Hello,

I have received admission offer to pursue MSc in Management from Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management and from Louvain School of Management. I have an offer from University of Zurich as well to pursue MA in Management and Economics. I am not really sure which one will be more rewarding and provide with better learning experience. Please suggest which program I should choose.

Regards.

Hi ranaazad27

Congrats on being admitted to those three European programs.

In short you should go to University of Zurich, without a doubt.

I would. :)

University of Zurich is by far better know, ranked and branded among those three schools.

That being said, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management and Louvain School of Management are good schools, just University of Zurich is better.

By attending University of Zurich you will join most elite ones in Europe in Economics game.

It is not quite comparison apples to apple, by comparing management and economics programs, but in their section Solvay and Louvain are much lower ranked, as per World University Rankings - Masters In Management 2018, Solvay is placed 48. and Louvain was not in top 100 !

Another ranking by MIM-Compass, placed Solvay on 43. place and Louvain on 60. place.

Keep in mind, that although this is master in management rankings, they mention only Masters in Business Engineering for both Solvay and Louvain, which is not your intended program.

This should be caveat for you and potentially red flag, that they didn't thought that from those two schools your program was worth of ranking.

This is also the case with Financial Times rankings of the MiM programs.

I assume you applied to those schools since you live in Belgium or you are close.


By Shanghai Ranking Zurich is ranked 54th globally and 15th in Europe.

By same rankings Université libre de Bruxelles/Solvay and Université catholique de Louvain are both ranked between 101-150. place.

QS World University Rankings ranked Zurich 57th globally and 14th in Europe, versus Université libre de Bruxelles/Solvay on 168. place, and Université catholique de Louvain on 153. place.


Moreover, Professional Ranking of World Universities (Based on the number of alumni listed among CEOs in the 500 largest worldwide companies) ranked University of Zurich 32nd globally and 10th in Europe.

Also, the Department of Economics at University of Zurich was ranked first in the German-speaking area.

That would be apples to apples comparison.

If you don't have some personal, money or family etc. reasons to go to Belgium schools, I would strongly advise you to go to University of Zurich.

Albert Einstein would be proud of you :cool: :student_man:

Hope this research helps you to decide !

Good luck, or should I say Viel Glück, or perhaps Bonne Chance ? :fingers_crossed:
