Already got accepted. Now, which MBA program is better?? [#permalink] New post 14 Apr 2011, 04:30
I applied to MBA programs with a 640 GMAT on first attempt, didn't have time for a second attempt and 3.85 cumulative GPA in undergraduate college. I am just starting to get the decisions back at this point and so far I've been accepted into CUNY Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business, the flex-time full time program and University of Denver full time MBA program. I should also find out from Rollins College MBA within the next day and based on the interview, it seems fairly promising that I'll get in. Lastly, I am also waiting for a decision from University of Pittsburgh, Katz School of Business which won't come in until May 6th.

Now, here comes the fun part. Assuming I get into the two decisions I am waiting for, which one of the four is better? Is any of the programs exceptionally better than the others? One of the factors that goes into consideration is I live in New York, so if I were to go to Baruch, I'd be paying in state student tuition and I'd have no living expenses as I'd just commute from my parents' house. Anyway, guys, I just want to hear your opinions on these programs and if you'd recommend one over the other and why. Thanks for viewing and I appreciate any replies.

I think these schools are probably getting more of the smaller, regional companies to recruit at. I wouldn't necessarily think you'd have a certain edge by attending one and not the other. I think you brought up some good points about Baruch and with just your reasoning alone, it would push Baruch as the final one had it been my choice.

Hi devarinti,

I believe the best way to decide which MBA program to attend is to determine which industry and companies you would be interested in working for post-graduation, and then seeing which MBA career center best aligns you with these goals. If you know there are certain companies you would like to work for, call the career centers and ask if the companies recruit from the school. This will give you the best insight into the MBA program you should choose.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
