Hi,

I got admit for Babson MBA and BU MBA programs. My post MBA career goal is to get a job in financial advisory or private equity or venture capital. I also have prior financial advisory and audit experience from Big 4. I got 50-60% scholarship from both the schools.
Which college would be a better fit for me? I have understood that BU doesn’t have great alumni network in finance sector. And also with the Visa issues I feel having a STEM degree is advantageous which Babson is offering?

It would be great help to know your opinion on the same

Thanks

Babson has 75% international students. Over 50% of Babson’s students are from India. How do you feel about an Indian school in the US?

Is that something you looking to be a part of or looking to avoid?

PS. Perhaps stonecold has some words of wisdom about stem or finance placements?

You are an international student and want to get into the financial sector. Few pointers to consider:

(a) BU or Babson - Neither schools appeal to candidates wanting to enter the finance industry post MBA.
(b) As an over B-school, BU Questrom smokes Babson. It's almost insulting to compare them in my opinion ( I am obviously biased).
(c) While your scholarship seems great, it is still slightly on the lower end of the spectrum for schools outside Top-20. (What I mean here is that getting a free ride is what makes schools outside Top 20 attractive)
(d) I strongly believe that Babson is like an inflated ballon with zero substance and too much focus on entrepreneurship, which is hard to teach...

My advice: I STRONGLY suggest that to join BU and opt for MBA+MS and shell an extra 10k to get STEM. Also, I don't know who told you that "BU doesn’t have great alumni network in finance sector". We have alums everywhere. I am happy to put you in touch with some of them. Feel free to PM me.

BU's employment stats: https://www.bu.edu/questrom/files/2019/ ... Report.pdf (Take them with a grain of salt. Class of 2020 will have much better stats :)

BU without a doubt. Babson’ s MBA is vastly inferior to BU’s and a cash cow for the Uni. The recruiting is weak and you’l struggle to find a job post-MBA, STEM or no STEM.

Go to BU, do the extra degree the previous poster mentioned. End of story.
