I have been accepted at Vandy with no money and Emory with 25% scholarship. My goal is IB in nyc but open to other locations. I know Emory is ranked higher but get the feeling that Vandy has more alum in finance. Which would you choose?

Neither one of these programs will be a great feeder into IB in NYC. Sure, a few folks go every year from Owen, and Owen does OK for IB in Charlotte, but I wouldn't call it a steady pipeline to NYC. I don't doubt Goizueta has similar results. Both schools seem to send ~20% of their graduating classes into finance roles--but Goizueta appears to be doubling Owen (as a % of the graduating class) for IB specifically.

Vandy: https://cdn.vanderbilt.edu/vu-web/owen/ ... ORSITE.pdf
Emory: https://goizueta.emory.edu/degree/two_y ... ltime.html

FWIW, I don't know that Goizueta really has that much of a "stronger" MBA program than Owen. They're peer schools and they're both largely regional. I suspect recruiting from either program for IB will be very similar, and the opportunities you land will largely be because of what you bring to the table, and not depend nearly as much on the fact that your name tag will say either "Goizueta MBA 2021" or "Owen MBA 2021."

*I* would choose Owen because Nashville is a 100x more fun than Atlanta.

Good luck with the decision!

Edit: I voted for Owen, but I think Goizueta at a discount is not a bad deal.

I feel the programs are comparable but the scholarship makes a difference!

I voted for Owen

Current Owen student here. I am not looking for opportunities in Finance so won't go into details. But, this year finance recruitment has been the strongest across all concentrations. North of 20 candidates are going for IB internship in NewYork. Around 25% of the class is going to east coast. Rest, you can confirm with career management center.

Boom. I stand corrected.

Haha.. It's been a pleasant surprise for all of us. This year recruiting has been phenomenal. Consulting has been great too. Two candidates got internship at BCG. One second year is going for Fulltime in Mckinsey. I know it's a small number for candidates looking for top-15 schools. But, Owen has done really well even though we fell in rankings.

Congrats! Two awesome programs.

While the current Owen student has provided great insight, I would first see if you can get in touch with an Emory student to share current year info as well. Traditionally (and confirmed by past employment reports) Emory has a significantly stronger presence in IB. A LinkedIn search of alumni (search "investment banking associate" for each school) will confirm this.

If Owen is on the upswing or had a strong class for IB that's fantastic, it's a great school and I agree re: Nashville! However, I wouldn't let that sway you unless you can confirm on the Emory side and I would feel more comfortable recommending the school with more historical ties that are listed on official employment reports (11% of the 2019 internship class).

Congrats on your offers and good luck!
