Arizona State University vs. Thunderbird [#permalink] New post 28 Nov 2009, 00:10
Which is the better school? I live in the Phoenix area and Thunderbird is regarded by locals as the more prestigious school. However, the full-time program at Arizona State University is much more selective in terms of GMAT, GPA, etc. Any thoughts???

Hi
I live in phoenix too and am a MS graduate from ASU. This is from what I have heard from others mostly and might not be totally true.

Thunderbird is real good for International Business Management program. ASU is known for its Supply Chain management. Other programs are decent in ASU. So depending on what you want to do you may want to decide.

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?

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.
