Hey GMC!

I'm struggling to come to a decision. I'm contemplating SMU part time MBA vs. UT Austin in Dallas part time MBA. Please note this is not UTD but rather UT Austin's satellite campus in Dallas.

Cost:
UT Austin 113k
SMU 95K

Although it's not certain, I project that the final cost after reimbursement and scholarships to be:

Adjusted Cost:
UT Austin 63K
SMU 35K

I'm currently a Data Scientist and am looking to position myself in business intelligence/strategy in the near future and then open my own data analytics consulting firm in ~10 years.

I've attended multiple sessions for both and although I love UT (my undergrad) I want to make sure I'm making a good decision.

Hello Zynxu


Congrats on admission to both programs.

UT Austin is best business school in Texas.

Period.

Since they are your undergraduate school, I will assume you are aware of that.


Here we are talking about initial around $30k difference in cost/investment.


It is no surprise that rankings agree with me, McCombs is on high 7. place nationally in US, for part time MBA:

Same story was last year, and again Southern Methodist University was nowhere near ( "commendable " 66. place :) ) :

It is easy choice, go to McCombs, I certainly would, those ~~ $30k difference in investment will worth it ;)



Good Luck ! :cool:
