Whenever your options are not in the "top tier," you want to think of everything from a regional standpoint. So what region these programs are in is paramount - more than ranking or specialization. The ROI on an MBA outside of the top 25 or so really depends on your ability to get a job coming out of the program and your best chance to do so is to be going to school in or near the city you want to work in.

So the question is: where do you want to work when you graduate?

Hope that helps.

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti

I want to work on the west coast and I have also checked the employment figures that are better of SFSU, SJSU, Uni of Tenn than Fordham based in NYC.

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.

I think if you have a good personality and can network well, you should pursue the location you want, knowing you can maneuver once you are inside the walls. If not, then perhaps consider the ranked program. This experience is going to more about acquiring knowledge and taking this specific moment to go out and make your moves, rather than availing yourself of a super elite recruiting pipeline. I'm not someone to say don't go to a program outside the top 25, just be very entrepreneurial about the experience, regardless of your career goals.

From what you are saying, I'm thinking San Fran is probably the way to go. But don't be afraid to ask yourself the tough questions.
