ForumWatch: U.S. Or U.K.?

Posted by: Geoff Gloeckler on July 8, 2011

Yachting2015, a Bloomberg Businessweek Business Schools Forum user, recently asked people to weigh in on which Executive MBA programs in the United Kingdom would help him move there from the United States. Currently working in a hedge fund in the US, Yachting2015 wants to go abroad.

What’s interesting about this post is that someone working in the US is wishing to work in Europe. Often, on the forums, participants come seeking advice on how to do the opposite.

The best advice so far is to recognize how the location of an EMBA program has a direct influence on one’s post-graduation network. What other tips would you offer to Yachting2015? Which UK EMBA programs would you recommend? Share your thoughts at the “US to UK” discussion thread.
