True.

But again, OP really needs to figure out what type of sector he wants to go into.

Usually if you are thinking of doing a startup, a bunch of debt is the last thing you need. Usually... there are situations where you can get access to certain networks via the bschool. But usually the recommended approach is to NOT quit your day job until your business can sustain you somehow be that via VC or Revenue.

Going for an MBA is not something that will doom one but if you did go after the degree, I would highly recommend that you start working on your startup immediately after matriculation. That’s what people do recruiting - they immediately start interviewing and securing their internships and positions. You should do the same with your own venture.

Just trying to be constructive here. P&Q is a fairly serious website and the difference between the two schools is wide enough to offset any potential measurement error.

That said, if you know of an alternative data source on VC funding that is even more credible, by all means let us know. My view is that more data is always better than less data for this type of decision.

I came across this report( Source: bit.ly/hswreport )

Top US Business Schools For Funded Founders
US B school ranked by Number of Graduating Startup Founder
Based on the number who raised $1M or more after May, 2018
Harvard: 192
Wharton: 116
Stanford: 112
Kellog: 47
Columbia: 46
MIT: 44
HAAS: 34


Before referring above data, keep in mind the fact that total number of students varies, Haas 300 vs. CBS 750

Fantastic point about the program size and what makes a website serious....
