How would you view a European MBA on a resume for a US based firm?

LBS or INSEAD is "Target", so Top 15 or so. Oxford and Cambridge is top 25, recognizable but on the outer edge of target like McDonough Georgetown or Goizueta Emory. All other schools I don't think carry much weight. IESE and HEC are probably better schools than Oxford and Cambridge, but the average American just wouldn't really know them. Doesn't mean they're not good schools, just my opinion as someone involved in recruiting.

Would agree with this. For Oxbridge it’s undergrad or GTFO.

INSEAD, LBS ~= M7, haven’t heard much about other programs.

If you're coming in through on campus recruiting, it will get you in the door. If you're an experienced hire, MBA's carry less weight. Your background will matter more.

This is a really good point. MBAs are about the on-campus recruiting. Nobody really cares after that.

Depends on the program. INSEAD, LBS, maybe Oxford would be a plus. Otherwise probably just an interesting thing to note.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring.

I’m leaning towards the PE firm bc it’s more hands-on, faster learning curve, and higher TC, but the VC role seems to have a better WLB and generally sounds cooler (getting exposed to VC vs continuing in the corporate world).
