Hello Experts,

I have an admit in GWU for the class of 2019 with 30,000 USD scholarship (again upto). I also have an admit from Michale Smurfit Graduate Business School Ireland (50%scholarship).

I am confused and unable to decide between the two. Experts on the forum could you please help me in selecting one in this conundrum.

Information about me:

Nationality : Indian
Post MBA Goal : Option 1-> Consulting in Big 5
Option 2-> I am inclined in pursing my MAM(Master of Adv Management ) degree from Yale. Yale selects students from the GNAM schools( of which Smurfit is one).
Total work Ex : 4 years.
Age : 26years.
GMAT score. : 630 (giving the exam again as consulting companies require a good GMAT score).

Hoping to get some expert suggestions considering both the options.

Regards,
Himanshu

Hi, and congrats on your scholarship and admits! One big consideration is: where do you want to work after graduation? If you'd prefer to be US-based, you'd be better off with GWU. If you're leaning towards Europe, then you'll have a better chance building a network at Smurfit. Schools' alumni bases/recruitment pipelines tend to be geographically based, so think carefully about where you would like to live.

Hope that helps a bit - keep me posted on any other questions :)

Hi Nisha,

Thanks for your response. Personally i do not have any location preferences. I want to get in the big 5 consulting companies.

I would like to go for a school which would provide me with the above mentioned job / networking opportunities.

Also would like to go to a place where there are a fewer working visa issues.

Considering above factors, which school should i go for?

Regards,
Himanshu

Hi Himanshu,

What I would suggest doing is researching (starting with the schools'website) what the placement rate is for consulting and also, talking to current students/alumni at each school about that experience with consulting recruiting. Regarding the working visa issue - this is going to vary by company and country so you'll want to speak to the schools' career services office about this.

Best of luck!
Nisha
