school reputation mismatch [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2006, 19:20
Hi there, I'm new to this forum... my top choices, UCLA, Chicago, and Columbia offer the dual degree program that I want but their MBA programs are well known for specializations that dont apply to my specific purpose really. SO my question is, will it make a difference ? Am I basically missing the point b/c the only recruiters coming to those schools will be from those industries that the school specializes in and not what I care about? Does the school reputation for specializing in etc. etc. have to be in line with my career goals?

Columbia and Chicago are ultra elites so they should be discussed elsewhere. Could you be more specific about the dual degree program?

sure, the dual degree program consists of a general full time MBA program at Anderson, and a MPP- masters of public policy at the school of public affairs at UCLA. As you already know, Anderson is a major consulting and e-ship oriented school...right??

I'm still not seeing the problem- Anderson has a number of strengths in addition to the ones that you mentioned. What strengths do you feel it is lacking?
