My primary motivation to get into a graduate degree course is mainly to get a break as a PM in the bay area. However, I would like to stay away from MS in Computer Science because I do not want to do a technical course right now. At the same time I do not want to over spend both time as well as money. Therefore I would love to go for a school in which I could get a scholarship.

So far I have narrowed down on California schools - Haas, Anderson and Marshall. I also want to apply to McCombs because of its association with tech sector. I am confused about other colleges.

Please advice
1) What other schools should I apply to for my goals to stay within tech industry?
2) I am not aiming for the top 10 schools except Haas. Am I aiming too low?
3) Any other courses I should consider? (I am already applying for MEM courses)
4) Does it make sense to study from East Coast if my target is to work in California after MBA?

Let's get straight to the point man!

1. Stanford, Tepper and Georgia Tech
2. Not necessarily. You CAN with your GMAT reasonably apply anywhere, but given your profile the going might still be tough. But if I were you I would add at least Stanford to the list, cause they are sooo strong in tech, and then why not? Keep in mind that if you apply a bit lower down the rankings you are also likely to get offered more money, so since thats your aim, you are doing fine.
3. Perhaps Kellogg MMM
4. It depends. In your case its okay because you can get a great education in the East and most tech jobs are in the West. if you wanted to do finance it might be otherwise.

If you got any more Qs you know where to find us!
