In long term I'm particularly interested in entrepreneurship and establishing my own ventures. If I'm not able to start a profitable business while at school then probably after MBA I'd like to go to consulting or (tech?) product management to pay off my student debt. Everybody in the US keeps telling me to go with Wharton and everybody outside the US to pick MIT Sloan. Also, one more aspect that after MBA I'd like to stay in NY or Northern California. Is Wharton's ranking and reputation somewhat superior to MIT Sloan? Any recommendations?

Wharton has a slightly higher reputation and is a big market for NYC (not sure about west coast for either), but if you're very focused on entrepreneurship and technology, I think MIT has the edge because of its world-class (non-MBA) technology and engineer programs. I think the school also touts relationships between the MBA program and the engineering program for creating startups. Of course, you should definitely visit both schools to see which culture fits you better. Good luck with an enviable choice between 2 great programs!

Thanks for a helpful reply, Capr!

I'm leaning towards MIT but maybe someone knows if there's a difference between these two schools in terms of access to VCs as an entrepreneur? Wharton has historically sent a huge number of people to work in finance. Does that mean their graduates can take advantage and leverage from Wharton's VCs network? Or is there virtually no advantage over MIT from that perspective?
