Dear all, could you please help me on this hard decision?

My profile: Brazilian, 8 years of experience, career highlights = sales manager positions in FMCG and Internet companies

Post-MBA goals: stay in the country where I will take my MBA (either US or UK); position = Marketing or Operations; sector = FMCG or technology

Admissions: Cranfield, UNC, USC Ibear, Rochester Simon, all of them with partial scholarship (from 30% to 50%)

Which one of these programmes would be better for me to achieve my goals?

Which country (US or UK) is more opened to latin-american students and consequently would give me more possibilities to stay after the MBA?

Ideally I was looking for a one-year programme, but if a two-year MBA fits better into my goals I can of course change my opinion.

I really appreciate any thoughts and opinions you may share.
Thank you very much!

Thank you MacFauz!

Do you think UNC beats them even considering my goals in terms of career (land a position in US or UK), sector (FMCG/tech) and area (Marketing/Operations)?

I don't know much about those schools, but I can tell you that UNC is very well positioned in both of those sectors in Marketing. I'm not sure about operations, as that wasn't an area of research for me.

Yupp.. What she said... :)

Although, I do have an additional personal preference to picking UNC - I'm not a big fan of the 1 year program
