The first question you should be asking is where do you want to work after the master's program?? If you want to work in Argentina or South America then maybe you should go for an MBA in Argentina. The reality is the wealthiest and most competitive MBA students in Latin America go to business schools in the US or the top programs in Europe (IE, IESD etc), not Argentina. While and MBA in Argentina might be cool if you plan on working in Argentina long-term I don't recommend it if you want to return to the states in the next 5 years.jb5 said:For a good American student (ivy league) seeking a masters in something related to business that will be taken seriously, is there any school other than UBA to look at?
The reality is everyone is going back to school now, especially in the US. A recruiter faced with a stack of resumes is going to immediately be drawn to an MBA from Chicago, Stanford, Wharton, etc. While it's great you'll be learning Spanish and might be fluent after the program ends, there are no shortage of people, at least in the US, who are bilingual in Spanish and have an MBA. And when it comes down to it a recruiter will put more weight into a graduate of Wharton than a bilingual applicant, especially in Spanish. Brazilian Portuguese & especially Chinese are more in demand only because fewer people speak it.
Not trying to knock your aspirations but I was looking at doing an MBA in Argentina and ultimately realized that while a bit cheaper, it's relatively worthless outside of Argentina and the surrounding area. As I said earlier if you're looking to live in Argentina long-term then getting an MBA in Argentina is not a bad idea. But my recommendation is that you look at programs in Spain if you're set on getting and MBA, getting international experience and learning Spanish. Two of the top business schools in Europe are in Spain (Madrid & Barcelona).
