    IESE vs. IE Business School (PhD in Management)

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi,

    I have got admission to both, IESE & IE business school for their phd program and need help in deciding which one to go for.

    My focus is on Quant (Marketing or Strategic Management).

    Are these schools considered good for their PhD programs? Their MBA rankings are very high (Top 10 Globally) and their professors are doing work that really interests me. However, are these considered competitive programs, compared to top American schools?

    I am leaning towards IESE but with the political situation in Barcelona, I am having some doubts - is this something to be concerned about?

    Thanks for your input!

    Looking at PhD rankings (read UT Dallas journal rankings), for strategy focus, probably IESE is better. For marketing, I don't see a big difference. But still IESE is a better school and a better PhD program. Having said that neither would be comparable to top US schools.

    Having lived and worked in Barcelona, I prefer it to other cities in continental Europe. Having worked with plenty of IESE MBAs and few professors, from a commercial perspective, I find them top notch. Agreed it is not a replacement for academic success, but still an indirect indicator.

    In my view, academia is above politics, so don't think the political situation would be an issue. Weather wise Barcelona is better.
