Babson vs. Northeastern vs. UConn [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2012, 17:55
I just wanted to hear your opinions among these three choices:

1: Babson with 50% tuition waiver
2: Northeastern with 75% tuition waiver
3: UConn with full waiver + stipend

I understand that Babson is probably the strongest brand, but is it worth the extra expense?
Northeastern has a great corporate residency program and contacts to industries all around Boston. UConn is a decent school in the Northeast as well. Ranking wise I believe UConn and Northeastern are all around Top 50 while Babson ranks among Top 30 (#1 in Entrepreneurship)

Any input would be appreciated ... as far as my career goals: I don't want to go into Finance, MBB, or IB, but rather go into E-Commerce or IT Consulting.

In the latest US news ranking:
56) northeastern
61) Babson
61) Uconn

So in other words, no difference ranking wise, so at the point you need to decide which school is the best fit, I wouldn't put any out in front of any other...

With babson, it seems that you need to have an entrepreneurial mindset going in, I think fit is a HUGE part of picking that program. If the plan is to work in boston post grad, I'd go for Babson or Northeastern...

Northeastern's students are young. Average age is 25, also almost 50% of their students have a business undergrad... which leads me to believe there are many students right out of school. That's a huge turnoff for me personally, BUT it may not be for you. Also, since their students have less experience, they make less out of the gate.

Also, UConn and Northeastern's class sizes are small, around 50 or 60. (I don't know much about UConn)

I'd say babson's network is a bit stronger too. I don't know how any rank on you're specific goals though. I'd say you should reach out to the schools.
