    Hi Thomas,

    First of all, thanks for this wonderful MiM-focussed forum.

    I'm looking at top MIM programs having a Jan / Feb 2013 intake. I'm interested in IE Business School's MIM which has a Feb intake (with a pre-program beginning in Jan). Any other good programs that I should consider?

      Hi there,

      thank you for your question.

      If you ask for good MIM programs, well there are many. I am afraid that the question seems to be too broad too answer and it takes more narrowing down according to your preferences.

      For instance, if your preference is studying at two or three campuses in diferent countries, the IE MIM may not the right program because it is only in Madrid. Then the CEMS MIM or the Hult MIB may be better.

      The question of where you wanna work directly after graduating is important by the way. In our Global Master in Management (MIM) Survey 2012 we found that 90 percent of MIM graduates start their career in the country where the campus is located.

      There are many good schools out there and you find some of them in our list of sponsoring partners.

      Another approach could be: Does the school have experience with placing graduates with your nationality? E.g., if someone is from India and applies for a school that never had a student from India and accordingly has no clue if the companies that come to campus recruit them... it may be not ideal... You can read the statistics on the schools' websites for this or simply ask the admissions team.

      Best wishes
