UCLA Anderson PT or Berkeley Haas PT for me? [#permalink] New post 10 Aug 2013, 10:31
I have the option to work out of the LA or the Silicon Valley office. As I work, I plan to get my PT MBA from one of these schools. Which one do you recommend given my situation?

I am a 28 year old male
I plan to concentrate in finance and entrepreneurship. I am not a career switcher so PT works for me. I am going to continue in finance and/or entrepreneurship as my career. I would like to eventually work in East Asia or Southern California.

How much of a brand and recruiting advantage does Haas have over Anderson if I want to have a possible career in East Asia? My goal is to go to East Asia soon after I finish the PT MBA program and work there for a few years. Then I plan to come back to California (preferably Southern California). Would getting my MBA from Haas open more doors for me over Anderson throughout my career?

Moving to the right forum.

I think from the standpoint of the PT programs and recruiting in SE Asia, you are much better getting a Full Time degree and I would recommend getting a semester abroad and spending a semester in HKUST, CEIBS, or in Singapore. That will allow you to get plugged in much faster and get a foot in the door and get that schools' name on your resume.

Also, the PT programs offer much fewer career and recruiting options as well as invitation to recruiting events. The thinking is that the FT students need to find a job. You, as a PT student, already have a job and have the second priority and often probably would not be seeking a change in jobs. There have been a few posts on the FT vs. PT and recruiting.

Do you speak the language? Mandarin, Cantonese, etc?
