Please suggest Purdue or Kenan Flagler [#permalink] New post 20 Oct 2006, 09:04
Hello All
I got admit from Purdue-Part time Week End program which will cost me $36k over the period of 3 years and I have admit from UNC-Kenan Flagler business school in their Executive Week End MBA program which will cost me $ 68 K over the period of 20 months.

I am not sure which one is better . Purdue offers career placement option in its Week end MBA program but in UNC-Kenan Flagler they just offer career management , no career placement services.

I am confused !!!

How didfficult it would be to get a MBA level job, if finish my degree with UNC-Kenan Flagler ?

Looks like UNC-Kenan Flagler is ranked better than Purdue

Please suggest your ideas

mpandi,

It depends which kind of "MBA level job" you're targeting. If you're aiming for a technology, consumer goods, manufacturing, or operations/logistics career post-MBA then Purdue might be the better (and cheaper) bet. If you're aiming for finance and consulting then UNC is probably the better bet. More and more MBAs are doing their own placement work to find positions, so I wouldn't let career services be your decision-breaking desideratum. As a general rule, UNC's is the more versatile and respected program.

Good luck,

Thank You Paul, I appreciate your response.

I want to specilize in Supply Chain management , however i noticed Purdue Week End program focuses only on general management and doesn't offer specilization and I can take only two electives as a part of the course.
However UNC-Kenan Flagler offers lot of electives in their Week End Executive MBA program, basically I can take 10+ electives from a list of 40 electives so it will help me to specilize in above area.

Am i missing anything here ?

Thanks

Raj,

No, as far as I know you are not missing anything--you appear to have analyzed the two programs' differences vis-a-vis your needs well. You might query Purdue about opportunities in its weekend program to prepare for a supply chain career track. You might also explicitly ask each program how its grads have done in terms of placement in supply chain management (perhaps asking which of the top supply chain firms have recruited at these specific programs). These are legitimate questions to pose to them. Either way, you will be getting a quality MBA, but as I mentioned UNC has the broader stronger brand value at the moment.

Good luck,

Hello Raj (aka mpandi),
I am in a similar predicament that you were in about a year back - deciding between Kenan Flagler and a more economical but top 100 program.
What did you decide ultimately? Please reply when you get a chance.

Thanks,
Gans.
