I need your help regarding my school selection.
I have two offers currently..One from MSU Broad and another from PSU Smeal. I am planning for a career in supply chain management in US post MBA. Money wise, at both the schools, I will have to spend almost same amount. I am an Indian candidate.
I see that Broad is better ranked then Smeal in most of the rankings. However, I learnt that Pennsylvania has better weather when compared to Michigan. I wanted to know which would be a better school for me considering the fact that I am an international student and I am interested in a career in Supply Chain Management.
Could you share your thoughts on these two schools and help me out in deciding which school to attend.
The stats for both programs are very similar in terms of operations job placement and salary; the only significant difference I saw was a $6K difference in average other guaranteed compensation (MSU wins that one). Another big difference I see is the job offer rate: MSU has a 13% high job offer by graduation rate.
While it is very cold in Michigan in the winter, it is not typically warm in Pennsylvania during the winter, so I don't think that this should play a major role in your decision. I do, on the other hand, feel that fit with a program and its campus life are critical, so I do recommend you try to visit and/or speak to current students about life on campus and where you will feel most at home.
