Hello, people. Few of my friends who are doing MBA from France have told me that only IELTS is required and GRE/GMAT are not required for admission in MBA. Are such colleges reliable?
One of the top business schools in Europe is IESE Business School in Spain. I think it is constantly ranked top 10 globally... there is a group of students there that are starting up a project to link current MBAs with MBA applicants. It is called MBA Applicant Exchange and the site is mbaexchange.weeblydotcom if anyone is interested. I have spoken to one the of the MBAs there and I was able to gather a lot of good information.
During the internship period one can earn 1000 to 1200 Euros per month.
I would like to add one more B school to your MBA wish list. It's John F Welch College of Business, Luxembourg (www.shu.lu).
It's a 16 month MBA Program, 9 months will be PAID internship (Yes you can earn a fair amount !) and 4 months intensive classes which you can either opt from SHU, Fairfield, CT, USA or from Luxembourg. After completion of the program you will get 2-years work permit.
Tuition Fees (including books): 29000 Euros.
Accommodation and other expense: 1100 Euros per month.
You can work up to 10 hours per week.
16 years of academic qualification.
You need a decent TOEFL/IELTS and GMAT 's score. (GMAT can be waved off in special cases).
In case you have more questions please feel free to ask:)
Good Luck !
I don't think I need to say further, Matthew has shared all the information there was regarding ESSEC. Some of the point that he mentioned, even I wasn't aware of. Well, first hand information really does help. If you still want some information then you can contact him because he has a better idea about the B school.
Other general information is available on their website, http://www.essec.edu/ And if you google "ESSEC" you'll get some accountable information.
All the best for your future!
I am currently a Global MBA student at ESSEC Business School in Paris, France. Indeed, ESSEC is one of the best schools in Europe and is ranked in the top 20 business schools. Additionally, ESSEC is among the top three business schools in France.
In addition to the coursework and international opportunities, the program is very focused on career options for the future. Students normally have classes 4 days a week and have 1 day dedicated to career services that include guest speakers, help with creating CVs, networking events, interview prepartion and job research skills.
