Hi guys, I have an admit from the following schools (mentioned in the order of my preference):
1. Uni of Notre Dame for the MBA/MSBA dual degree program with ~60% fellowship
2. MSU Broad with ~75% scholarship
3. Penn State Smeal with a full tuition waiver and an additional monthly stipend.

Post MBA goals: I have around 5 years experience of handling plant operations in India and want to go into operations/supply chain management role. I'm also interested in consulting but have no previous work ex in such role.
I'm also concerned whether my plant operations work ex will actually be considered by employers hiring for supply chain role after my MBA.
Also, I'm interested in business analytics which is offered only by Notre Dame among the list mentioned above and I'm really interested in pursuing the dual degree course not only because it has STEM designation but it also opens a lot of employment opportunities after my MBA.

My questions:
1. How shall I pitch to Notre Dame/Broad to give me more funding?
2. Which is better in terms of employment for internationals? Broad or Smeal?
3. Operations and supply chain is new for Notre Dame. So I'm thinking of taking up consulting as my major. Will having no work ex in consulting deter my chances of getting a job?
4. I really wanna go to Notre Dame but my expenses are going to be high there and financing my MBA plays a major role in my decision. What should I do?

Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Please pour in your suggestions to help me choose.

Thanks!

Hi ssonesh ..
I have created a poll in your post to let users to quickly give their opinion.

Many Congratulations for 3 Admits and each one with Scholarships. We do not see such cases often. Great Job!! :thumbup:
You made me confused :roll: Here is my point of view:

I would take a school which will help me in achieving my future goal, bigger alumni network and career advancement. I left the cost matter because it is not worth to go to a school which gives you full ride and unable to help in achieving your goals. I can clearly see you are inclined towards Notre Dame because you know ;) that this school can help you in future goal.

I would recommend to pitch for more scholarships in N.D. (I can't suggest you how). Talk with Loan providers if the agreement with them suits you, then go for it. In case you don't get the funds, then look for other two schools. All the best.

Hey sjas31,

Thanks for creating the poll and your suggestions. But after speaking to people from Mendoza, Broad and Smeal, I'm leaning more towards Broad or Smeal as job opportunities are better for SCM in these schools compared to Mendoza.

The problem is that Broad is supply chain heavy whereas recruiters come to Smeal for marketing and SC consultancy roles as well. So I'll have more options there. On the other hand, internship stats are better this year for Broad.

It is great that you have done further research. I am sure you will be able to choose now. Good luck for your new journey :)
