Hello All,

I had applied for Weekend MBA Program at Ross ,Mccombs , received admits for both. Here is my situation - I was almost certain to Join Ross for my MBA but then work thing happened and i will be moving to texas.So, if i take up ross , i would need to fly every other week to Ross which would be added cost (Flight/Hotel).I am interested in moving to technology firms such as Amazon,Microsoft. Please help me to take decide which one would be better choice :

1. Is Ross a better brand than Mccombs? Does it make sence to spend +40k for the brand?
2. Since, i am interested in recruiting (technology) , will i have same oppourtunities in Mccombs?
3.How is Mccombs degree values globally?

Please let you know you thoughts?

Ross is the better brand and sends many grads to tech firms like Amazon, etc every year. Ross > McCombs

McCombs is still a very good brand though, and also feeds decently to tech firms.

Bottom line: While Ross is the better brand, McCombs is fine too, and you should really be living near the Part-Time program if you plan to work at the same time.

I think Roos is better brand than McCombs, however, McCombs is a very good brand.
lf you move to Texas then take McCombs because you can save a lot of money. Moreover, McCombs is doing good in Tech companies and there are many Tech companies in Texas.


Good luck.

Yes, Ross is better than McCombs. No it does not not makes sense to spend 40k+ for the brand in addition to the time of travel/stay etc. (time is money)

Will you have same opportunities? Probably not. But you will have pretty descent opportunities in McCombs as well. Moreover, if you choose Ross, I doubt if you'll be able to completely utilize the resources because you'll be there only for a short while every week. At McCombs you can enjoy a much more flexible schedule and can explore what McCombs has to offer in totality.

Depends on which part of globe you go. I can talk about Asia region and not many folks would recognize McCombs (though UT is still a pretty good brand). Having said that, Ross too isn't that strong a brand either in the Asia region. UCLA/Duke in the same league are known better. I don't think you should worry about this because in long-term what you did post-MBA will matter more than slight difference in brands of schools.

ROSS IS THE BETTER BRAND BUT IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE TO SPEND 40K EXTRA FOR A PT PROGRAM
2. Since, i am interested in recruiting (technology) , will i have same oppourtunities in Mccombs?
YES YOU WILL AUSTIN IS A BUSTLING TECH HUB
3.How is Mccombs degree values globally?
IT IS OK BUT NEITHER SCHOOL WILL BE A DIFFERENTIATOR HERE IN THIS REGARD
