    Hello,

    no one can answer this question except for yourself after having done a thorough evaluation of the programs regarding (1) their alignment with your career goals and (2) their alignment with your resources (e.g. your financial resources, test scores etc.).

    Of course, there are general indicators of quality (e.g. does the school have an international accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS or AMBA) or not? But this refers to general quality. What you want is specific quality such as "Which program provides ME (and not my colleagues) with the best job prospects in THAT industry (and not in others) in THAT country (and not not in others) at THAT employer (and not at others).

    Imagine you were interested in a career as an investment banker and you woudl study at a international top school but without any investment bank recruiting there - then it would be the wrong school for YOU but maybe the best school for others.

    My recommendation: Follow a structured approach - and I outlined such an approach in my guidebook Business Masters - How you find the best Master in Management and MBA.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas
