Vanderbilt (Owen) vs Rochester (Simon) MBA
I have been accepted at both Vandy and Simon full-time MBA programs. However, looking at the stats I am in a bit of a dilemma.
1. I live in NYC and would like to return after graduating. But I don't see a problem accepting a job in the southest or Texas if offered. However if I had to choose between Southeast/ Tx and NYC, I would definitely choose the latter one.
2. I would like to concentrate on Entrepreneurship and Finance/Investment Banking. I read Simon is ranked high in Finance, but some of your posts suggest that Vandy is placed better in IB whether it's South or NYC.
3. Not that it would matter much because I am willing to sacrifice 2 years of my life for the sake of my education, but I was in Rochester and I didn't like it that much. Not sure about Nashville though as I haven't visited, but like I said I have lived in Manhattan for the past few years and this is where it feels like home.
Please help me with any inside info you might have. I need to make up my mind about which institution I am joining for my MBA program.
