Hello Everyone,

I have got an admit from Mays (Texas AnM), Owen (Vanderbil)t, Marshall (USC) and Mcdonough (Georgetown) with decent and similar scholarships. Wanted to gather more thoughts around which of them would be best in terms of opportunities (internship/employment)? I don't have pre/post mba preference in terms of location/weather.
My profile-
W/E: 8 years in IT industry (technology project management)
Post MBA : Product Management or Consulting in IT industry
Current Location - India

I have researched about these schools and read couple of articles over internet, but it would be immensely helpful to get other perspectives to make an informed decision. Really appreciate your inputs. Thanks.

Congrats

I can say that Mays is the weakest among the above. It is remote school in TX. They have very limited recruits. I was in contact with a student there last month and confirmed that info. The only thing is that is 18 months.

For Owen, we have current student who can help you

PugLyfe can share your thoughts.

I would vote either for USC or Owen.

I really can't comment on USC or Georgetown as I don't know much about the programs. I can only guess that USC might have better tech placements given the west coast connection. The USC network should be pretty solid too.

As far as Owen, I know several of my classmates received interviews and internship offers for PM roles. Amazon had a large on campus presence and recruited students for ops, finance and PM roles. Since I didn't recruit for those functions, I really don't know how much more robust the recruiting is. I did get the sense that a lot of tech companies required some more legwork on your end. Ultimately, if they are not on campus, you need to network a bit and can't just do a resume drop and expect an interview.

As far as consulting, we had people receive offers from Deloitte for HR, S&O, SCM and federal. Off hand, I really don't know of anybody that went for IT-consulting, but the pipelines exist to deloitte, pwc, kpmg etc.

In my honest view, I don't think Owen is that strong for tech placement. That's not to say you can't get the offer you're looking for. It just might require a little extra legwork depending on the companies you're targeting. I would reach out to the tech club and speak to folks to see how their recruiting went. I recruited for financial services, so the tech co's are out of my scope. I hope this was some help!
