Which school to take up [#permalink] New post 16 Feb 2011, 11:33
Hi,

I need advice on which school to choose from for the full time mba program - Fordham, Uni of Tennessee Knoxville, San Jose State University or San Francisco State University.......I have got through all of them...

I already got experience and I am looking at pursuing a career in marketing, can you please guide as to what would be a good school for me to have better opportunities when I pass out.....Coz i really want to work in the US after my mba.....

Please provide me with whatever you know.....


Thanks,
Kelvin

You need to provide more info about yourself. Honestly, I'm not really familiar with any of these schools (or schools outside the top 30). My guess is that these schools are good for local recruiting. For example, if you go to the SJSU or SFSU, most of the grads end up working in the Bay Area. Likewise, at Tennessee, most of the grads end up working in the southeast. Apply first - you may or may not get into all of them. Once you get your acceptance letters, then decide. It's really a personal decision, and the best way to go about that is to actually visit some of these schools, and make a decision based on your own gut feel and opinions.

Also, for your own sake, avoid ending all your sentences in ellipses (... ) because you end up diminishing yourself. If you spoke out loud like this in a professional (or even personal) context where your speech constantly trails off... what kind of impression do you think you're giving to others?

I dont think using ellipses on a forum really shows out unprofessionalism.

Yes I have got through all of them and I want to work on the west coast after my mba....

Do you mean "gotten into all of them" ?

If you want to work on the west coast, the only good reason to leave the west coast for school would be to go to a highly ranked program elsewhere. TN and Fordham do not fit that bill, so SFSU or SJSU would probably be more likely to get you a job in the bay area.

I got through UTK and SFSU. Now the problem is that UTK has ranked 60 in the US news and SFSU is not ranked at all.

Both have similar avg salaries. Good employment reports.

But SFSU is based in a large city and I don't know if being in Tennesee I would get a job after my study.

Please help me with some advice I'm in a fix.
