Which school to take up [#permalink] New post 16 Feb 2011, 11:37
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

Probably Fordham. None of those are going to have much cache outside of its area, so at least you'll be in NYC with Fordham. In the bay area, among the people I know and myself, an undergrad degree from an above average UC like Davis or SD is worth more than an mba from sf state or sjsu.

Also one more thing, the employment report of fordham is worst amongst these 4 even after being located in manhattan. The rest even Uni of Tenn has better employment figs.

You'd be competing against Stanford and Cal MBAs, as well as UCLA and USC MBAs to some extent. Most firms are only going to recruit at relatively high-ranked schools.

Any chance you'd be interested in putting off school for a year so you can strengthen your profile and become competitive for higher-ranked schools?

To be honest I don't think that will help in any manner because I got a low GPA and GMAT. There is no chance I am taking gmat again, I won't improve.

...because it's not possible to improve your GMAT with some studying?

Have you considered that you could probably improve by studying harder/smarter? What have you gotten on your three attempts? What was your Q vs. V breakdown? What kind of preparation did you do before each test?

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.
