PPE vs french business school Watch

University Navigation

    • Thread Starter

    Hi !
    I am a French student with offers for PPE at UCL (firm) and Warwick (insurance) which I am very excited about ! But I also have the opportunity to prepare entrance to the top French business schools (HEC, ESSEC, ESCP). I don't really know what I want to do : I'm interested in management/entrepreneurship in high tech companies, consultancy/finance and the public sector (international institutions)
    The B schools graduates are highly employable in France and place very well in the city but aren't very well known overseas.
    I know I will enjoy PPE but I would like to have doors opened to as many sectors / countries as possible.
    I would be interested in knowing what you think about it.
    Also I know it is difficult to compare the two options (3 yrs vs 5 yrs) but after PPE I would like to have a masters from a top uk/us university/science po or maybe try to get into a French business school (but probably not as good as if I took the regular path though)

    Which of these options open the most doors, knowing that I want to work abroad (usa or Asia) but that I would like to be employable in France as well and that I am equally interested in both ? (I would study the PPE component during the 2 yrs preparation to B school exams, but the UK uni experience is very tempting)
