actually from my point of view you should choose EDHEC if you're sure about a career in Business Consulting. Especially the possibility of a double degree (MIM + MSc in Org. Consult.) is very appealing. I think during this program you will get nice insights and get perfectly prepared for a career in a consultancy company.
As I stated before I'd choose EDHEC over CASS for Consulting and CASS over EDHEC for a career in a financial related position.
Furthermore let me try to explain why I decided to choose ESADE over EDHEC. First of all I must admit that the current situation in Europe, especially southern Europe (including Spain) is far away from perfect. BUT - from my point of view the current economic situation in a country does not imply anything about the quality of a Business School in this country. Especially the high percentage of foreign students in the Master programmes of both ESADE and EDHEC marks the economic situation in the country as a non-valid criteria.
In my opinion more important than the economic situation in the country where the Business School is located, is the reputation of the business school in the country you like to work after graduation and the placement report of the business school.
From my point of view the reputation of ESADE, especially in the Business Consulting sector in Germany, is slightly higher than that of EDHEC. Additionally the MSc of Internat. Management from ESADE is pretty strong in Germany as well as in the Consulting sector (http://www.esade.edu/management/eng/my- ... management
), even though EDHEC's is not far behind. Another point that contributed to my decision was that I prefered a 1-year master's degree.
So all in all I'm really happy that I'll become a part of ESADE this fall. EDHEC would have been my second choice and I think you can't do anything wrong with going for it.
So finally just my opinion regarding your last question:
YES - the Spanish Business Schools are definitely worth it. Just have a glance at recent rankings (for example FT http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... kings-2011
) as an indicator. As I stated before I think the current economic situation should not be a point in deciding which business school to choose!
