ADMISSIONADOS n a e p o Eur THE ART OF THE MBA APPLICATION

Its not all Baguettes and Lederhosen

You must unlearn what you have learned. - Master Yoda

A very, very serious presentation Lets rock and roll

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT A EUROPEAN MBA PROGRAM? Shorter Program Good Deadlines Good op4on for those who are late in the game Can also be a good op4on for those who didnt get accepted to US programs of their choice You want to live, work and study in Europe You want to learn a new language or take advantage of another one you have You are seeking a program that is TRULY Global

Its all about ROI, people. Let me explain. Are you older? Do you want to spend less money? Do you want to spend less 4me without a job? Do you want the same results as your friends at US schools? Did you miss your deadlines, or not get in?

INTRODUCING A FEW MORE SCHOOLS YOU MAY NOT HAVE CONSIDERED


There are a LOT of schools out there, folks. Europe is catching up to America in both number and pres4ge of the programs. Yet many remain a bit o the radar. Partly it has to do with marke4ng, partly because some schools have great reputa4ons in their countries only, and have yet to make waves in the rankings. (An aside about the rankings in general the Financial Times and Economist rankings see far more clearly when it comes to European and Asian programs than do American rankings, which heavily bias North America and Anglo countries) The MOST important thing to keep in mind is YOUR specic goals!! If a school can t your goals, then its probably a good place to apply.

ESPAA

INSTITUTO EMPRESA (IE)

Actually holding the baguene under your arm REALLY is a good way to carry it

HEC - OH LA LA, MBA!

Small, in4mate, and set in one of the worlds most beau4ful and dynamic ci4es, HEC oers an excellent program ideal for those whose work des4na4on is Europe. 16-Month Program divided into two halves: 1. The Core Phase 2. The Personalized phase.

Mission and Ac4on Program (MAP) This is a hands-on consultancy project conducted in developing world-countries with a humanitarian goal.

OXFORD SAID
