NYU Stern Vs. UChicago Booth for an MBA?
I'm currently working in strategy for TV/Entertainment and looking to get an MBA (in strategy and corporate finance) in order to initially pivot into Consulting and in the long-term work in business development for a media company. I got accepted to NYU (with a full-ride) and Cornell so I was leaning towards NYU because it would be a more financially responsible choice, even if it was ranked slightly lower.
However, this week I was accepted to UChicago, without a scholarship, and because it's an M7 school and ranked 3rd, I'm not sure what to do. NYU would have more connections to media & entertainment whereas Booth has a higher rate of placing consultants (40% of their MBA class vs. NYU's 30%). Also, Booth has a more cross-functional academic approach where as NYU is far more customizable... Any advice from people in consulting or business development would be immensely helpful.
