I am an international student. Currently in a dilemma of choosing the Master program among UVA's MS in Commerce, Umich's Master of Management and Babson's MSEL. My possible future plan after completing the Master program would be to, first, get a job in a giant, preferably in consulting, for 2-3 years, either in US or China is fine. Then, going back to China to establish my own business, hopefully in AI, psychological consulting, global commerce,food, or education fields. My ultimate goal is to be a entrepreneur. So far I have invested and cofounded a biotech company in Chengdu, China, and is also an agent for a wine brand. Any advice for which program might be a better fit for me specifically? I know Babson sounds like a great fit for me so far. Since I will go back to China eventually. school's name brand and reputation matter, and I really don't know if the MSEL program will be most helpful for my future career, to make me a successful entrepreneur, because it's not guaranteed. At least for the other two programs, I can expect what I will learn from them. Not too many Chinese, if there is any, recognize Babson College. Most of my friends do not recommend Babson College because of its reputation in China, But they don't know too much about any of these three programs. I would love to get some more professional opinions from others who know the programs well. Thank you in advance!

Hi! Just came across your post and going through the same dilemma right now (UVA's Comm vs. UMich's MM). If you're still on WSO, may I know which school you're in and how's your experience so far? Much appreciated!
