a start-up or getting in management consulting. My long-term career goal is establishing my own business.

I’d go with LBS. Better brand name across the world, and better recruiting prospects as well.

In the longer timeframe the extra 60K will be totally worth it.
