2017 EMBA NYU Stern or Cornell Johnson?  [#permalink]

Hi All,

I have been accepted into NYU Stern and Cornell EMBA programs for Fall 2017. I've gotten partial funding through merit scholarship at NYU and Dean's scholarship at Cornell. Overall, taking into account the difference in tuition and scholarship amount between both, I calculate that I will end up spending $5K less if I go to NYU.
I live in NYC. (so the Cornell program is the weekend/Metro NY one)
So, is it a fairly obvious choice to select NYU over Cornell? or is this a more complicated choice?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks.

It depends a bit on how you are planning to use the degree and if you are trying to move into certain industries/jobs where one program may be stronger than the other (not very likely that Cornell would outmaneuver Stern in any industries).

I think it may be as simple as Stern. I can't find any arguments to go to Johnson NYC Metro program over Stern's.
With Stern, you will be much closer to the mothership and have a lot more resources and opportunities available for you.

Congratulations! Great job getting into 2 great programs!

P.S. Hope you can get the current employer to off-set some of the tuition cost.

Thank you.
Yes, getting a partial ride from employer. That plus the merit scholarship will help in offsetting the tution :)
Got an invite to interview from CBS this week, but a little too late... no regrets however. Esp. as financial aid is very unlikely from CBS.
