Want to work in San Francisco post-grad - which schools? [#permalink] New post 10 Nov 2013, 18:52
Hi all,

I'm currently a Canadian applying to various MBA programs for 2014 intake for Rd 2 - I have UCLA as my top choice, along with Oxford, Cornell, Duke, and USC as my other shortlisted schools.

I am very interested in moving to San Francisco/Bay Area post-grad - I know UCLA would be the most ideal out of all my choices, but how are the other schools as far as SF/Bay Area alumni networks and being 'feeders' into SF? I'm interested in pursuing a role in the tech industry or marketing/brand management route post-grad - sustainability is also an area I may have interest in due to my background. I know Stanford and Berkeley should probably be my top 2 schools but I am very doubtful about my chances of getting in. My stats: 700 GMAT (49/37), ~3.0 GPA, business undergrad, 5 years experience at a top Canadian pension fund in ESG/sustainability/responsible investing.

I understand UCLA feeds many alum into the SF/Bay Area and given its strong reputation it's my #1 choice by far. Oxford has an excellent reputation worldwide, and appeals to me due to its internatioal brand recognition. Cornell is an Ivy League with a strong marketing program, and Duke is tops in marketing and appears to send quite a few alums to the Bay Area as well. USC is probably in a tier below these schools, but the strength of the Trojan network is very powerful - just don't know how strong it would be outside of SoCal/LA.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
