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.
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?
Thanks for any input and the vote!
