Rutgers MBA v. PACE MBA

I'm in between Rutgers and PACE for my MBA. Any input would be appreciated.

The back story - I work in the Financial District, but live in Jersey so I pass through lovely Newark everyday. I would be attending school part-time. I have also thought about Seton Hall, but haven't heard anything outstanding about their program.

what do you do for work? and what are your post mba goals? is your firm fully paying for the schooling?

Work in insurance, I'm looking for a position in trading, or a financial analyst position. My undergrad degree isn't in business. The company might help pay for it, but right now it's looking unlikely, so I would be paying for it.

I am pretty sure both are on a similar level but Rutgers has a Masters of financial engineering type program that might be a better choice than an MBA if you definitely want trading. Otherwise, both are more or less the same as far as alum and MBA program/reputation.

well also if youre doing part time realize you most likely wont get on campus recruiting opportunities so you may want to weigh the worth of paying for it solo and what reward you would reap -- definitely wont be getting trading placement from an MBA from either of those , id like to say 'if you network its possible' but the stars are aligned against you... its much harder to break in from a non target MBA than it is from a non target undergrad... that being said if you want (corporate finance) financial analyst position rutgers will suti you well.
