MiM worth it?

  • Posted by - wifeng - on 20 May 2015 - 12:35am

    Hi Thomas

    I've been thinking to apply for a MiM or MiF after graduation, but when I was surfing from website to website, I found out that the starting salary of a MiM or MiF graduate is pretty similar to a Msc in some Engineering, so I got a bit "dispointed",
    Is MiM or MiF really a good "iinvestment"?

      Hi there,

      I understand your thoughts but your question seems to broad to me. First, what "worth the investment" means differs from person to person. For some it is finding a job, for others it is finding the right job, for some it is a decent salary, for others it is a successful career in the long-term etc.

      Als on the supply side, you can find as many differences as similarities among programs. MIM programs not only differ regarding their admission criteria, for example, but also regarding their career outcomes,

      A more valuable question for you may be: "How must a Master in Management look like so that it is worth it for ME?"

      To pursue this question, I recommend you reading two important sources:
      (1) Read the career chapter in the Global MIM Survey 2014. This provides you with a first impression about the career potential of MIM programs.
      (2) Read my MIM eBook and particularly the chapter "Career benefits". This will provide you with a clear approach to the potential of (some) MIM programs and how you identify them.

      Best wishes
