I am wondering what everyone's opinion among these 3 top programs.
I am looking for a program that will educate me on how to build a start up from ground up. I want to be a entrepreneur some day so I value a school with a strong entrepreneurial specialty. I don't have a particular start-up in mind but I'm hoping something will ignite after I've going thru the MBA program. As I back up, I want to go to a reputable school to help me change careers in case my start-up dreams don't succeed.
USC has a strong network and a strong entrepreneurial track but its a 3 year program and they've struggled with the rankings these past few years.
Ross EMBA is ranked the highest among the 3, but the Los Angeles Program seems to be more of a distance learning. It lacks club and social interactions valuable for networking in a MBA program. Also it is a lock-step program for General Management, so no entrepreneurial specialty.
UCLA is best of both worlds, but its difficult to get into. I have a low GMAT score, so the chances of me getting in are slim.
What are your thoughts for all three schools?
