Hi, I was wondering which college I should select for undergrad business. I've been accepted to IU, Purdue, and Butler, and have been wondering which choice would present me with the most career options. I've heard that IU is very strong, but after visiting IU and Purdue's business schools, I feel as if Purdue has the upper hand when it comes to networking and career options. I've decided that I will major in either accounting or finance with minors in data analytics and economic consulting. I've also looked into Purdue's financial engineering and am very intrigued by it. What plan gives me the best job options after college?

I would recommend Indiana University if you are a direct admit into the business school. If you are not do not go here because applying into it is a nightmare.
Definitely do not go to Butler as it is a complete non target I believe.

Honestly I would pick Indiana and be prepared to work your ass off to get into the prestigious student run funds and finance clubs. Once you get into these organizations you will have many networking opportunities. Also the business school is very good. Idrk much about purdue but not as good I think
