Haas PT or Anderson PT for me? [#permalink] New post 10 Aug 2013, 10:45
I have the option to work out of the LA or the Silicon Valley office. As I work, I plan to get my PT MBA from one of these schools. Which one do you recommend given my situation?

I am a 28 year old male
I plan to concentrate in finance and entrepreneurship for my MBA degree. I am not a career switcher so PT works for me. I am going to continue in finance and/or entrepreneurship as my career. I would like to eventually work in East Asia or Southern California.

How much of a brand and recruiting advantage does Haas have over Anderson if I want to have a possible career in East Asia? My goal is to go to East Asia soon after I finish the PT MBA program and work there for a few years. Then I plan to come back to California (preferably Southern California). Would getting my MBA from Haas open more doors for me over Anderson throughout my career? I prefer living in SoCal over NorCal by a mile. However, I'm willing to make short-term sacrifices.

Hi there,

The short answer is Haas. It's a higher ranked program over all and it has brand recognition that is difficult to match. Also, it's ranked the top part time MBA and that is a difficult thing to achieve. Anderson is a top 5 PT program too but if you're looking to do PT, go for pedigree.

Even in SoCal, a Haas MBA will carry the weight you're looking for throughout your career.

I know this post is short but that's because there isn't much else to say :)! They're both great options but Haas should be your primary objective.
