So I am thinking of going back to school to get my MBA. I want to work in Chicago when I graduate and I would like to go to school in Chicago, as well. I know Kellogg and Booth have the best reputations in Chicago, but I am not sure if I can get into either of these schools. I'm going to apply to both of them as "dream schools", but they're far from a sure thing. The 2 schools I'm looking at primarily are DePaul (Kellstadt) and UIC (Liautaud). Can anyone tell me what kind of reputation the DePaul and UIC MBA programs have in Chicago?
After graduation, I would like to secure a job as an IB associate or an analyst at a hedge fund/mutual fund. Does anyone know what firms recruits at DePaul and UIC?
Any info you can give is greatly appreciated.
