For people unfamiliar with MBAs and bschools, I think Oxford Said and Cambridge Judge could also be recognized for the broader university name like Dartmouth or Cornell.

Isn’t this the one MBA program EY will always sponsor?

In general, MBAs outside of a very small group (HSW, Insead, maybe a few more) have better local brand than global. So Haas has extra value for Bay Area but less value in New York relative to, say, Columbia. Same with Ross for Chicago etc.

So with that in mind, getting an international MBA with the aim of working in the US after is normally a bad idea. Some quite competitive schools in Europe have no name value in the states. Therefore, you should do one of two things (if INSEAD and LBS aren’t options):
1) just go to MBA in the US. Much easier to get jobs.
2) go to an international MBA. Get a job for an American/multinational company after graduation near where your MBA was. Then transfer to the US after a couple of years

People who know top MBA school rankings, know IE and IESE (same with HEC and Bocconi). That said I think most people in the business world in the US don’t follow MBA rankings so I’d guess it would mostly just be people from Spain, and people who have worked with IE/IESE alumni before
