Cornell Hotel School or Notre Dame finance for undergrad?
Hey guys, I'm an international student trying to make this big decision so I'd love to know what people who actually know what they're talking about think about my options.
- I got pretty much the same financial aid from both schools, so cost is not a factor.
- My short-term goal would probably be to break into IB because I would love to work in PE eventually. Once I have some capital, my long-term goal is to buy (or maybe even start) small businesses, doing something similar to PE (for lack of a better term) at a tiny scale with my own funds.
- From what I've gathered, Cornell seems to have a slightly better brand name, but that slight advantage over ND might be erased when employers read "hotel administration" in my resume instead of finance, economics, or anything less vocational. Should I be concerned? To be honest, I'm much more interested in finance and general business than hospitality itself, so I might even try to transfer internally to Dyson if it would provide better opportunities.
In short, I'm looking for some help gauging the reputation of the two options I have. Which one do you guys think would provide an easier path to achieve my goals and why?
