We all know that Ivy econ >= non-Ivy business.
But how about Northwestern econ (top 15, no undergrad b-school) vs. Notre Dame's Mendoza b-school? I don't think Notre Dame is up there with the other b-schools like Ross, Stern, McIntire, Haas and Sloan, but I hear Northwestern mentioned frequently as a "semi-target".
How would an industrial engineering/management sciences major from Northwestern be looked at compared to a Northwestern econ or Notre Dame business major?
