LBS MiM vs Columbia MPA [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2014, 17:32
Which program is better for strategy consulting? Specifically, energy/resources consulting.

For those of you not familiar with Columbia's MPA, it's housed in the School of International Affairs, and regarded within most IR circles to be a top-five program. They have an "Energy+Environment Management" concentration, with a handful of technical course offerings.

From what I gathered speaking with alum/professors/mentors:
LBS MiM ( 1 yr program )
- a truly international experience.
- ability to take finance electives.
- tight knit student body, great profs
Columbia MPA ( 2 yr program )
- also a very int'l experience (half of students are foreign)
- must take public affairs courses, leaves less room for concentration courses
- large class size. But professors are great.

My question is, who would a recruiter at a BCG, Booz, or even Accenture select given similar academic performance/extracurrics?

A bit about me. I'm 24. A US citizen with a economics degree from a top10 undergraduate program and 1 year work experience in insurance.

Must decide within 5 days. Appreciate your input.
