American vs European MBAs
The first Debate of the Month will be dedicated to the longstanding battle: American vs European MBAs.
We will analyse stereotypes and see what is true and what isn’t when it comes to the leaders in the global MBA rankings.
We will find out how crucial the prestige and popularity of schools actually are and whether these factors have anything to do with the quality of the schools’ MBA programmes.
We will compare the costs of American and European MBAs and will determine the ROI and career prospects of their respective graduates.
We will take a look into the differences between the admissions requirements of both the European and the US MBAs and will see how hard it is to get in.
We will also focus our attention on the length of the programmes and will discuss the differences between one-year and two-year programmes. We will shed light on whether the content varies between the shorter and the longer programmes and explore whether the length of an MBA is crucial to its quality.
Finally, we will analyse the trends in ROI among graduates of both European and American MBAs. We will follow how the schools’ graduate networks impact alumni careers and try to evaluate whether class size has anything to do with the amount of valuable professional contacts that graduates gain by the time they receive their diplomas and beyond.
