There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I recently got accepted into USC's MBA.PM program and SDSU's MBA program. I am planning to continue to work full time while I attain my MBA and am currently in a predicament.
My company will be reimbursing me $10,000 per a calendar year for my graduate degree which will cover SDSU's entire tuition and partially for USC's (estimated cost: $108k).
I currently work in corporate finance in San Diego and am planning to stay in this career path ultimately striving to become a CFO.
I wanted to know if carrying on the debt from USC is worth it in the end.
Thoughts/Questions: 2 year commitment to company after graduating. Are companies recruiting willing to pay off debt owed to prior employer? Going to USC, I will have to maintain my current role since it is extremely flexible so I may commute to USC and telecommute to work on my own schedule. Going to SDSU, I can continue to progress my career while I attain my MBA and take on a new role. USC's network > SDSU's network; is the network worth it in the long run? Does the USC name diminish as I continue to gain experience and employers will care more greatly about my experience than education?
There are tons of Marshall alums in San Diego and the two schools you're comparing have such a gulf in class that you could park a Nimitz class aircraft carrier between them. (No disrespect to SDSU) Since you're fortunate enough to have a job which is flexible on being physically present at work, I think USC is the way to go.
