Michigan or Georgetown for Economic Development [#permalink] New post 10 Aug 2007, 16:48
I am interested in pursuing a career in international development. My idea is to essentially consult with carious NGOs, governments and businesses on development issues. I also would not rule out working for the likes of the World Bank, IMF, UN for the experience and connections. I would not rule out a private sector job if that would give me the experience to maker a stronger candidate for development jobs.

I was admitted to Michigan and Georgetown and cant decide which one to attend. Georgetown is more focused on international issues and is of course located in the center for international development. There is a strong core of students interested in development related careers, and professors with international experience and connections to the development field. However, Michigan will perhaps offer a better business education, will have smarter students, is better run and organized, more prestigious in general (but dont know if it is more prestigious when it comes to international matters). After all, I am getting an MBA to apply business methods to development, not to learn about development.

Ultimately, I wonder if Georgetown's location, program focus and connections will trump Michigan's academic standards, training, and reputation when it comes to getting a job in international development.

Oh, by the way, I do not have a background in international development, or anything quantitative - I was a corporate attorney.

Also, I did not score very highly in the quantitative portion of the GMAT, and do not have strong quant skills. I know that Michigan doesnt grade, so I am wondering if this will help or hinder me - help because I wont have to disclose low quant grades, or hinder because I will have to disclose low quant GMAT.

Thanks.
