Stern or Chicago GSB [#permalink] New post 30 Jun 2008, 09:31
Hi,

I need some advice in deciding which school I should join for my part time MBA.
I got through Stern and Chicago GSB.
I want to specilize in Strategy Management and Leadership Management.

One of the most important deciding factors for me would be job opportunities since I will be making a complete switch
from a techinical developer to a strategy analyst.

Could you please tell me which one I should go for?

Thanks,
AB

I have some experience with stern's undergrad, and I very much think that chicago is a better bet (especially if you're looking for consulting, which stern is generally fairly poor in).

I saw a post on bw forums a couple of months ago that broke down the percentage of MBA (FT) graduates in consulting that got into mckinsey, bcg, or bain. Chicago placed around 50% in those three, whereas stern was significantly lower. FT is a little bit different though, and I know that stern's PT program is well respected. I've heard, though, that the prestige of the FT program is a more important factor than the PT program, so in that case I'd definitely go with chicago.

FT and PT degrees are very different. I would say the best way to decide is to choose which location you want to live for the 3 or 4 years it will take to finish. Also where your career can progress while you are still in school should be taken into account.

CHICAGO GSB -

School has a better reputation for consulting recruitments.

Stern again has good recruitments in consulting but not as good as Chicago GSB.

Since the GSB doesn't have a leadership management specialization, I suggest you go to Stern.

Hi AB,
Let me congratulate you first!!! Both are good schools... I heard for general consulting.. Chicago GSB is good.
If you are looking for finance.. obviously Stern is the best.

If I were you I would chose Chicago GSB. unless you like to live in NY city :lol: :lol:

I planning to apply for Chicago GSB or Stern for the part time in future. If you don't mind, could you please elaborate your background (experience.. GMAT score.. your roles in the previous projects ) .

Here is my profile.
B.Tech (chemical engg) Andhra University India ( ~78%) -- Not sure how to relate this to GPA
M.Tech (Chemical Engg) IIT Kanpur India. ( CPI .9.33/10.00) ~ 3.73/4.0
Experience: 7+ years in IT industry
WIPRO- 6 years (While leaving my role was Tech Lead)
US company -- 1.5 years( Analyst role -- Not a lead role)

India experience : 1.5 years.
US experience : 6 years.
From the above profile.. Please let me know what GMAT score is required?

Thanks in advance for yor help.
