How do companies in Europe view T15 MBAs from USA? For instance if down the road I relocate to Europe would a T15 MBA from USA give me a competitive edge? Or its just neutral? Europe doesn’t care.

Stanford, Stanford, Stanford…. Then MIT. They’ll know Harvard, NW, Chicago, Wharton if they’re in the business World. More regional schools like T15 they’ll have no idea in my experience. They’ll know the big state school names like Michigan, UCLA, Berkeley more so because colleges are mostly state run in Europe and so they assume it’s a good school because the State runs it.

I’d say Stanford or bust tbh. While at Oxford and London it’s the only school people genuinely cared about. Obv you don’t need to debate or explain Silicon Valley, Stanford and its role in shaping and transforming the whole World.

My very uneducated idea was that they care more about the prestige of the parent university. So a yale or tuck could be solid. But I’m spitballing here.

Most won’t know Yale and especially not Tuck. Stanford is the school they all talk about and want to get into and/or be apart of given its role in creating the Silicon Valley ecosystem

It will help if it’s from the Ivy League because the average joe focuses on the parent university

I lived there and like anywhere they care about their local schools and think they’re the best in the World

Stanford is the school everyone respects and knows IMO worldwide because of Silicon Valley
