Yes the job market right now is bad all over the country and Phoenix likes to be one of the top on such things. I am actually an IT major and have been in that field only. So I am not sure which one will give you better options. As you mentioned I too am imagining that ASU caters more to the local job market than Thunderbird. Given that you are from Phoenix area, you might want to visit ASU and talk to some of the current students. I did that with the schools I am applying to and it did gave me additional insight on the college. Not sure of local internships too ... Sorry couldnt be of much help here.
Thanks for the info Shiva. I know the job market is really bad in Phoenix at the moment. However, do you know what area/s would be good to go into if I would like to stay in the Phoenix area upon graduation? One would imagine that ASU caters more to the local job market than Thunderbird, however, I can't be sure. I also don't know the right people to ask. Is Supply Chain Management in high demand in the Phoenix area or does ASU just happen to have a strong program in that specialty? Also, do you have any recommendations for local internships?
