i need to make a decision soon bw tulane freeman mba and vanderbilt owen mba. have been accepted to both, with scholarship to both, but tulane is offering more money. however, i would like to go into the healthcare field, and owen offers a specialization in healthcare.
any help would be appreciated.
Here's what you shoudl look at:
- List at recruiting data for the two schools in the health care field.
- Next look at the curriculum. It seems that Vandie has the edge since it has the specialization, but do your homework. Are the courses what you want to study. Does Tulane have similar courses?
- Look at extra-curriucular clubs, events, and activities related to your goals. Which school's appeals more?
- Personal preferences? Would you rather be in New Orleans or Nashville?
If the difference in money is not that significant, I would pay more attention to the factors I listed above, especially the first one, then the difference in cost.
