Thanks for the valuable advice.
I am from India and I shall be grateful if you may provide your insights between the two schools W.P.Carey Business School and Eli-Broad Graduate School of management.
Fortunately I received the offer from both the schools with best scholarship. I have been offered with 100% scholarship and 20,000USD stipend from W.P.Carey and 12,000USD fellowship and GA position, which makes my tuition fees nil, from Michigan State University.
I am interested in supply chain management course. I am married and have 7 years of experience in project management-construction in a well reputed oil marketing company of India.
I am confused and in a big dilemma. Being an international student, I feel that financially W.P.Carey is the better option for me but Michigan is known for manufacturing companies where I may feel that I have better prospects of placements. Website placement statistics are equal for both the schools.
Kindly help me to take the best decision. I shall be grateful for your kind advice.
First of all congratulations!
If I understand your correctly, your tuition is 100% covered at both schools, but you will have to come up with at least some living costs at Broad. Right?
That is a tough one. They are both well regarded in supply chain and logistics. I think if you feel it will be a struggle to support your family if you attend Broad, then go with Carey. But you can come up with the money to pay your living expenses at Broad, I would be inclined to attend Broad, although it is a close decision. Broad is in the U.S. industrial heartland with strong ties to the automotive industry. I think it will provide a slight advantage in terms of placement.
The good news is that you have two excellent options.
