The question is as stated in the subject headline. However, my concerns are, in terms of valuation, that how is the MBA program at Georgia State regarded by ibanks?. As stated on its website, "the Flexible MBA (Full-Time or Part-Time) from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business. Robinson's Flex MBA is ranked seventh in the nation in U.S. News & World Report's 2010 "America's Best Graduate Schools" edition and has been in the top 10 for 14 consecutive years."
I can understand that there are also better options available offered in Georgia, such as UGA and Emory, but in terms of tuition cost, GSU is much cheaper and from the sound of that statement above, it holds a pretty solid reputation for ranking.
I'm planning to apply for summer associate with BB. Anyone know anybody who already in the ibanking industry coming from GSU MBA?
GSU Flex MBA
There are a lot of tempting online programs available to us today. Our users seemed to agree that a Flex MBA from GSU wasn't likely going to yield the results you would hope for.
User @Affirmative _Action_Walfus offers some ideal alternatives:
MBAs that will give you a reasonable shot at IB (not listed in order of quality).
And in Europe: LBS, INSEAD and to a lesser extent Oxford, Cambridge, Bocconi, and HEC.
So really, there are 27 MBA programs in the world that I'd attend if I wanted to do IB somewhere.
A lot of these schools place more into regional offices than NYC: Texas/Rice-Houston, Northwestern/Michigan-Chicago, Emory-Atlanta, Gtown/UNC-midatlantic, UCLA/CAL-SF
Other schools like Harvard, U Chicago, Wharton, Stanford will give you more geographic flexibility.
