Hi!

I am an Indian applicant and have received scholarship from both Emlyon

My post MBA goals are to move into strategy consulting (although it's not set in stone, i am open for product management roles in tech firms as well). I already have a product management background in data analytics .

I am a bit confused among these schools:



Any leads will be helpful!!

Hello thethinker


Congrats on admission to both schools and received scholarship :thumbup:

You should not be confused between those two schools, you should have gone through thorough research before applying in case something like this (multiple offers) may happen, so you can know in advance your preference.


Based on FT rankings EMLyon is just a little bit better ranked than Copenhagen, with little bit better average weighted salary and higher salary increase :

If we take a look at another FT rankings list of best European business schools difference is apparent, EMLyon is on 21. place vs. Copenhagen on 33. (was on 51. place just year ago)

http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... kings-2018


Economist also agrees with this juxtaposing, EMLyon is placed on 70. place worldwide vs. Copenhagen being on 89. place.

Moreover, I present you with head to head comparison between them, by using Economist comparison tool in all important categories below (lower number means better ranked ).


Having said all this, you will not make a wrong choice if you decide to go to Copenhagen, it is well known school in Europe and abroad.

Also, you should know where you would rather live, Lyon vs. Copenhagen, I cannot answer that for you ;) it comes to personal preference.


I will vote for EMLyon.


Good Luck with decision :cool:

No certain answer to this.
I think you must visit their employment stats and companies which recruit from there.
Then you should decide which school you want to attend. Also look at the focus of the school and Courses you want to enroll in.
Do you want to come back to India after MBA or want to work in Europe? based on the answer decide which school has reputation in Indian Market OR which school places International candidates in Europe market. How is the international MBA hiring from both the schools. Connect with Alumni and people who are in you target sector to understand the same.

I hope it helps.

I saw the Emlyon's placement statistics and it was until 2015-16.Speaking to Emlyon students ,there weren't able to provide clear picture.The school has entrepreneur focus.
This information makes me skeptical

Personally, I never heard the name of Emlyon before except for Once when One of my friend from IIM Calcutta was going for Exchange Semester program. So I have no idea about the reputation of it. why don't you look into Linkedin for the India MBA from Emlyon and where they are now?? This might help.
If Emloyn is an entrepreneur Scool, As those students said, you can surely find traces on LinkedIn. If your target is entrepreneurship then you can think about it, But IMHO you should go to Copenhagen. you can find many indian MBA grad from Copenhgen on LinkedIn.

All the best with your selection. Do let us know the decision and reason behind.
Best Wishes.

Hi,
I'd love to hear what you've chosen. Personally, I've been admitted to an MSc at EMLyon (double degree with Hanken, Finland) and CBS with full-ride scholarships, and ended up choosing CBS for the following reasons:
1/ CBS is the top 1 business school in Denmark, while EMLyon is top 4, 5 in France.
2/ I prefer the program at CBS than that of EmLyon.
3/ The potential of the CEMS double degree at CBS.
4/ Most opportunities in France happen in Paris, while Copenhagen is the hub of Denmark.
5/ Relatively easier access to the job market in Sweden/Germany - My targeted countries after graduation.
It was a tough decision for me, as I really love French language and culture. France is also much bigger than Denmark in terms of population and job opportunities.
