Just given your focus, I would surely suggest for ST goal, Columbia / Duke seem more sensible... for long term, Columbia / Yale.
Personally, I'd say given your brand focus, C/Y/Duke make more sense
If you are more certain about global, then Columbia / Yale make more sense since Duke is not there, yet.
And if luxury goods/more general retail/consumer goods is important, I'd say columbia
So suppose you got admitted to Columbia, Duke, Darden and Yale as a sales gal that wants to switch into brand management/brand marketing - where would you go? I at some point would like to jump overseas - possibly spain and possibly working for a smaller company 100-250 employees.
Where would you go? Also, to add a little twist I applied to Columbia's binding EA round....
