Hello guys,

Need help in selecting the university. I checked earlier posts for these 2 universities but unable to find much details. Also people didn't mentioned why they selected a particular university.

My Profile:

Education and experience: I am a telecomm engineer with MS degree from USA. Have worked in USA based tech company for 2.5 years before moving to India.
Currently involved in family manufacturing business(not related to telecomm at all) from past 2.5 years.

Post MBA goal : Interested in technical strategy or Consulting roles

Tepper vs Mccombs : Have to spend approx same money in both univs

Will really appreciate suggestions/advices

Thanks :)

Hey Nikkb ,

Congratulations for the two great admits.

Both the programs are equally good for tech. I would choose one based on whichever is cheaper, easy to live and easy to get loans etc.

I think scholarship from Tepper might be a little helpful.

There is a thread here that may also help you in taking a better decision.

P.S: I heard Austin is a beautiful place to live in. :)

Hello abhimahna,

Thanks for the reply :)

Both are coming exactly same cost vise ( as i didn't received any scholarship from McCombs and Tepper just gave me peanuts)

Both are equally same so hard to decide...

I already went over the thread that you shared... cant find much useful details from it....

Any insights on these univs ? Or do you know any person who faced same dilemma.. :)

Hey Nikkb ,

Find out the following details of both the schools and then take the one which weighs more:

1. Tuition and living expenses (I think this will be neutral for you)
2. Your desire to live at which kind of place. Austin or Pittsburgh.
3. Alumni network.
4. More opportunities for your dream companies
5. More fun.

If you still believe it's still same on each of the factors, close your eyes and listen to your heart. Take the decision and don't think about it again. :P

All the best :)

Nicely said abhimahna :thumbup:

I would add other points:

1- class size (but I feel both are close)
2- take an overview of the curriculum, especially the electives.
3- If interested in exchange, study which one university could provide one semester in the country and university you love to study in.
4- Some people, like me, think in long term learning after graduation. Some schools provide this opportunity like Tuck.

Good luck
