Thinking of getting an MBA at a school in an Asian country. Seems like schools like INSEAD and HKUST are ranked pretty high. Would going to a school like that hold weight for finding jobs in the USA?

Your network won't be US based if that's important. Hard to maintain connections unless you're in a major city v. school with classmates in many places

Can't really speak toward getting an MBA at HKUST but I spent a semester there in undergrad and it is an absolutely beautiful campus in an amazing city.

Insead clearly holds weight and can get you job in US (at least with bcg).
No idea whether US offices hire from hkust

If it's MBA you want to do it in the US. This is the locus for MBA. If it's masters then europe fine

Key advantage of many European programs: 1yr without income vs 2yrs. Also less tuition.

INSEAD is ranked as the #1 business school in the world by FT.

Whether you prefer FT rankings, or businessweek or the Economist is up to you. The point is that it is one of the top schools in the world.

That said while the top consulting firms in the US all know and hire from INSEAD, the same is not true for other industries.

In Europe or Asia, INSEAD is the top choice

Insead is amazing. Ceibs and tsinghua are both decent in China. Oxford is ok

If your plan is to get into US after MBA, then you are better off going to INSEAD or LBS (possibly other top 5 global programs). Yes, they are ranked high but that's how name recognition/reputation works. Otherwise you should target a US school.

Thoughts on a PT MBA (Kellogg, HAAS, Booth) vs. T14 full time MBA. I am a consultant in S& that makes over $200k+ a year right now and will make $300+ in 2 years or so (will be SM by then). If I left PwC for a full time MBA, I feel like I am setting myself back (e.g., full time MBA, maybe switch to MBB associate, etc. - which is an upgrade on prestige and a downgrade on comp.) Primary reason for the MBA is to get into a CXO role of a PE backed company someday.
