Goizueta vs. Wash U (Olin) w/ Scholarship Money [#permalink] New post 30 May 2013, 11:50
Hello,

Yesterday I was notified that I was accepted into the Two-Year Full-Time MBA program at Emory's Goizueta school of business off the wait list. Additionally I am also accepted to Wash U Olin with a scholarship that is a little less than one full year of tuition. I am planning on studying marketing, and will be looking for a job in Brand management.

Additionally, I am from New York, and I will be looking to return to the Northeast following my MBA. It seems that both schools are pretty regional, but do you think that it will be easier to get back to the Northeast from Goizueta over Olin?

Academically, both schools seem very similar.

Please let me know your thoughts on whether I should pass up my scholarship at Olin, and attend Goizueta with no scholarship money.

Thanks in advance for all of your helpful information.


Sincerely,

BKane86

Hi Bkane86,

As per US B-School ranking Emory Goizueta is on 18th rank and and Olin is 21st. Emory is definitely a good business school but if you are getting scholarship more than 50% I would suggest you to go for Olin in that case.

You can also get in touch with the alumnus of Olin and Emory to get to know more about the business school and its focus towards marketing.

Hope it helps.

Feel free to write further queries if you have.

Cheers!
Neha Singh

Hi Bkane86,

Congratulations - the long journey is coming to a close! I would recommend you pursue Emory and here's why:

1) There is a stigma associated with top 20, non-top 20. 18 puts you in the game. You might not think 3 rank points to 21 makes much of a difference, but it may one day. If you can go top 20 - always do.

2) While both have regional networks, Emory has an incredibly strong (albeit small) network in the NE. The reason for this is because Emory (undergrad and MBA) places a lot of students in the northeast in both Finance and Marketing.

I understand the money component can definitely seem like a big differentiator now but if you are looking at a field that takes only a few from the best and brightest (e.g. Marketing) the brand of your MBA matters.

If you have any questions about what I wrote above, just let me know!

Go to Emory. It is the better school for you (marketing/brand management) as well as having a better network in the northeast.
