Which b-school will yield the best placement rate in the tech and finance sector in the San Francisco or Los Angeles area?

Thanks in advance.

Great job getting into 3 schools!

I would say Ross or UCLA but taking into consideration you want West Coast, my first chose would have been UCLA.
For Finance, I think UCLA is a strong school on the west coast even when compared to Stanford.... though keep in mind that on the East Coast, unless you have gone to Stanford people think you took Surfing and Golf classes.

P.S. Last year 81 grads received finance jobs (well above the count of the USC or Ross grads) at Anderson. Average salary around $100K.

P.P.S. I see no reason to go to Michigan for school only to come back to LA/West Coast after that. Not worth the effort and the alum network in LA will be so much stronger as everyone respects/loves UCLA.

Good Luck!

Thanks for your response, bb. If I were to head east, would Ross be a better choice?

I'm looking at Ross and Anderson as well, and that has been the feedback I have received. UCLA seems to be slightly preferred west coast and Ross east coast. The exception to that may be tech, where Ross seems to have an edge (google, amazon).

USC is falling apart, so your choice should definitely be between anderson and michigan. They are about the same when it comes to recruiting overall, but since you want california, I think UCLA is the easy choice.

Applied to both Ross and Anderson so hopefully I can be in the same dilemma that you have in March haha, but I think you can't go wrong with either one. Anderson will probably place better but if you're going to do a school outside CA to pursue tech, Ross is a great choice (20-25% West Coast job placement post-grad). However, I think UCLA definitely wins if you're set on staying in CA long-term.
