I'm in a little bit tricky position, my current goal is to work corporate finance out on the west coast after getting an MSF (I have a broad business kind of background and am hoping that the MSF gets me the expertise to transition into corporate finance). With that being said, I applied to both ASU and BC, received offers from both. I hear that BC is better in terms of finance, but I'm not aiming for IB or FO positions and its also is across the country from where I would like to work. ASU W.P. Carey is west coast, but seemingly a newer program without a ton of data. It's tricky to evaluate these schools based on my goals and not a lot of data available, so I've tried comparing some MBA statistics, since both options combine MBA and MSF classes, in this respect ASU outshines... any help/insights/advice????

BC is the better program, for sure, but your goal is F500 and West Coast, making BC the less desirable program. I suppose the better question would be where exactly on the West Coast do you want to work? Oregon just started an MSF. Denver and UC Boulder has a program. California has a couple.

You need to ask yourself how badly do you need to be west coast. BC will have more recruiting opportunities and you can always target firms with operations where you want to work. But you also might end up with some good job offers not exactly where you want to be. Only you can really decide how important that is to you.

In terms of West Coast programs, which do you think are best? I thought ASU might be good based on the popularity of its MBA program on that coast.

West Coast is pretty big. Oregon is a good brand. The UC system has a few programs (Davis, Santa Cruz, San Diego). I am not saying ASU is going to be bad and your goals are realistic coming from the program. Just saying that if you wanted to say work in Seattle, then it might not be the best program.
