Kelley,Indianapolis or Anderderson, New Mexico [#permalink] New post 11 Apr 2013, 16:04
I got admission offer from both Kelley School of Business and Anderson School of Management, University of New Mexico.
Anderson offered me a tuition waiver of $11,000 and still I have to pay $ 19,227. On the other hand Kelley offered me 35% tuition waiver on international tuition rate. Thus, I have to pay $25,600 to Kelley School of Business.

I am confused where should I go?
Can anybody provide any insight? Which one would be better? Which one has higher ranking in Accounting?
Moreover, how can I manage the rest of the funding?

I am offered admission for Master of Science in Accounting and I am an international student.

I am and Anderson undergrad but intend to do a masters out of state. I can try to answer any questions about Anderson you might have.

I have no preference over states. I almost know nothing about the job opportunity of New Mexico or Indianapolis. Which state will give an MS in accounting graduate better opportunity? How Anderson graduates are doing in New Mexico and in other states?
Can you please give insight in terms of BIG 4 and other financial or multinational companies?

Moreover, is it possible to manage $19000 working on campus at Anderson as grad student?

Right off the bat, if you are looking for Big 4 as well as large industry firms, UNM isn't going to be for you. Recruitment is a bit lacking to say the least. I majority of the public accounting recruiting goes to KPMG, Moss Adams, Clifton Larson Allen, and REDW. No other large accounting firms recruit here. Also, the offices the firms I mentioned recruit for are not large offices, so you will be competing for a small number of spots with the states 2 public universities and a few schools in Colorado.

Now, if you are okay taking a job at a small company here in New Mexico, or a state job, then okay. But a warning, NM can be very insular.

The way UNM grads get jobs outside of state is by making connections early on in the their undergrad and leverage them into positions later on. The reason I am going to do a masters at a better program is to capitalize on that programs recruiting.

I suggest taking your other offer because it gives you access to larger markets. However, I can't say anything about their recruiting.

I'd go to Kelley hands down. The 6k or so isn't that much of a difference in the long run and Kelley is a very well-known school and near bigger markets. If down the road you want to switch into industry finance or even investment banking, Kelley also has a really good network for those positions as well and you will at least be able to tap into that network. IMO, Kelley is in a similar tier of schools as UT-Austin, USC, Michigan, Notre Dame, UNC, Virginia, etc. for masters of accounting schools where if you get into one of those, you should probably go there unless you're dead-set on purely accounting as a career (and your local school has enough recruiting for the B4) or the cost is just too prohibitive. Schools like these will not only give you a greater than 50-50 chance with any of the B4, but they will also open up doors to just about any office in the nation based on the prestige of the school, they will give you an outside chance at Advisory roles at the B4 (aka not just audit/tax but the higher-paying, more interesting jobs as well), and will give you a really good network to reach out to if you decide to change your mind about accounting.

Good luck with your decision.

Kudos! But,I wonder whether Kelley, Indianapolis and Kelly, Bloomington are of the same level and whether Kelley,Indianapolis can be compared with UT-Austin/Notre Dame.

Note: I got the offer from Kelley,Indianapolis.
