Deciding between Babson and Mendoza. Mendoza offered a much higher scholarship but not sure if the hype surrounding Babson is true. Wanted to get an opinion here before making a decision.

Hi @prashraydaman

I don't see what distinctive advantage Babson has over Mendoza except location and entrepreneurship program.

If entrepreneurship is not your forte or desired career path, no reason to pay more for Babson.

Lets look in rankings.

As per esteemed US News rankings Mendoza comes as 31. Babson College (Olin) comes as 83.

That tells a story.

In Forbes Best Business School list Mendoza comes as 22. Babson comes as 57.

As per Forbes you have higher 5 year gain with Mendoza \$58.9K vs. \$32.9K Babson, lower Years to Payback ratio Mendoza 3.8 vs. Babson 4.4 and higher salary Mendoza \$150 K vs. Babson \$147K.

Bloomberg Businessweek agrees with all previously stated, Mendoza is on 26. place versus Babson (Olin) on 62. place.

It is funny how these two place figures changed their places

To tell you the truth, I have heard of Mendoza previously but I didn't of Babson, had to google it to see what/where it is.

So, what hype ?

Mendoza is better school obviously, given that they gave you much bigger scholarship, that is easy choice.

If you really want to live in Boston/San Francisco and money is not issue for you, and you want to pursue entrepreneurship specialization then and only then you should consider Babson, otherwise Mendoza wins.

Hope this helps you to decide !

Yes, this was an older post. I have decided to enroll in HEC Paris for January 2019.
Since I am trying to switch careers, INSEADs shorter program seemed to be less enticing.
