Hi guys,

I have a questions which school has a better career prospect in finance/banking/asset management. Fordham Univeristy or UC Irvine (Merage)? I know there are ranking online, but I want to hear some people's perspective from the forum. If you can give a reason why you feel that way it'd be greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

i dont think either school has huge ties to the big banks. from their businessweek profiles, it looks like almost a quarter of fordham grads go to finance post mba, whereas UC irvine is substantially less. also, all other things being equal, fordham's location makes it much easier to visit companies / do your own legwork during job hunting season. unless you have other extraneous circumstances (such as a lot of $$$ from UC irvine, or you live very close to UC irvine, or you want to stay on the west coast post mba), then i would probably look at fordham

Thank you for that input, now my second question is, if you were offered a FT admission at Emory vs a PT admission at NYU, which school would would carry a career further over a life time in finance/banking/asset management?

Thanks

comparing a part time to a full time program is kinda tough. stern's PT program is supposed to be very good, but the general train of thought is that a full time program is best suited for people looking to switch careers / industries. also, you lose a lot of the career development help that you would get from the full time program (for example, the dedicated recruiting for the full time program is different than the part time one).

So it seems like you would opt for Emory FT program over NYU PT?
