If you’re planning on staying in Europe and getting a good placement, IESE is one of the best you’ve got (besides LBS and INSEAD of course). Pros are: amazing faculty (more cases than Harvard apparently), up and coming, as good placements as LBS / INSEAD but more Europe focused than UK, diverse cohort (surprisingly well divided between Latin America and the rest despite Spanish), growing list of alumni who will likely be in senior positions in the future, Barcelona Barcelona Barcelona - one of the best cities in the world after all Cons: the whole prestige argument (the biggest con), intensely academic as compared to industry focus - to balance it out it’ll mean you’ll have many sleepless nights but guess it prepares you well for Consulting / IB If you’re planning to work in the US (short or long term) - definitely worth considering US more than IESE - other than Insead / LBS - don’t think the Americans even need to care about schools outside the US due to the sheer amount of good schools (M7s to T15s) they have there

If we’re talking European MBA I’d say INSEAD/LBS or bust

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance.

Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
