Well known MBA school VS non-well known MBA school [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2006, 08:56
Hi All,

I am a software engineer planning to do my MBA. I first applied to a non-well known school becuase I thought it will be easier to get in with a lower GMAT, but after i did my GMAT, i find out i qualify for a well known school. I applied to both of them, but i would still like to know whether well known MBA school will really have an edge on a non-well known one. Does people treat a non-well known MBA student like an undergraduate degree or what?

Another factor i have to consider is the price, the well known university is $55000 cdn while the non well known one is around $10000 cdn.

So does it really worth to pay $45000 more for a well known school?

Any thoughts are welcome.

Thanks.

Could you be specific and name the schools? Also, why do you want to get an MBA? What career path do you intend to pursue?

The fact is, the vast majority of MBA degrees out there are worthless when it comes to pursuing a new career. Without more knowledge, I would say that you should choose the more well-known school, but your definition of "well known" may differ from mine.

Ryerson VS Queens [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2006, 12:56
The school that I am applying are Ryerson and Queens. My first intension about going into MBA is just to get a degree, therefore i chose Ryerson. It is Ryerson's first year for MBA program, so it should be easy to get in and out and on top of that, very cheap. But after doing my GMAT, I learnt more about MBA and at the same time realize my GMAT is good enough for Queens. So now i am wondering will the Queen's MBA give me such an advantage that i can disregard the $45000 difference?

That's why i asked would getting a Ryerson MBA degree be treated as a undergraduate business degree becuase of Ryerson's bad reputation. I am sure Ryerson's MBA program won't be too bad since the ppl pursue post graduate degree are really dedicated to their work. So that's why i wanna know if you guys think the BRANDING is such an important factor.

What do you hope to gain from your MBA?

If you are looking for the sheer experience of learning about business Ryerson might be perfectly suitable.

However, if you are relying on the degree to help gain the attention of high prestige recruiters/employers Queen's might be worth the price.

This is very true. Since i don't have much management experience, going through Queenss won't exactly help me find a Managment job right away.
Thanks Hjort
