Weekend MBA: Accepted at UCLA Anderson Vs Michigan Ross Vs Foster  [#permalink]

Hello everyone, I am fortunate to get acceptance from part-time MBA programs at UCLA Anderson and Michigan Ross. I'm currently an engineer at FAANG tech company here in Seattle. My future plans are to move into Product Manager/Business Strategy role staying in the tech industry, eventually advancing to business executive roles/startup. I plan on staying in Seattle during my MBA and commute over weekends for the MBA. I plan to settle down in Seattle/Bay Area post-graduation. Any thoughts on which program might be better suited based on my goals?

UCLA Anderson pros:
1) Strong brand name on the west coast and in tech
2) I have more flexibility where I can attend classes every weekend to once every three weeks.
3) Strong California network

Michigan Ross pros:
1) Program looks stronger based on rankings
2) Designed to be completed in 2 years vs 3 years at Anderson
3) Awarded 10K scholarship which brings cost almost closer to UCLA Anderson
4) MAP might give me the ability to gain hands-on experience in a part-time program which isn't an option in other programs.
5) Commute every 2 weeks instead of every week.

I am also considering applying to UW Foster since it is local to Seattle, considerably cheaper and has been growing in rankings due to its placement in tech. However I still dicey on its long-term benefit/credibility. Any opinions on this as well?

Any insight is appreciated :)

Let’s start with understanding that ranking doesn’t mean s**t. Look at the career support provided by each school for the part time MBA program.

With all the tech companies extending themselves to the silicon beach area, adjuncts, industry leaders, industry disrupters will be easily accessible to UCLA than Michigan.

While Michigan has a lot of tech companies recruiting, it can’t beat Stanford/ Berkeley/ UCLA/ USC/ some other UC system MBA programs at tech hiring.
