I chose I want to do a PT program because my company is in an awesome spot. I want to eventually move up to a VP of Engineering and eventually a CTO. I want to make the business decisions around technology in a company.

Currently I am looking at Tepper, McCombs, and Anderson. I am also considering Kellogg, Booth, and Haas. As you can tell I'm torn between "tech" MBA and "traditional" MBAs. Can you give me your opinion on which type of experience will be best for my career goals?

Thanks!

Are you sure it is wise to forgo the relationships and leadership opportunities you could build in a full time program for what is happening at your company right now?
Are you sure you want to fly to these programs? Unless your company in sponsoring I really think the ROI is far stronger for a FT program, long term.

I would recommend you get into the highest ranked program that has a decent curriculum and program offering for what you want to do. Quite honest I feel the last 3 could fulfill all your tech desires and the brand/ROI will just be higher, if you can get into those.

Thank you very much for your feedback. Yes I am very positive about PT program. I can say a situation like mine only happens once a life time, with all of my FT friends at top programs agreeing with me.

I'm just torn because I don't want to switch to consulting or finance. I will consider what you said when responses come next march!

I don't understand what you mean about consulting or Finance, are you working under the impression that those are the only options for the higher-ranked schools?
