Interested in any perspectives. IESE, IE, and ESADE all are well regarded, but which is best for a goal to work in EU mid to large TECH companied or late stage startups. Not necessarily FAANG but solid companies or potential growth companies.

IESE
-generally top ranked out of the 3
-highest average/median pay
-best placement in MBB (strong program strength indicator)
-intense 2-3x a day case studies, unsure if a pro or con for tech recruiting and networking
-most expensive
-Barcelona

ESADE
-highest tech placement (almost 30%)
-Very well regarded in entrepreneurship/startup
-flexible internships and program length
-most affordable
-Barcelona (suburb)
Full business school - most alumni (undergrad)

IE
-Limited to lo options for internships
-Only a year
-strong placement and reputation
-located in a capital city (Madrid)

Are you a career switcher or not? If you are brand new to tech, then you will benefit from a 2-year program so you can do an internship and get 2 shots at recruiting. If you are familiar with Tech, 1- year program is probably the most efficient and fastest way there. It is intense but tech recruiting tends to be much more immediate as opposed to consulting that can have a lead time of 6 or even 9 months after offer. Tech is usually a few months as the companies are not willing to wait a lot time and so you could recruit in the spring for the summer/fall start.

I am not familiar with the specifics of tech recruiting at these 3 schools but these general principles stand across the board.

P.S. You want to pay attention at the employment reports to see where in terms of geography people are recruiting. I assumed you were talking about EU in my reply. Then I looked at your username and wondering if you are in EU or not... if you are not from EU, there will be some considerations for a work permit which makes recruiting always less fun and more complex. Usually the rule of thumb is that you want to go to school in the country/continent you are going to recruit.

Yes, dual EU. Definitely want a program that has full internship. Thanks.

Not sure how valid this ranking is, but it is something to go off at least. ESADE pretty high

I don’t trust rankings at all. Look at their employment reports for TMT

I would counter that employment reports are almost as flawed as rankings though. Both pull arbitrary data to make schools look better and do not tell the full story. There is no standard employment report especially internationally. Still I think employment reports (1) and rankings (2) are good reference points. Best data point is talking to recent grads who recruited, actual recruiters, or simple Linkden searches.

Employment reports for US schools are audited and validated by KPMG and there is a governing body that re-validated them. I agree that there isn’t a standard format, but there is enough information to help you make a smarter decision.

On the other hand, rankings used surveys and data that can’t be traced and validated. Like 3 years salary gain, etc. there is no traceability for it. How could little known schools in China be in the top 20 list of FT ranking?
