HBS 2+2 / Wharton Deferred - applying from Europe
Interested in hearing peoples views on the value of HBS / a Wharton MBA for those who plan on ending up in continental Europe / London over the long term.
Recently discovered the HBS 2+2 program, and before I commit to preparing for the GMAT etc., I was wondering if anyone on this forum has been in a similar position and could share their experience.
Clearly, it would require a significant investment of time and effort to put together a competitive application, and before doing so it would be good to hear if anyone who was successful in the process feels it was worthwhile. More broadly, how are MBA's viewed in the European job market?
Not too sure about what I want to do long term which I guess is where the initial appeal lies. Will be spending the summer at EVC/CVP/PJT in London and hopefully will convert and join as an analyst next year. Can't work out whether after an IB analyst stint, taking two years out to go and do an MBA is a waste of time / money for European candidates.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts
