Hello Everyone,

Need help in deciding between these schools. Top post-MBA career choice is Consulting, second choice is Tech. Equally happy with placement in US or UK/Europe. I'm bent towards Duke in comparison to Ross going by recent employment trends, but not sure about Duke vs Cambridge.

Ross and Duke will both present equal opportunities to go into consulting. However, Duke has been doing really well in tech in the past few years. Coupled with $20k that you're getting, I'd take Fuqua.

Based on what you say, the Fuqua > Ross makes a lot of sense.

As for Fuqua vs. Cambridge, I would offer the following as consideration points:
1) Do you have prior consulting experience - my understanding is that getting into consulting without prior consulting experience is more difficult from 18 month programs, due to (lack of) internship culture.
2) Where do you have work authorization? the political climate with Brexit and Trump is making it more difficult for non-UK or US folks to get jobs in those countries.

Well it is as simple as it can get. If you want to work in U.S then Fuqua is a top 10 school, and opens phenomenal avenues for you. Having said that, I personally know someone who couldn't get a job in U.S after an MBA from LBS and his wife couldn't get a job in U.K after getting her MBA from Ross. Finally they came back to India and are happily settled here. So, if you want to live in UK go with Cambridge. If you are not a citizen then these dynamics become really important. So choose accordingly. Although things change if you are a U.K citizen willing to work in either US or UK, then Fuqua is an easy choice.
