Best schools for Growth Equity Not in the midwest and not HSW
From SoCal doing VC and would like to get a post MBA role in NorCal or SoCal in late stage VC or growth equity.
I really don't want to spend time in the midwest and don't think I'll get into Harvard/Stanford/Wharton, but I'd rather go to Columbia than Booth despite the difference in ranking.
Would I be crazy to choose a school like Yale or Columbia over Booth / Kellogg just because I'd rather spend 2 years on the east coast than the midwest?
Are you open to Haas or Anderson?
Haas yes.Anderson could be good considering I'd be in LA and the network would be strong but I'm already in VC. Idk if UCLA's MBA program is worth 2 years off work and $150K in tuition
Columbia is fine / comparable to Kellogg and booth, but Yale is a step down. Also would you really consider living in New Haven than Chicago? Yes it's close to NYC but your day to day will be bleak.
Why so much Midwest hate?
Realistically Sloan/MIT and Columbia could be worth considering, but outside of that I think you would be doing yourself a disservice targeting non m7 programs.
I wouldn't call it hate, I just would like to be in California after school and would rather go to schools in Cali or NYC. I'd rather not go to schools in a region that I don't see myself living in long term.
Since when Booth/Kellogg is considered better than CBS? I chose Booth over CBS but I always think them as exact same tier and rankings don't mean much if anything's. And speaking of rankings, have you seen this year's FT Times ranking?
Agreed, they're all peers. You can split hairs and say that booth or Kellogg have slightly better placement stats in some areas but realistically it doesn't matter. Outside of H/S personal fit matters a lot more than minor differences in ranking imo.
