The Value of the European MBA: Meet Top Programs in New York Next Week

The following content was provided to Clear Admit by our partners at The MBA Tour.

Have you considered pursuing an MBA degree in Europe? In a world that has become increasingly global, studying abroad can offer many advantages for applicants seeking a diverse student body, a faster-paced program and smaller class sizes focused on collaborative teamwork.

Hear the experiences of students and faculty from European MBA programs:

As a continent, Europe is inherently multicultural, representing a vibrant mix of nationalities, customs and languages. European MBA programs reflect this diversity, frequently boasting classes made up of 85 to 90 percent international students drawn from as many as 35 to 40 different countries.

Most European MBA programs have smaller class sizes of between 50 and 70 students. An emphasis on interactive, collaborative group work allows students to benefit from the diversity of the student body while pinpointing strengths and weaknesses of their own to focus on throughout the program.

Reduced Time Out of the Workforce
Many European MBA programs last for between 11 and 18 months, shorter than the two-year model offered by most U.S. business schools. Because students graduate faster and return to the workforce sooner, pursuing an MBA in Europe can present a much lower opportunity cost. “It’s half the opportunity cost for more than double the global network, compared to most MBA programs,” says Michael Abare, INSEAD MBA ’13.
