I am currently an Internal Auditor at a fortune 20 healthcare company. I am on a good promotion track, but am concerned I may see stagnation in my career around the manager level. I have always planned on going to Bschool, and have a GMAT of 710, but recently am having second thoughts.

I have been told I have a shot at getting into schools in the Stern, Duke, Darden range. Kellog and Booth are out of my range I would imagine.
That being said, I was born and raised in MN, and the UofMinn is driving distance from my house.

I want to know what graduating from a school like Duke is worth over graduating from a school like the UofMinn. I would need to know there is a substantial career difference between a school in the top 16 range over the top 25 range. If there is no material difference, I’ll go to the UofM or I won’t go to school at all and just continue working.

For me to leave MN would entail selling a house, quitting my job, leaving a lifetime of friends and family, and starting a new life somewhere else. I don’t take these things lightly.

I want to be in healthcare related consulting, M&A, or Ibanking if I did go to school. If I didn’t get into any of those areas, I’d prefer not to go and would continue my current career track. This goes into another half of my question, is it even worth going to the UofMinn if that is my career goal?

With 710 you should consider booth etc if there are your dream schools.

In terms is it worth it. I'm afraid that totally your decision. What are benefits v the costs?

I wouldn't rule out moving out of state for two years. The benefits include wider network, different experiences, new friends. If you want to move into health care You might want to consider Duke.

If money is an issue is there any part time or executive programmes you can do in communiting distance. If its only once every six weeks could you fly?
