I have a related post in the General B-School section, but I wanted to further drill down and ask folks who might have some PT MBA specific knowledge. For my background and what I am trying to do, please read: roi-80954.html
Basically I am considering a PT MBA at Boston College or New York University because I have secured sponsorship support for my employer and could continue to work/operate my business. Since I live in Boston, BC would be the easier option, however I know that NYU-Stern has weekend classes and it is a stronger program. I wouldn’t mind going down to NYC over the weekend and staying over at my parent’s house while taking classes.
Since I am currently working in non-profit finance and interested in shifting over to Investment Management, I am thinking that NYU’s NYC location might be an advantage but I am concerned about the career switch:
1. I understand that the Langone program participants don’t get the career services support.
2. If I am taking classes on the weekends, I won’t have the opportunity to really be out and about in NYC during the weekdays (unless I take days off from work).
Shifting over to BC, it would be the more convenient option, but can anyone comment on the feasibility of finding the right job in IM in the Boston area? Also, I am not sure how BC’s PT MBA program is seen locally.
Also, any advice or tips on career switching while doing a PT-MBA program?
Before success comes in any man's life he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do.
