Hi All,

- I have been accepted to pace, seton hall, and st.john's for their mba programs in finance.

- I currently work in logistics/international finance and would like to make the move to financial analyst with the hope of doing investment management in the future.

- Please let me know which school you think is my best option at this point.
(i know, i know, they are not top schools but this is what im working wiht right now and I'm looking for some positive feedback)

-Also, i am waiting on a response from rutgers mba program. I would choose rutgers if i were to get accepted.

what are your thoughts on seton hall's mba program?


I would say to go with Pace. Have you every considered Baruch?


I didnt apply to baruch which i am now regretting. It is too late to consider now as i am planning to start in spring 2013.


Baruch would have the better of them give or take Rutgers SOB network or Tobins risk program.

So, rutgers is now, unfortunately, out of the question. It is now between Pace and Seton Hall. Seems that the consensus on here is for Pace.

I want to choose Pace but I would be commuting from NJ which would only add to the cost of school. Do you think the better opportunities for an internship/FT work in the financial district is enough to make the decision and go to Pace?

As far as Seton Hall, the location is the main thing that is keeping me interested because it is only a 25 minute drive from my house. Havent been able to find much positive info on their MBA program except for the standard evaluation websites.

Going to call both schools and see what additional information I can get but I also wanted to see any opinions/suggestions I could get from posting here.



None of the above.


If you can't get into at least a top-50 MBA and more likely a top 20-30, you won't get into IB, let alone have buyside recruitment.


I work in Investment Management. Don't bother with any of those schools.
