Hi everyone!

I'm trying to find out if MBB in Australia view the M7 schools in the US or LBS/INSEAD in Europe equivalent to local brands like AGSM for MBA recruiting, assuming the applicant has working rights for Aus obviously.

If anyone has any insight into brand perception, hiring split from various schools, etc that would be immensely helpful.

Thanks so much!

Hello!

Top programs are top programs, all world arround.

For this precisely you should look into the global rankings:

  • Financial Times
  • Poets and Quants

The only thing that changes after is the network, more oriented to one region or the other.

Hope it helps!

Cheers,

Clara

Hi, I would say they valuate top10 programs better than local schools in CV screening. However, as well as any other country, top local MBA are much appreciated. Feel free to text me for any additional tips, I have supported tens of MBA graduates in securing their offers in MBB

Hi there,

They view them much more highly.

There general rule is: If you want to work in Europe, go to a European school, if you want to work in Australia, go to an Australian school, but, if you want to work anywhere in the world, go to an American school....M7 is recognized globally and viewed as top-tier world-wide.

Hello,

The best way is to ask directly the HR of a local office. Don't you have any connection? They are usually really happy to help candidates that want to reinforce their CVs before applying.
Anyway "local" Top MBA schools are always appreciated by offices in the same country.

BEst.
