I am confused between the two programs here. I have been accepted to the HEC MiM and am pretty confident about the Ross Master of Management after the interviews.
My background : 24y Indian,Tier 1 univ, 740 GMAT, 13 months FT experience at CS risk reporting.
I would ideally want to work at a top strategy consulting ( ,LEK)
Top target program in Europe
A very complete course.
Significantly lower costs.
I highly doubt that MBB or other top consulting firms are even willing to hire non EU students who are not fluent in any European language.
The course is three years in we take into account the gap year, and I would be going in with 1y7m of FT work ex. Would be close to 28 when I graduate.
Doubtful about the prospects for a non EU English only speaking student.
Ross Master of Management
There is no language barrier as such, so it should be a lot easier.
A 10m course, which considering my work experience would be ideal. That could also give me a shot at a MBA program in future if things dont work out.
Although Ross is a top Bschool, the Master of Management is fairly new, so again, I'm not sure if MBB would be willing to hire graduates of this program (and that too international)
The H1B lottery
Although cost is not as important, it is twice of the HEC MiM.
As there are significant differences between the two programs, comparing them is very hard for me. The most improtant thing for me is to get a decent chance (atleast they should be willing to give me an interview despite by international background and the language issues) at a top consulting firm.
Any views from seniors here would be very helpful.
