BOOKMARKED
Hello everyone,

I am an international applicant with a rich experience in the software industry. Recently, I got admit from both UC Davis and UC Irvine. I researched a lot about both the schools and found them pretty competitive with a good alumni network in the bay area, place where I want to settle post MBA. Can someone please suggest which one is a good fit?

Thanks in advance.

I'd personally go with Irvine if you want to end up in southern California and Davis if you want to be in the Bay Area. Irvine is a growing campus and program, and the Irvine area has tons of tech/software jobs. The Irvine/Orange County area is also known to some as an up and coming Silicon Valley. I don't know as much about Davis but I assume you could recruit into some of the tech companies in SF.

If you can, go to the admit weekends and check out the recruiting options.

Hello aerien,

Thanks for your feedback. One thing about Davis is that it has a small alumni network plus you compete with Stanford and Berkeley for the bay area jobs.
The alumni network of Irvine is getting stronger in the northern California as well. So, really a tough call for me :(

I went to Davis for undergrad, so clearly I'm biased, but Davis is actually well-known and well-regarded in Northern California. I wouldn't say the same thing about Irvine. I agree with aerien that you should think carefully about where you want to end up after school (and therefore where you need a strong brand and network) and make your decision accordingly.

Go to UC Irvine for the MBA program. It is higher ranked, better location, network, stronger corporate connections, reputation and faculty.
