Syracuse Whitman or University of Houston Bauer [#permalink] New post 17 Feb 2013, 19:13
Hi,

Thank you for taking the time out to consider my questions.

I have a Bachelor of Engineering from Massey University in New Zealand, majoring in Environmental Technology and Sustainable Energy.
In addition, I have 4 and half years construction experience, starting off as an assistant engineer, moving on to bid management and project management within that time.

I have two admits:

Syracuse Whitman: Scholarship of $20,000
University of Houston Bauer: Just received an admit so no news of aid yet.

I would like and a sustainable/energy focused MBA. Syracuse has a tie up with SUNY and provide sustainability certificates, while UH has an energy focus MBA.

I need some advice on how to I should go about making a selection.

Thank you once again,
Karan.

Hi Archit,

I have actually decided to go to neither, I am probably going to Rutgers. So far in my research, out of all three, Rutgers boasts the highest employment rate (within 90 days of graduation) at 93%.

But I am assuming that u wanted Energy focused electives. But Rutgers has One, I doubt. One thing is positive with Rutgers its in New Jersy dats Louisiana. I guess, So that is also Energy hub. Moreover Rutgers is 2nd oldest university of US so it has strong hold.....
Can you detail your profile.

Best of Luck

I m targeting those universities that have energy focused course...with supply chain. Problem is fr the front line colls in this sector either charge a lot or they have high gmat requirement.

Expert's post
Congratulations on the acceptances! How wonderful that you have two strong options.

To decide between them, look at the recruiting records for both over the last few years. Does one or the other have a recognizably stronger track record for recruiting in companies of interest to you? Aside from the funding offer and the curriculums, this recruiting factor is sometimes significant.

Aside from that, write down the pluses and negatives of each program, and give a weight to each factor. And then add up the results! This will give you an objective sense of the two, and you can then isolate your subjective response, if any, and decide how much to factor that in to your decision.
