I got accepted by ND MBA+MSBA with full scholarship and UW MBA with some scholarship
and Olin full scholarship and Rice some scholarship
I am an international student, plan to stay in the US after school, aiming either tech or consulting( 2nd tier: EY and PWC etc)
Pre MBA: local buyside+ tech at F500, i would like to do buyside in the US but it is impossible
so i plan to go to either tech or consulting first, see if i can move to corp m&a in the future
I guess both ND and UW have pro and con
ND: cheap and 3 year opt, not sure if it is really helpful for international student
UW: strong in tech especially seattle and west coast, which is where i wanna stay after MBA, but i will have to pay some money
any suggestions?

Congrats foster2019

As international, I would avoid Rice as I know many international turned their offers down after contacting many current students as it as not supportive for them. Here, I compare between Olin and ND. I do not know about tech in both. But consulting could be the same in both schools but in ND you would work with your alumni network who are supportive.

However, I see 2 things in ND: 3-opt (due to STEM MSBA) & the MSBS. My last year graduate friend from Kellogg told me that recruiters was asking fiercely if he has any STEM. It is very helpful. Secondly, Business analytics is hot job and on demand. You can blind your degree with working hard to get good offer. So, I'm leaning to ND.

Good luck

I agree about Seatle strength in Tech but I would weigh what you will pay against what I get. While I agree from the link below that Foster sends significant numbers to tech compared to ND, I'm would accept the combination of MBA+ MBSA+3years+ full ride. I know it is hard but no one get everything. Again, that is me. I hope it is helpful.

Happy New Year!

Congrats! What is “some”scholarship? What’s the final cost net of scholarships?

How long will ND take to complete the dual degree? Still 2 years and you get an internship?

Do you have a brand name on your resume? How strong is the F500? Will everyone know it?

$20K is not a ton in the grand scheme of things but 3-year OPT is nice.
You should expect no on campus recruiting at ND but you should be able to leverage the ND name for networking with alums. One thing though is check the student body at ND - i have heard it was getting overwhelmingly international (perhaps it is getting fixed).

P.S. It is safety of Full Scholarship + 3-year OPT vs. an almost-guaranteed job at Foster. What do you feel is more important? You feeling lucky or conservative?

hi bb thank you so much
i think finding a job in the US is the most important thing to me, hopefully at a tech firm or a 2nd tier consulting such as Pwc deloitte.

3 years OPT is not a small incentive when you think from an international's perspective. For every successful international candidate there are 5 others who compromised on their dreams to pick whatever came their way. Once you get into MBA you realise that you don't have the option of experimenting and exploring because of the time constraint. You will realize that U.S is a land of opportunities and you are handicapped because of the limited time you have on your hands. 3 years is a lot of time! Freedom is priceless.
