Good Evening Thomas and Happy New Year!
Could you please let me know what you think of my profile as a candidate for schools like St. Gallen, IE, LSE, WHU and Rotterdam? I am interested in pursing a MIM with the intention of working in consulting.
A little about me:
It seems to me like there aren't many US students in many MIM programs. Am I correct? If so, do you know why this is? I haven't been able to put my finger on it and it is worrisome to me.
So glad to have found the MIM Compass community and appreciate all the work you put in!

the answer is easy for me... I think you have very good chances at ll of these schools.
As for your other question, many US Americans don't study in Europe in general because European schools are less known in the US. Furthermore, a Master in General Management (MIM) is unknown for many companies in the US as well. Traditionally, the MBA is THE postgraduate general management education. The US education institutions are changing, however, and adopt many European ideas. For example, 1 year MBA programs are offered also i the US now (and at top schools...). Masters in Management spread out more and more as well and renowned schools such as Thunderbird can support their MIM graduates in finding a job based on the school's reputation.
If you want to work in Europe, I would consider a program here. If you want to work in the US, I would consider to study there.

Can't thank you enough for your response. You hint at the key question I've been asking myself the last few months... US or Europe? I think if I am ever to do it, working in Europe at 23 is the best time. =)
I'll certainly share your MIM Compass with friends looking at the degree. Your information is invaluable!
