Hi.

I need some advice on deciding which school to attend.

I have received admission from both schools. As an International student, I am looking to get into a big4 in the east coast after graduating. Both schools seem to require the same amount of tuition so tuition would not be an issue. I majored in Japanese for my undergrad(South Korea) and have taken a few accounting courses. IUB requires me to take 2 prerequisites before the start of the program. On the other side, UNC's macc is primarily for non-accounting backgrounds, so I would be attending the summer intensive course.

Both schools are ranked in top 10 according to PAR rankings. However, UNC is ranked higher overall business school rankings according to USNEWS rankings.

I noticed that the international portion of UNC macc was only 5%~7% as opposed to IUB being 30%. I'm slightly worried, how this would affect the learning atmosphere for internationals.

Would you mind sharing some of your thoughts regarding these schools?

Thank you!!

Overall UNC is a better option , yet ideal approach is to speak to a few current students from both program and choose what suits you

good luck

Both schools have a very good record for accounting.

I think UNC would be great to be able to leverage the brand and career center during recruiting season, they have a 95% placement record, not sure on Kelley numbers.

At this point for big 4 recruitment they should be on equal terms so you should be focused now on fit criteria, where would you rather live for the next 2 years. The point about 30% international students would also mean IUB has a more international class, is that important to you?

Start looking at the campus life, the area that the campus is located and you should get a feeling on which is the right thing.
