@agoyal That's a very frank insight into the real world perspective of IE. What are your thoughts on the brand value of IE outside of Spain/EU. Would it be tough for International (read: Indian) students to find jobs in English speaking countries like US/UK?

Also can you provide some insight on the Blended/Blended Squared programs? They don't seem like full time programs, but the '+Tourism Management' option sounds pretty exciting. Would you be able to shed some light on Global vs. International MBA?

Would it be possible to pick up course of Spanish along with the MBA course work? And would that help with the job prospects?

In pursuit of the YumBeeYay dream ... Year 8 :-D
@agoyal Sir can you throw some light on Oxford Said Business school
Continuous learning is the best way of defense

Hi Vikas,

Unfortunately I cannot provide you an accurate feedback on that as I haven't gone through that process yet. But from what I have perceived till now, it is not worse than being from any other top B-school outside India. Indian recruiters are not much aware of other non-Indian B-schools, so it will all depend on how well you can pitch yourself to them.

Hello agoyal,

Can you provide your opinion on the recognition of IE Business School among Indian recruiters , from your experience so far @ IE ?

Hello MBA aspirants,

I am presently studying at IE and have an advice for you all : Don't come to IE unless you are confident of finding a job on your own.
IE is a good school for acads, infrastructure, networking and everything else but not for its Career Management center. I went on an exchange program to a US school and CMC is so much better here. Even if you can get into a ranked 40 college in US, it is still better from job prospects than IE and even other European schools (except LBS & INSEAD). This is primarily due to 3 reasons - 1) US schools are more focused on getting that one job..2) EU is in a pretty bad shape 3) Europe is not very open to immigrated work force and language is also a big barrier to entry.

Just for the sake of stats: last year only a couple of Indians got placed in Europe (out of 20-25)..rest had to go back to India. This year as well, things are in a pretty bad shape.

So, I would advice you do a lot more research and have a plan, before you come to IE.

Gud Luck !

Yes , it does!
