I am in the very lucky position of choosing between Haas with a full ride from the consortium, Kellogg with 80% of tuition covered, and Sloan (without any scholarship). I have reached out to Sloan to determine if they would offer any scholarship, but I suspect it's unlikely.

I am currently a strategy consultant at one of the Big 4 accounting firms and they would sponsor my business school tuition if I returned for two years after graduation. However, I would prefer not want to return. Instead I am very certain that I would like to pursue tech product management for the next couple years at a big tech company (Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, etc.). I hope I am well positioned for these roles because I have a CS degree from undergrad and have performed PM-type work on a few consulting engagements. The ultimate goal is to gain some solid PM experience and then join a small pre-IPO tech company or found my own tech business (ideally with a social impact focus).

In terms of location I have no preference in the short term, but my partner would eventually like the ability to move back to the East coast to be close to family.

I am currently leaning Haas, am I wrong?

Congrats!

I think you will be doing well at Haas with your career track and goals. Haas is the smallest of the programs and has fewer on campus recruiting options but your opportunities should be equally represented and you would benefit from being in the Silicon Valley and startup culture to get a sense if it is for you and what it entails.

FuturePM91 - what would you recommend?

So I spend time in Silicon Valley these days in my new job. So if you’re in silicon valley it won’t be hard for you to find a job (I like to say that anybody with a pulse can find a job in Silicon Valley).

While I do like Kellogg and Sloan, with your career objective - Haas is a good choice, it’ll give you a lot more opportunities to network, meet founders of startups and interview. You’ll get support from the school’s resources, and additionally the location will give your networking opportunities.
And it’s free!

I think this is a tough choice for sure but that may be my bias showing. ? given the career goals and the full ride plus your CS background you won’t have any trouble with getting there through Haas. The only plus I see with Kellogg is that Kellogg is a larger program so it probably has a bit of a different feel than Haas but it probably isn’t worth $20-$30k for that difference. As much as it pains me to be disloyal, I’d take the money.
