Hello people! I got into Simon MBA and GW’s MBA program with 50% scholarship from each program. Which program is better and which would you choose? Ready, Go!

Hello kipamadden ..... welcome to the community.

As far as my knowledge goes Simon is a better brand. Saying that I would be doing my groundwork on the points below(before signing up):
1. The specialization I am looking for
2. Interacting with alumni from the same field.

All the best !!

While I don't have intimate knowledge of the two programs--the initial perception is that Simon is the better brand. You'll have a strong intimate network and depending on your goal, Simon seems to outpunch their weight in finance. Even some people going into IB. Congrats and good luck.

Two interesting programs and both are International applicant heavy.
Simon is 43% internationals and 50% of them are from India.
GWU is 41% international and 67%! of them are from China!

Rankings-wise Simon is stronger and has had a very strong name in finance and esp in finance research (quant funds and hedge funds were once after that research). Depending on your goals one program may look better than the other.
