If you exclude those ventures/social work/internship etc. which are primarily meant to keep oneself occupied while looking for a regular job, then what % of the Said MBA 2008 graduates from India, you believe, are still looking for a satisfactory job?
Thanks in advance.
Does the Oxbridge label stick even in the case of MBAs from Oxford and Cambridge or is it primarily for the people who do Undergrad there?
I have heard people saying Business schools are seen as only peripheral and not seen as the core of these Universities! Is this true?
How valuable are the MBA degrees from Oxbridge in terms of brand value within UK/London, as compared to LBS or INSEAD or Wharton or Chicago? On par or better or one step lower?
As an alum of one of these schools, your views will be very much appreciated by members of PG like me.
calpolytech SaysAnyone have their opinions? Are they perceived at the same level from companies etc? How is the network from either school? Is one recognized more in the US v. Europe (or other parts of the world)?
Are the placements of Oxbridge better than IIMA PGPX/ ISB?
Know a guy from Said 2008, he mentioned the college provides very less in terms of placement services and it is your networking which helps. He came back to India and got a job of around 18-20 lakhs in a reputed firm as thr were not many openings abroad.
If there are any alumni on the forum, pls share your experience on the placements front...
I am not very clear on the pros and cons of Judge/SAID vs Indian programmes like ISB, IIMA PGPX etc!
I know the Indian programmes cost about Rs 20 Lakhs and the one-year programmes like Judge/SAID cost about Rs 35 Lakhs including living expenses at the current exchange rates.
I understand that the UK programmes will have a much better brand in UK/Europe and possibly in SEA. This also might be of help in terms of better job opportunities in UK, though things are bad just now!
As far as Indian job market is concerned, I would suspect that ISB and PGPX/PGPEX and EPGP will command at least equal, if not better brand value.
I have always wondered what is the thought process behind the people's choice of Judge and SAID over ISB and other one year programmes at IIMs!
Are these seen as superior and better value for money and do people choose SAID/ Judge over ISB/PGPX etc! or is it that the people who couldn't make it to ISB or PGPX/EX try and get into Judge and SAID!
It will be nice if the applicants and people who got admits and have decided to join these programmes can give the thinking behind their choices.
I mean no offence; my intention is only to gain better understanding.
