Hi Career Tools,
I have been struggling with my mba decision, and would like to get the forum's opinion on it.
I have a N.A degree, and have been working in a major telecom in Canada for the last 8 years.
I have acceptances from 2 business schools.
One is a North American schools, which has decent reputation and ranking. There is no internship or exchange program with this school.
The other one is in Hong Kong. The school is ranked 16th and 11th in the world by Financial Times and the Economist, but I don't think many people know it in North America. (Taught in English, of course). This program does have internship and exchange program, with which I will likely choose to go to a top school in N.A or even Europe.
Although I was originally from the Asia region and moved to N.A at a young age, I do want to expand my horizon with my MBA experience. Overall, the Hong Kong one is probably going to give me better education experience. I do know that the person himself and the career experience are more important than the degree, but in choosing a MBA program, the school's name/reputation is an important too.
1. I wonder if you think the Hong Kong school will limit me to only stay in Asia.
2. How will the degree from the HK school be viewed in N.A. or other regions of the world given that it may not be well known to people outside the region.
3. Does it help to add/enhance the reputation in my resume if I state the ranking of the school and my exchange experience to other top schools (possibly ivey league schools, duke, london business school...etc)
Thanks in advance,
