Hi I am an Indian applicant. Kindly help me to choose between the 3 .
Problem with ISB is my current salary is near to what ISB will offer and my total expenses at ISB and Maryland Smith will be same inspite of the fact Smith is a two year program and is in US. This is becoz i have got decent funding+GA which will cover 60-70% of my total cost for 2 years at Smith. Purdue has not given me any scholarship.

I work in the financial services industry and would prefer to join an ibank after MBA

Please suggest :roll: :roll:

Do you want to live in the US or India? I don't think Smith or Purdue can be a straightforward path to the Top iBanks if you want to work in a front office role

I am ok with any location. MBA from Indian college will only give me the brand but no ROI as i am already in that high end bracket. I dont want to pay heavy fees and then come back and do what i am already doing (I amcurrently working for a financial firm) for almost the same salary

I can safely tell you to eliminate Purdue from your list. It is well known in Midwest for its supply chain program. The choice will be between ISB and Smith. I doubt that Smith sends students to IB or at least it sends few percentage. You need to direct your question to current students to know more. Also, you need to factor the risk of H1B visa and the uncertainty. You may to check if Smith's grad have jobs in India. LinkedIn is agreat tool to support you to find those grads.


Good Luck
Current Student

None of these schools are strong in I-Banking (IMHO)
Moreover, if you're already getting close to post-MBA salary (in case of ISB) I presume you're in a good profile. Why didn't you consider applying to LBS/M7?
I'm confused about your thought process, please help me understand :roll:

Well if you want purely ROI it looks like you've already made your decision. But like I said, unless you hustle, iBanking won't be easy from Smith.
