Texas McCombs Reputation/Opportunities Outside of Texas [#permalink] New post 28 Dec 2011, 09:47
I know UT is well-regarded and well-recruited inside Texas. I applied to Texas because I was planning on working in Texas. However, I also want to keep my options open as far as career opportunities and was wondering how Texas is perceived and recruited in California and the west-coast in general. My post-MBA career goal is to land a management consulting job. MBB would be nice, of course, but I'm not married to any one of those firms. Are Texas MBAs generally viewed as the same caliber as UCLA Anderson or Haas MBAs in California? Is it difficult to land a gig in California? I know something like 12% end up on the West Coast, but I don't know if that is simply because UT grads don't want to work there, or can't get hired there.

UT’s reputation does extend beyond Texas. However, every school is regional to a certain extent, even Stanford. The alumni base and corporate relationships will be stronger in Texas. That shouldn’t preclude you from applying and gaining employment in California. From what I heard, the California consulting offices are a bit competitive, especially San Francisco. So you would have an uphill battle. One route is always gain some work experience and leverage the experience for your final destination.
