Part Time B-School - NYU or Fordham?? [#permalink] New post 01 Dec 2005, 11:16
This forum is always a great way to get advice quickly. I just found out in the past 2 days that I got into NYU and Fordham for part-time b-school. While it's a no-brainer that NYU is the better school (and #1 in the US for part-time), I wanted to get everyone's thought on the financial and work aspects. NYU is about $1310/credit and Fordham is $825/credit. It's about $25k more for NYU. Pretty decent chunk of change. I should find out next week if my company is willing to pitch in (it's a small company). If they don't pay at all, I'm wondering if Fordham is a better choice (NYU seems to charge as much as they like and they know most companies for their employees to go there).

Fordham has risen in part-time rankings and still has an impressive list of professors (and you can switch to full-time at any point) and will probably be more manageable from a work/life perspective (or so I think). Right now, my job is busy enough, but I wouldn't classify it as excessively demanding but may become so in a year or two at which point classes would also become more difficult.

Thoughts greatly appreciated.

Assuming you plan on staying in/around the NY area, the difference may matter less. But from where I sit, I think that NYU is the far better school, in terms of reputation and program, and worth the extra $$. But don't just take my word for it!
