Babson MBA or Kelley MBA? [#permalink]
12 Jan 2011, 07:16
Just wanted to get your inputs. I have admits from both Babson 2 year MBA and Kelley MBA. I have 50 % tuition waiver at babson but no scholarship at Kelley. Its tough to decide where to go.
My background - Entrepreneur with own venture in tech, also part of a family business in construction. Goals- To return to the family business and tech firm around 3-5 years after MBA.
The main issue is I may want to have a corporate experience and work with some firm before returning. So the reputation and recruitment attractiveness become important. (Babson was the clear choice if i were to return immediately after MBA)
With the scholarship, I am inclined towards Babson but wanted your inputs about its brand and whether the students find jobs after graduation. Please advice

I would choose Babson.
1) Scholarship money 2) You want to go there 3) Great brand in entrepreneurship
It seems like you're out-thinking yourself here because you might want to work corporate for a little bit before returning home. I'm not going to sit here and say all corporate jobs suck, but I don't think some grand experience is awaiting you in a corporate middle-management job for random company X. And the difference between Babson and Kelley in acquiring one of those jobs, if there even is one, isn't significant enough to sway where you go to school.
I live/work in the midwest, and I can tell you that to the lay businessman here in Kansas City, an Indiana MBA would be seen on par with a Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, or Nebraska MBA. Probably the only place in the country anyone would associate Indiana with any kind of significant brand value is the state of Indiana.
