USC vs UCI FEMBA [#permalink] New post 02 Jul 2014, 11:10
Hi Guys,

I am a bit torn between these two schools.

USC is great, better reputations, more intensive network, better post-graduate salary, highly regarded courses, more resourceful and more funds.

UCI on the other hand, is up and coming, young, and energetic, there is so much potential.you can't beat the package benefits, you will never need to find parking, they prepare your food so you can focus, really smooth out the in-school experience for you, smaller group, so more personal. Also, got offered with Dean's Fellowship at UCI. not too sure if this is something beneficial.

Anyone got any Pros/Cons list between these two schools?

Can't really offer too much insight since we don't know much about you. Were you accepted into the full time USC program or USC MBA.PM program? Do you want to switch industries/employers during or after your program? Are you a career enhancer or a career switcher? How much money does the fellowship offer?

Anyways, I'll assume you are talking about the USC MBA.PM program. Potential, youth, and energy doesn't help you secure a new job. Established networks and brands do. It takes a while for a new business school to get its bearings and build a network. I'll also assume you live in the OC (since you are considering UCI). I can bet that you see at least one USC license plate or bumper sticker everyday. How many UCI license plates or bumper stickers do you see everyday? Take a drive through LA county and all you will see is USC license plates with a scattering of UCLA/Berkeley/Stanford/etc. Many of those people may be fans of USC because of their football program, but that is one more person you will have a connection with.

An MBA is a stamp of approval and a resume check for many companies. Would you rather get your stamp from USC, which has arguably the strongest network in Southern Coalifornia, or UCI, which is a good UC school but not relatively known for their business school.
