New York, NY [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2010, 15:28
I moved to New York for my undergrad and now I am interested getting an MBA. I ideally would like to stay in New York but find the MBA programs extremely competitive, as is all of New York. I did not get an 700 on my GMAT more like a 560, although I have 4.5 years experience and 3.48 GPA from Parsons (a top design school in New York). My undergrad degree is a BBA in Design and Management. I am interested in the rankings of MBA schools strictly within New York City, (perhaps I would consider good schools if they were within range of public transportation). Also do you know if there is any additional consideration for those who currently reside in NYC as it can be a difficult place for some to adjust to?

The only MBA programs that I know of in New York City are...

1. Columbia
2. NYU
3. Baruch
4. Fordham

Would you say that I listed the schools in order of what is most respected? Where would Pace fall in the list?

You may also consider Hofstra (Long Island) and St.Johns (Queens)

No idea on how they are ranked though

Set aside Pace, Hofstra and the others (though I am sure they are excellent programs). Seriously consider Zicklin at CUNY Baruch. Its actually a fantastic program, part-time or full-time. Many of the teachers are former faculty from the big three programs who wanted to give back to the public. And by give back, they mostly mean lifetime health benefits from NYC.

However, check it out. The name carries weight locally; as much, if not moreso than Pace or Hofstra.

Thank you for your comments. As a student of Parsons I know that a few of my business professors also worked at Baruch and also spoke highly of it. I was hestitant because it isn't that well known outside of the New York area although I planned to apply there and see what happens.

If you can raise your GMAT to low 600s, then there is a "fighting" chance for NYU part time

Just checked out US News and Reports for the top 100 MBA programs. I believe according to it, Hofstra beat out both Baruch and Fordham for the best schools 2009-2010.

Hofstra's Rank: 82
Fordham's Rank: 87
Baruch's Rank: 94

The only points I would make would be

1. When you get this far down the rankings, a 2 or 3 "point" differential or 10-15 "place" differential really doesn't mean that much and
2. Baruch's score seems to be hurt mainly because of admittedly shockingly-low recruitment statistics for its full time students (since the many more part time students, the vast majority of which presumably have jobs, aren't included in the numbers). The recruitment stats represent a significant chunk of the rankings and were the primary reasons why Wharton, for example, slipped this year for no apparent reason.

I'm not certain whether those recruitment statistics for Baruch are normal for the full-time program but you can see from the peer assessment/recruiter assessment Baruch is ranked on-par with Hofstra/Fordham and is a fraction of the cost. I can also tell you from personal experience the name means as much in the New York City area as those two universities, if not more. Unless you can point to a specific aspect of either the Hofstra or Fordham programs that will benefit you more than Baruch's, I would recommend anyone considering an MBA to keep the extra money and enroll at Zicklin, if accepted.
