Hi,

I am a 25-year old male (today is my birthday!) with a Masters degree in Economics from the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) and 3 years of work experience at Thomson Reuters (information services company). I have been based in Brussels, Geneva, Singapore and New York and worked in sales, business analysis, customer support, market research and corporate strategy (rotational program). I've scored 640 on the gmat (63% Q, 73% V, 5.0 AWA) [with preparation from Veritas prep].

I am looking for an MBA that is great value for money, offers high quality non-boring teaching, a
friendly atmosphere and a good work/life balance (a warm climate would be a plus).

Post-MBA I want to return to my own company or move into a new industry which offers a good work/life balance (no BCG and 70 hours a week for me!). Hopefully in roles with more responsibility.

I don't care about international brand recognition, but would expect it to be a top 100 school (as there are sadly enough too many schools out there that simply want to rip off your money). Do you have any toughts on schools I should look into?

Much appreciate your input,
HappyBuddy



By the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I

Wow the challenge is the "work-life balance," since b-school is challenging and takes up most of your time with classes, projects, studying etc. If you like warm climates, I think you should look at UT Austin, UNC Keenan Flagler, FSU, University of Florida & UGA (Terry).
