Duke Fuqua MBA vs. Vanderbilt Owen MBA?

Has anyone attended either of these schools or recommend either of these schools for situations:

A.) Someone who has worked in IB, wants to get an MBA -> PE
B.) Someone who has not worked in IB, wants to get an MBA-> IB
C.) Someone who has worked in tech (Google/Amazon) and wants to switch over to finance/IB after MBA

Is one school better than the other for an MBA or does it not really matter for someone trying to get into IB or PE?
