    Hey everyone, recently I got accepted to the MiM at IESE as well as the Masters of Digital Business in ESADE. I am waiting on St. Gallen, HEC Paris, LBS, INSEAD and ESCP.

    How should I prioritize these?

    Some information about me:
    I am an Indian citizen who grew up abroad. I would like to work in Europe, US or Canada. I am native in English and B1 in German but would definitely prefer an English speaking country to work in. So I'm ideally looking for a university which if not in these places, has a good level of placement to these regions.
    I am looking to get into consulting at one of the MBBs, so one which is respected by the MMBs would be a great plus. Thank you all for your help.

      in my post below I already gave suggestions on how to decide among schools. Most importantly, I recommend building your own personal criterion, whether career-based, experience-based, resource-based or intuition-based.

      Career-based: Choosing a campus in a country where you want to work afterwards makes sense. Now, can you clarify on which campus your favorite employers recruit? Or where the graduates of a certain school start to work after graduation? How many people from yoru country managed to stay in the country after graduation? Tip: Ask the schools and search for the career reports on their websites.

      If you want to get into consulting: Which school has the best connections to consulting firms?

      And so on...You understand the logic. Now it's time to do the job and investigate along your criteria lines...

    Hello everyone,
    I've been admitted to these programs:
    -Master in global management at ESMT
    -CEMS Master in international management at UCD
    -Master in management at Montpellier Business School

    All these schools are triple accredited, and on the top in rankings, in particular the first two.
    In your opinion, which one should I choose?

      Hi there,

      there are several criteria based on which you can make your decision as I outline in my MIM ebook .

      Most importantly, these criteria should be YOUR criteria. This is the best approach to guarantee that you won't regret your decsion afterwards.

      One criterion can be linked to your career goals. For instance, do your favorite employers recruit on the respective campus? In which country do you want to work after graduation and which of the respective schools has a better reputation there?

      Another criterion can be linked to your experience goals. For example, in which of the three countries do you want to spend a year of your life?

      Another criterion can be linked to your gut feeling. Vsit each campus and ask yourself: Where do I feel better?
