Which EMBA: Cornell vs Columbia vs Kellogg [#permalink] New post 05 Jun 2014, 05:44
Happy to have options, but hard to know which criteria are most important in selecting amongst these schools. Please consider that I want the most bang for the buck given my particular situation as older and established student with maybe 13 years of work remaining.

49 year old doctor accepted to EMBA programs:

Cornell (Pallisades)
Columbia (F,S)
Kellogg (Miami)

Will probably continue in health care administration. May consult vc, hedge funds, biotech.

Columbia is Ivy and highest ranked. The educational snob in me says to go there. But NYC is hard to get to, Fri class is difficult, hotel is not provided, and little networking as everyone goes home at night.

Cornell sat/sun is most convenient, easier to get to, ivy, and you are captive with classmates and profs - a good thing IMO.

Kellogg in Miami is convenient format (once per month is good for me) and desirable location, high ranked, also captive audience, but not ivy.

All great, but am I wrong to go with Cornell, or maybe Kellogg for convenience over a higher ranking? Do I go with Kellogg because higher ranked than Cornell.

Or is CBS the place to go due to higher ranking, Ivy, and NYC location (despite my perceived negatives above)?

Of course, I am fully committed and thrilled to go to any of these. Only one acceptance would have been easier! But now with options, I look to the forum for insightful comments from those that have a good perspective of the landscape, especially for an older student from the healthcare arena.

Does #5 ranking trump convenience and #10 ranking?? Does Ivy trump ranking?
