I have finished my International Business Administration (Bachelor) with dinstinction, and I am currently applying for two universities in Amsterdam - UVA and VU.
Now I need to make the following choice: UVA is slightly more international accreditable compared to the VU university, but on national level it is not significant. This is due to the fact that the UVA university has its own "business school", and therefore selective.
On the other hand, the VU university has a Master in Business Adminstration, offering a special track in management consulting. They really focus on this branch only and work more together with firms as the university is positioned in the heart of the business park. Besides that, it will be easier for me to get good grades.
The master that I want to do at the UVA university is called Strategy, which is to be known as a tough study among local students (meaning 8's and 9's are rather 6's and 7's). Overall this university and master are highly reputable.
Now I know that for consulting firms grades are of utmost importance. What would be the best choice for me to make as a independent observer of this story? Taking into consideration that at the UVA university with the strategy master I will have a better study, but more chance of getting regular grades.
Thanks in advance!
