Kryzak's Battle Royale 2: Haas vs Kellogg vs Anderson [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2008, 23:56
Alright, many of you with access to my profile already have seen the debate, but since this "help me decide" thing is so popular, I'm going to join in. Throw in any comments you may have, but here's the 911 on me, simplified from the one on my profile. If you want a more in depth discussion, go to my profile. If you just want to throw in your 2 cents (literally I mean 2 cents), then vote here.

Goals: Tech management or Tech Entrepreneurship (most likely the later), potential international business in Asia. I want to work in California after graduating, for sure.

Haas Strengths:
1. Weather
2. Location (for future work)
3. Strength in Tech and Entrepreneurship
4. "Ranked" #7 now, potential M8 school
5. Smaller program
6. Scholarship (50% - <10% selectivity)
7. Parent School Strength (Berkeley)
8. Well known in Asia

Kellogg Strengths:
1. Better General Management and Strategy
2. Higher General School Rank, UE school
3. Larger alumni network
4. Private School Resources
5. Scholarship (50% - < 4% selectivity)
6. Adds to my existing school networks (Diversify)

Anderson Strengths:
1. Very strong Entrepreneurship (though not in tech)
2. International programs are strong, especially in Asia and Latin America
3. Scholarship (2/3, not sure of selectivity)
4. Adds to my existing school networks (diversify)
5. Larger alumni network (than Haas)
6. Weather is amazing (though smoggy)

alright, let the Battle Royale 2 commence! :P

Hi,
coming from someone who has just put in his first post today, this may not carry much weight. However my vote goes for Haas purely from the perspective of your goals. Also in India (I work in a bank in India), Berkeley is highly regarded amongst tech entrepreneurs especially when they come to banks for funding.

Refraining from voting since I dont know enough about that field of pursuit and each schools strength. However, I would say that you dont need to really consider UCLA, so its really a two horse race in my mind. Though I am pretty confident I could win a bet on where you are going to go.

Definitely Haas. It's a great school for you want to do, is on the rise as you pointed out, and is in one of the best areas in the country. I should have applied there >.<

I voted Kellogg. Yes it is cold! But, it is just 21 months. I always think it is best to diversify your school portfolio (that way you dont seem more open minded and not stuck in your Berkeley comfort zone). I know goals matter, but I think it boils down to the individual once you are at a top school.

Sorry, UCLA is not in the running in my opinion. I have to vent because after experiencing the incompetence of the admissions office, I promptly decided not to attend (I even cancelled my ticket to the diversity weekend). I know what the say dont judge a program by a few individuals but I could not help it.

K, you know how I feel about this. Haas :-D

Seriously, I think you could do amazing things coming from any of those programs. But given your future plans, I think Haas will give you your best shot.

I say Haas, and from your explanation of each school it's pretty obvious you do too. List Haas first, comment about the weather, but do not list that as a plus for Anderson, come on. :wink: Good luck to you werever you decide!

If I try to type a detailed response on this thread also, my fingers will curse me. So, you know my opinion (Go read it again on your profile thread, baby) .. Haas all the way!! Although this means that I won't be seeing you in my neighborhood :(

If he wants to be in tech, I don't know why he'd want to get away from a tech-guy image. :)

WOW! that was a lot of votes in 8 hours! Thanks everyone!

Oh yeah, forgot about weather for UCLA... though it is a bit too warm down there compared to the Bay Area, and the smog. :P

Kidderek, I'm leaning Haas right now, though a lot of the admitted student webpage things are definitely impressive for Kellogg, which is why I had the "private school" comment.

mNeo and nervous (and maybe NC if he chooses Ross), I will definitely miss you guys if I go to Haas, but either you guys really believe Haas is better or you just don't want me around in the same town. hahahaha :lol:

river, you probably will win that bet. Odds are good for you. :)

Kryzak,

I voted Haas. I have very similar goals to yours, entrepreneurship and Asia development, which helps me draw the same conclusion as yours about Haas. Kellogg is higher ranked and is private, but in Asia it simply does not have the same cachet as Berkeley. Hell, my grandmother in China knows what Berkeley is but when I told her I was going to Northwestern undergrad she had no idea where that was :)

In my opinion Haas is better for entrepreneurship. But I think if you are looking to expand your horizons you might meet very different people at Kellogg, and probably get to explore some different career fields. But if you are 100% set on tech management, then I would go with Haas.

If you want to stay in the tech industry I would go with Haas from the information I have gathered. However, I do not think you could go wrong with either.

Imagine ... Kryzak goes to Haas and after taking a few courses and getting exposed to people from all kinds of backgrounds, he realizes that he wants to pursue a career in Marketing. He starts talking to recruiters, and they tell him, "Dude, with your non-marketing background, you should have applied to Kellogg to get top Marketing jobs." :twisted:

yeah, that would SUCK big time... :twisted:

I sat at a Marketing table at Anderson, and will do the same at Haas and Kellogg just to see if there's any off chance that I like marketing. Marketing is important for any thing you do (including entrepreneurship), but I don't know if I would do pure marketing/brand management.
