Dear All,
I have offers in multiple MBA programs and now in dilemma as I cannot decide which school to attend. The offers are

1. Kelley with 35% scholaship
2. Olin with 100% scholarship
3. ASU with 100% scholarship and GA ship
4. MSU Broad with 80% scholarship

I am unsure about my goals to be honest. But I think strategy and operations 'll be better for me. I am an electrical engineer with 6 years experience in energy sector in production/manufacturing.

Any suggestions which school to attend.

Hi haseebhassan ,

I would have gone with Kelley if the difference weren't huge. But considering the current list, I believe you should go for ASU. That looks like a great deal + program is also reputed.

All the best :)

Here would be my preference order =>

Olin > Kelley > MSU >>>>>>ASU

Reason -> Olin is a tremendous school with great stats.
But so are others.
MSU has a phenomenal reputation in terms of research(One of my friends is doing his Phd in Finger fingerprint analysis from MSU)
Kelley again is in the same league.Plus Indiana is really cool.Also,Kelley is really popular among Indians.Its diverse with an equitable proportion of Internationals.

Lets talk about ASU.
Quite frankly,I don't like ASU. Maybe its a personal thing.The reason being its artifice by making its MBA "tuition free" to improve its ranking.
Its not in the same league as the other top 20 B-schools.If you ask me I think it should be ranked like 55 or something.Its reputation is Bonkers.
After struggling for a large part of their existence they had to stoop down to the "FREE MBA TAG" to gain some momentum.
Plus ASU has one of the highest population of Indians and Asians which to me is questionable.Everyone in the Indian MS circle applies for ASU.
Plus the location.Do you really want to be a torrid Dessert with a paucity of places to hang out at?
I like socialising.If you do too, then avoid.

Again,I repeat -> It is a bit of a personal choice regarding ASU.


I would have gone with Olin or Kelley.
NOTE -> Kelley's fee isn't that stiff as compared to MSU. Maybe be something to consider if you are leaning towards MSU


All the best and let us know how it worked out :cool:

Hi haseebhassan

I almost share the same view as stonecold but taking into consideration your swing between strategy and operations, then I would go for Olin as best option that holds good opportunity in both fields but I have a question, what do you mean by "strategy"? The strategy positions in corps are not opened for internationals. Do you mean strategy in consulting firm like MBB?

I feel now that you are close to Kelley. You will be called soon. :-D

Another Green highlight.
Congrats brother!
You will really be going to Atlanta (Emory) unless you get call from Mccombs for the MBA. :dazed :cool:

Trivia -> Mccombs will give you chance to get that dual degree using which would be eligible for STEM opt.It will extend your stay in the US for another couple of years.
Maybe something to look at given the fact that Trump is ready with a sword to cut off that H1B ?





Best
Stone

Good luck :-)
