How do you measure the ROI? is there any place to find some data about it?

Personally I think the whole idea of ROI calculations is completely bunk. I mean how on earth are we suppose to accurately project our earnings over the next 30+ years with an MBA vs without one? It's asinine IMO. Nonetheless, here you go

Re: Tuck vs Ross ($) vs Tepper($$) [#permalink] ### Show Tags 18 Mar 2009, 13:45 Add a poll to this post! Its more fun! Anyway, Tuck is by far the best choice and even with no$$ the long term ROI is probably better given their die-hard alumni network (although the size of it is much smaller than Ross). _________________ "George is getting upset!"

i disagree with you if you want to look at it simply based on ROI.

Haha, as IHateTheGMAT pointed out, there is no real way to measure ROI. When thinking about the ROI for yourself, think about what is really important for you in the future. As I pointed out after my ROI comment, Tuck's Alumni network is prehaps the most die hard of any school. That will be very useful in the long term regardless of what you want to do with your degree IMO.

I think this is true by default.

Re: Tuck vs Ross ($) vs Tepper($$) [#permalink] ### Show Tags 19 Mar 2009, 12:25 I'm starting to find these threads very humorous, just to see how people pick schools. As stated earlier I really like Tuck, I've applied there but I picked Ross over Tuck for some personal reasons. I think if you're asking if the type of jobs people get offered at CMU, and Ross, are sub par to Tuck then the idea of rankings/M7/etc. has altered your perspective of the opportunities available to students at top 10 schools. As many others on this board have stated that just attending a top school isn't going to get you into M/B/B you are really going to have to do the work and at that point there is basically no difference between these schools.

A doubt I have is if the position that companies offer to Tuck students are the same that they offer to Ross(?) Students. Because a company can recruit in Tuck, Ross and Tepper but they can hire people for different positions of different quality/responsability. I assume you mean positions offered to Tuck students aren't the same offered to Ross students? That may be true in certain industries or with specific companies, but I don't think there is that much difference between the schools. Ross is a very well respected MBA program and so is Tuck. If you're concerned about it, contact each school's career office and ask about companies that hire for the position your looking for. You find out pretty quickly whether or not your suspicion is true.
