Ross or Tuck [#permalink]  06 Feb 2011, 09:36
I'm relatively new to this forum, so if this is the wrong board to post this, I apologize in advance. I've been accepted to Ross and Tuck and wanted to get some other people's perspective on which to choose.
I'm looking to get into a leadership development/rotational program with an industrial company (United Technologies, Caterpillar, etc) and focus on operations management in the short term and then move to more strategic issues in the long term.
Ross has a pretty good op management program (Tauber Institute) and a lot of industrial companies recruit there. However, I also like Tuck's strong general management/strategy curriculum and the CEO's of Eaton and Siemens NA are Tuck alums, so that can't be a bad thing.
If anyone cares to share their thoughts on this, I appreciate it. And again, I apologize if this is the wrong board.

@Hussain- Thanks. It seems like someone else is having the same "problem" I am having, ha ha!

@tmino- Thanks for the advice. I will definitely ask some of the current students some more questions. As far as the scholarship, since I will be using the GI Bill, the tuition is basically covered at each school, so that takes that out of the equation.

You will have the same chance to get a job in your chosen field from both schools. CEO's or curricula don't matter when it comes to recruiting. My advice is to make your choice based on personal preferences - class size, teaching method, town, etc. because recruiting-wise for jobs in GM/ops they are pretty equal.

Expert's post
For general management, aside from Harvard and Stanford, I don't think any of the top 20 schools have an advantage over the other. The only thing that really matters if whether or not the company you are interested in recruits at the school. Getting in to a leadership rotation program with off campus recruiting is much more difficult than with on campus recruiting.

I would just evaluate my decision on the fit of the school. Do you like the student body? Do you like the location? Can your significant other get a job there? Etc.

sniper, asimov- Thanks for the info. I'm still 50/50 but will definitely keep talking to current students/alum and go to the admit weekends before enrolling.
