Hi all, I'm in the fortunate position of having to choose between these three programs. They are all stellar but it is a difficult decision for me for various reasons. They are:
LBS MiM (1 year)
LSE Global MiM (2 years)
HEC-Yale Double Degree (2 years) in Management + Global Business and Society
Few facts about me
-I'm looking to do consulting in London after the Masters, but would be open to opportunities in the US should those open up from Yale SOM.
-Non-EU citizen, making it preferable to be in London for study to find jobs
- limited consulting/business experience, thus leaning toward a 2-year program to build that during the breaks for internships.
-Particularly conscious about brand name because my UK undergrad institution is a non-target. I understand that LBS travels far but probably not as well known in Asia-Pacific (where I'm from) compared to LSE. HEC even less so than LBS. Yale is Yale, but SOM is (supposedly) not as well regarded as LBS?
As you can see it's a pretty difficult decision. LBS would probably be the best choice if not for my limited business experience which may hinder any job hunt in the UK (thus warranting a 2 year degree). Between LSE and HEC-Yale, the latter probably has the better program (more practical) and gives exposure to two international environments. But LSE has great brand value and is in London, plus allows for a CEMS Double degree / MBA exchange also.
Any advice would be really appreciated!
