Hi All,

I have been offered admission into all the above mentioned colleges. Post MBA I wish to venture into Consulting. I am really impressed by the opportunities that Dallas provides to international students, but I am not sure whether SMU carries that good of a brand value to land me in a Consulting job in Operations and Supply Chain(if any exists) in Dallas.

Coming to Wisconsin, very good brand value combined with STEM designation for its OTM would put me in a better position when I look for jobs as an international candidate. School has even granted me TA during my Second year which would waive me off the tuition fee for the second year.

Carlson granted almost 50% tuition waiver and I believe employment opportunities post MBA here are as good as Wisconsin. I am aware of the strong brand value Carlson carries in Operations and supply chain specialization.

Really worried to hear that international students are not allowed to sit for many information sessions conducted by visiting companies at Wisconsin & Carlson(Really hope its a disinformation).

I am really confused on which college to chose and I am open to listening every possible review and insight on all the three colleges to make an informed decision. Can someone please help me here?

Thanks,
Pradeep Ch.

Congratulations on your hard work and admits and the scholarships!

I am not very clear about the amount of money you got or which program has STEM (just was not clear from your post). I see them as very similar in terms of post MBA career opportunities in consulting - they belong to the "work your ass off in off-campus recruiting" group. I would definitely bet on either lower cost or STEM opportunity to get OPT for 3 years. They are guaranteed as opposed to vague employment reports that are not always portraying a clear picture (those are based on self-reported information and do not include 100% students usually).

congrats :)

As professional in operation and supply chain, I can say confidently that either Carlson or Wisconsin is perfect for supply chain. Both posses great quality of education in the field. I'm not aware at all of Cox in any supply chain publication. Also, I have friends who approached last year international students and was not convinced of cox effort to help internationals, although Dallas itself has huge opportunities for supply chain.

In you case I would heavily leaning to wards Wisconsin as it will slash a lot of the costs especially in second year as TA. Also, it is STEM program. I know that some recruitment ask abut it. Regrading banning some internationals from attending some company sessions, it unfortunately happened in some schools. I know for example that Whirlpool won't hire internationals this year.

good luck
