I got admit from Missouri and Tampa...but i am still confused which to choose...my area of concentration is Entrepreneurship...please can anyone suggest which is the best out of these two B-schools. A lot of ranking and other stuff is available online regarding the schools but not enough to make an informed decision. Does anyone has a more in-depth knowledge about these two schools that can help me decide?

Hello rave83

Congrats on being admitted to two good schools.

I would go to Tampa, but that is my personal choice, related mostly to location :cool:

Lets check some facts.


If we check top 50 MBA's with specialization in entrepreneurship, according to Top MBA and FT, there is no Crosby or Sykes on list:

http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... rship-2018


Sykes is named in Top 100 Business Schools by Bloomberg Businessweek :

In US News rankings, Sykes is mentioned but Crosby or U of Missouri as institution, cannot be found:

https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-sc ... ampa-01324


CEO Magazine has also high opinion on Sykes and their MBA programs :

If we compare business schools Bloomberg places Sykes on 78. place, but I don't see Trulaske Missouri on list:

https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2017 ... s-schools/


I looked back in previous rankings and noticed important trend that Trulaske was falling and was Sykes raising, in most recent years, that alone is good indication where you should go.

For instance, in already mentioned Bloomberg Businessweek rankings of best business schools, Trulaske was ranked in 2012 (56. place), while you can see that Sykes is ranked in 2017.


No need to explain how weather is much better in Tampa than Columbia, Missouri :) but then again, everybody can have different taste and preference.


All in all, I would vote for Sykes.


Good Luck with your decision ! :cool:

Tampa is well known for entrepreneurship and has better prospects.
