Hi guys,

really hard decision atm:

Got admitted to ESADE and IESE FTMBA programs and now in decision between those two.

Both programs are really similar, although IESE seems to have a slight advantage in few ratings.

Due to their fees and the scholarships I got offered, IESE will be tougher to finance, while ESADE will be a bit more comfortable financially speaking (currently difference of 25k EUR to finance, scholarship + loan will cover complete tuition of ESADE, loan + scholarship will not cover complete cost of IESE MBA).

My thinking is that an MBA is also what you make out of it - I am thinking about the easier financial situation to allow me easier access to extracurriculars/treks and exchange possibilities.

What is your take on this?

Thanks for the help!

I agree with you - at this stage I don't see there any proof or justification to spend more $$$ on IESE, esp since the two programs are less than a 10 minute walk from each other :-)
