Need suggestions for schools [#permalink] New post 06 Feb 2011, 03:28
Nationality : Nepalese
GMAT1 : 660(Q = 50 and V = 29)
GMAT2 : 730(Q = 50 and V = 38)

Currently , I am working for Computer Science Corporation in Chennai as an assistant software engineer . I did my B-tech in IT from some place in India.
My CGPI is 8.12/10 . I wanted to apply for MS in Finance and have shortlisted few schools as well . But it would be great if someone can evaluate my profile and suggests some suitable schools . Anyways , The following are schools which I have selected.

1 . Boston University : I received a mail from this uni urging me to apply to this program . They specifically mentioned that that they wanted a diversity in their program and me being a Nepalese would help . I don't if this is a genuine mail or they mail it to most of the people.

2 . Rensselaer Poly technique Uni

3 . CMU

4. Vanderbilt

5. Baruch.

6. UIUC

7. SDA Bocconi

8 . LSE

9 . LBS.

Hey Raths:
my initial observation is that your school choices tend to be a little all over the place -- especially with respect to geography. Besides learning a lot of hard-core financial concepts, I believe that the overarching goal here is to get a better and higher paying job. So I would encourage you to think about this -- attend a school that is located in a city or area that has access to the types of jobs and industries you want to get upon graduation. So, if you want to work on Wall Street, there is no sense in going to a school in Europe.
All in all, do not let the tail wag the dog. It is great that Boston University wants more Nepalese applicants. However, you need to recognize that that may not be an asset in your journey to build the career you want.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti

Hi Raths:
I believe you are asking for me to suggest a number of schools based on based on ROI. However, this is something that is impossible for me to do and have it be of any use for you. An ROI calculation requires that you estimate some sort of future value or return, given your investment in an MBA. You have to determine how much you think you will make in a future career. I can't really come up with this. Even if I were able to - it would still be a disservice to you - as you are the one who really needs to take an interest in figure out what you want to do and how much you will eventually be able to make doing it. So when you figure out what you will do with your MS in Finance degree, then estimate a salary and use an online ROI calculator to figure out your return.
Right now, I am only telling you that the probably of realizing this ROI is greater in locations where more jobs are located. If you find a school with a good return, then take the GRE and attend.
Good luck!

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
