A Case for Santa Clara [#permalink] New post 05 Dec 2007, 17:42
I know that Santa Clara is only a Part Time program so that in itself might take it out of the running for near elite schools but I thought I would state some points to have it considered.

Santa Clara is ranked 14th by US News for part time programs for 2007. It has such alumni as the CFOs of Google, Ebay, Macy' and Verisign to name a few. The ex CFO for 3Com teaches accounting at the school for crying out loud. The average post graduate salary range is at the high 80's to low 90's. It is in the heart of Silicon Valley where job prospects are a bound. The school is currently in the process of building a state of the art new business school and a state of the art new library, both of which will be done by early 2008.

I know that Santa Clara is largely overshadowed by Stanford and Berkley both of which are in a totally different league, but I think Santa Clara has made some major strides in its reputation especially in the Bay Area. Any thoughts on this? Hjort would love to hear what you think.

I'm glad that you posted this. Santa Clara does indeed appear to be a good choice for students who are already in the Bay Area. One of the interesting aspects of the Bay Area is that it has a very bimodal distribution of MBA programs: a few Ultraelite/Elite MBA programs, no TE or NE programs, and a cluster of respectable but less well know programs.

Santa clara is good option for ppl who want to accelarate their growth in companies..i dont think its a good option for a total career change.

One gets a clear understanding if he takes a closer look at its placement stats.

How strong is Santa Clara's alumni network?
