Hi,

I've just got an acceptance from Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa. Scholarship details would be revealed in early summer, so at this time, I just need to reserve my seat with a $300 payment.

Although I researched a lot about this program, but based on your experience, what would you like to say about it, in context of employment opportunities for International students? IT/Technology Consulting is my immediate post-MBA goal, and I plan to work 2-3 in the US before returning back to India.

Secondly, I've got a "preferred applicant for Scholarship" email from the University of San Diego MBA program. I can't find the school in any rankings, but if I get a good scholarship and do an MBA from there, I'll most likely be getting a job in Silicon Valley, which is a hub of Technology/IT.

Is the trade-off between ranking and location worth it?

Best Regards,
Eeshan

Eeshan,

I really don't know enough about employment opportunities for international students at these two programs to comment. If I were you I would do the following:

1) I would study the employment reports for these two programs thoroughly. Ask to speak or correspond with recent grads, preferably Indians, who are working in the tech consulting firms you would like to work at when you graduate. Ask them about their experience at the schools.
2) Secondly, speak to alumni in India about their views on the alumni network and the value of the degree in India.

Regards,
Linda
