i have admit from MBS. anyone in favour of my taking up the MBA there? it is ranked 69 in FT ranking.

can anyone compare it with the 15-25 US bschools. coz they will be my next target. and if MBS is as good as any of them, i will be better off there.

Also, because Australia is known for Finance, and i want to make a switch from IT to Fiannce.

any body having first hand experience about MBS education, reputation and placements?

i'd be greatful

I was actually just wondering how the schools in NZ and Australia stack up - obviously the U.S. has the edge but how good are these schools?

My knowledge of Australian schools is very limited. I have read a few things about them and that's what I'm writing here. It may be wrong, so please if anyone has some greater knowledge, do share it. My thoughts on both Australian MBAs and top 15 - 25 MBAs in the US:

1) The MBA degree is not so common and/or valued in Australia as it is in the US.
2) If you want to work outside of Australia the value of such an MBA will be quite limited.
3) If you want to work in the US as an international, top 15 - 25 schools will provide some decent chances.
Top 7 = very good changes (I reserve "excellent chances" for US citizens attending such schools).
Top 15 = good chances.
Top 15 - 25 = decent chances.
Top 50+ = marginal (negligible) chances.
Top 25 - 50? it depends a lot on the program and your previous knowledge, etc. Plus it depends on which rankings you are looking at. I, personally, use Hjort's cluster system:

http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=11922

Then you can check with schools are included into each cluster by checking the respective cluster forum.

4) Do check if the schools you intend to apply to in the US provide loans without US cosigners. If they don't, you may get in but will have to come up with the money by yourself.

Hope it helps. L.

My recommendation would be to apply to the top 20. Take up a b-school that is ranked 69th only if it is mpossible to get into a b-school that is ranked higher.
