MBA Recognition in Asia - Europe vs USA

by kohsamed » Wed Apr 04, 2012 1:24 am
Hi All

I am a Brit looking to do an MBA in the UK or Spain, at one of the top Euro bus schools (possibly HKUST too). To date I have ruled out the US as i dont want a 2 year course, and I really don't like living in America.

Upon graduation I will most likely head to East Asia. Do people know what general MBA perceptions are like over there? I am assuming they lap up the Harvard brand, but what about Wharton/Columbia vs LBS/Insead? IE vs Stern?

I will probably end up doing the MBA that suits me the most (and accepts me :), but just wanted to get my head clear on what perceptions are likely to be

If you want to work in Asia, its probably best to attend a university around there so that you can start building your network over there. If are also up for some sun and surf then have a look at Australian schools. Great proximity and great location! I've heard good reviews about Edith Cowan in Perth. They also have partnerships with school in other parts of Asia.
