Thanks a lot Nitin, I am interested in continuing in Tech business as a BDM. As Boston is a bit tech oriented MBA I am lil more inclined to go for it..not decided yet!

Hey Suvrat,
I don't know about your career interest brother, but 'consulting' is mentioned somewhere in the discussion. So i searched with the criteria 'consulting' as specialization with avg salary above 75K. I got Fisher in top 23 US schools but Boston University ( if i am not wrong boston college and boston university are different) is no where to be seen. The link is GradQuery 2.0 (c)2004 USN≀. Moreover you can yourself set your criteria at usnews. The link for that is: usnews.com: America's Best Graduate Schools 2007: Business School Search

Hope it would help a bit

I cannot find any great differentiating factor between these two schools. If it was me i would have gone to the school which costs the least.

I think in your case it is Boston (if i am correct with the expense calculations )

Confusing situation.
Boston is good for tech.
Also, I thnk Ohio doesnt have a specialisation in IT. Ohio also have placements limited to the state companies.
I would go for Boston.

Thanks a lot Susie..the living cost at Ohio is pretty less as compared to BU but BU is a good place for tech..These guyz have put me in a dilemma!


See I'd be careful abt that... I recall now that my VP & CTO is from BU. The guy is a genius... so I do not think that BU had anything to do with it. In all probability it was an exec MBA.

Go Ohio!

Do the math.. Include cost of living at both places...

Boston Univ is ok for exec... Ohio as a univ is good.. just like Penn State... So I would go to Ohio
