There is a not insignificant difference b/w these schools for top finance job recruiting. If you want to go into IB, then Haas is probably fine, though you might have an easier time at Booth. If you want IM (including Hedge Funds) Booth would be my decision. Several elite firms only come to Chicago and a few other select schools for IM recruiting (this includes firms on the West coast and in the bay area.) If you want VC then I would go to Haas. If you want PE I would probably go to Booth, but I think network is going to be more important here than which school. Disclosure: Booth admit, pre-MBA PE, post-MBA IM/HF in CA (hopefully) Agreed. Thank you. When you're in Finance, money should not be a deciding factor on where you go to school. I tried to look at this comparison by taking money out of the picture -- which is really how you should look at it. Finance people are lot more brand-oriented than other fields. Taking$100k over a better brand would be a very short sighted decision if you plan to spend your whole career in Finance.

I did some grad work at Haas when I was doing grad studies at Berkeley, and I'm heading to Booth in the fall with some change. That said, I'm bias towards Booth, but if I was in the poster's position, I would choose Haas. I know plenty of people that came form the program who are in very intersting finance positions. There may, however, be a regional bias, from Haas, you can nab finance positions in CA without much issue...if you want to be on the east coast, Booth will likely win hands down...additionally, the large IBs will recruit much more heavily from Booth.

Booth for me, but my financial situation may be different as I have most of my tuition already saved up.

I wouldn't go from a Globally recognized top tier to a regional (US level elite) especially if you do intend to goto another country. The ranking bias abroad is much more significant unfortunately.
