Best Consulting prospects Babson vs. JHU Carey School? Please help?
I am new here seeking MBA advice
For starters - I am not going to an Ivy but am making a career switch to focus on consulting
A bit about me - 6 years work exp, most recently at finance firm, general management
Which MBA program do you think has best potential for ROI and prospects in consulting
Babson - 2yr vs. JHU Carey - 2yr
Babson - more established program, some consulting prospects but it's expensive, also thinking this is more regional, no mandatory overseas education, historical stats
JHU - more risky b/c its a new program but new dean was partner fromand I could leverage other resources in the school for a consulting position. No solid published stats for career placement. Interested in renewable energy so the research institution could be helpful? Mandatory overseas education and maybe the brand of JHU has more global mobility?
Consulting is my goal, given these two options, which in your opinion may be more positively received by recruiters? Is Hopkins a smart risk to take? Could be large payoffs in a few years but want to know your take.
Thanks in advance
-also I have scoured the internet and given all I have read it is still unclear to me which is the smarter way to move forward
