iowa tippie or tcu neeley [#permalink] New post 20 Dec 2012, 17:49
hi, guys. I recently got admitted by both tippie and neeley with full scholarship. While neeley is in DFW area and Iowa is in iowa city. I am an international sutdent with little knowledge about American cities. I know tippie might have a stronger reputation than neeley. But iowa city is in country side.

American friends, could you give me some advice? my goal is to find a job in US after graduation.

Thank you.

Between the two I would vote Neeley. I do not think that Iowa provides that much "branding" and neely would provide you the opportunity to network in Dallas (of course, this assumes you would want to work in Dallas). In my opinion I do not differentiate between the two schools, but I think the location of neeley would be an asset (again, assuming you like Dallas). I have a friend that went to Iowa and he tells me that it's a great college town, but just slightly secluded, which may be good or bad for you depending on your goals, situation, and preferences.

Hard to answer without more information. And just my two cents so take it for what it is worth.

Have you looked into other programs such as Kelly or any where else? I just ask because if you are getting full scholarships you must be pretty competitive.

Regardless, congratulations!!!

Thank you, but I am not that competitive. Job opportunity is on the top of my considerations. I also got admitted by SMU COX with 8w/2y, william&Mary with 4w, and still wait for notre dame. I do not have a TOFEL score and just applied for those waived the requirement based on my GMAT and past experience. I find neeley's ranking increases these years, but Tippie stays firmly within the first 50s. If for true there is no brand difference between the two, I will follow neeley. Thank you.

Being from DFW, I can tell you that the SMU MBA has very strong connections in Dallas. I don't know anything about Neeley. Is SMU not an option?

SMU is very expensive, even after 4w scholarship a year. This is also what I am considering. There are rice, austin, smu better than TCU in texas, while in iowa, tippie is the best. Another consideration is that TIPPIE is public and TCU is private. Does it matter in US? Thank you.

Well between Tippie and TCU, I'd definitely go with TCU. I'm biased because I live in Dallas, but it's amazing to see how this city does business. Companies seem to be relocating every week, and the ones already here are growing at a monstrous pace.

I don't think you'd have much of a problem finding work in DFW after your MBA at TCU. If you're looking to move elsewhere, you may have a problem. Let me know if you'd like to know anything more about Dallas/Fort Worth.

Congratulations on your admissions and scholarships! Is there any industry preference that you have? Iowa will definitely have better MidWest connections whereas TCU will have better Texas connections. If you are interested in agribusiness or automotive you can probably find better opportunities after a Tippie MBA; if you are interested in Oil and Gas, Technology, Health Care then TCU will probably be the better choice. Frankly, you will probably have better career prospects in the latter category.

I was born and raised in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and I definitely think SMU's program has a better reputation than TCU's. That said, I agree with other posters that if you want to stay in DFW, TCU isn't a bad place to go. I think nationwide, though, Iowa has a better reputation than TCU.

TCU is honestly a small, private Christian college (not super parochial, though) that many people go to if they are Fort Worth natives. It is not particularly diverse.

I know Tippie is out in the middle of nowhere, but it is a college town, so it's not like there's absolutely nothing to do. In general, though, I think it does have the stronger brand name.


This.

I am midwestern, so I mostly targeted midwestern schools. My understanding is anything outside of the top 15-25, you're going to get more regional recruiting exposure. You have to decide where you want to work and in what industry. I visited Iowa city, its a big college town, nowhere near what you'd get in Dallas but they place well in Chicago and Minneapolis. Personally, for me, I wanted to stay in the midwest, so a good program with really generous financial aid in the midwest made them my top choice.
