help with school choice. [#permalink] New post 16 Feb 2009, 20:36
If I am extremely mobile, which MBA program is pretty much the best 'bang for the buck' in the U.S?

What I"m looking for:
-a degree from a solid school that can land me a decent job with competitive salary. I plan to do part time, but the goal is for a career change.
-I'm worried about the tuition the most. I'm assuming that most of the IVY and the private schools are out of the question as these are 80k+.

What about state schools? Ideally, I want to stay in the 25k to 45k, range.

Again, something not too expensive, but has a solid name for networking and future job opportunities.

Generally speaking, doing a part-time MBA and changing careers are mutually exclusive goals. PT programs will not give you access to the recruiters and other on-campus opportunities they give to their FT students.

As far as public schools, there are lots of good ones out there -- Michigan, UNC, Haas, and Anderson come immediately to mind. To hit your target range for tuition, you may have to move to the state and work before attending so you can establish residency.

I would also recommend researching the public MBA programs in your state -- look at what companies hire there, and for what functions. If you want to work at a local company rather than going into banking or management consulting, a local public program might be a good fit.
