American University- Kogod School of Business


demo
Am considering taking my full time MBA in Fall 2018 but would like to know you guys thoughts in terms of school quality and attractiveness in terms of post graduate job employ-ability. Their school fees is quite steep as well at $85,000 for fall 2017 but the customer service guys explained one could get 25 to 35% scholarship depending on the strength of one's application. Am also aware that living in Washington D.C could be expensive.

Am more interested in the school quality for now. So your thoughts on what you know or must have heard would be really appreciated?

I visited Kogod - AU in 2016 when we were exploring programs for my wife. I can tell you that Kogod is a good school in the sense that the teaching faculty is good, and it attracts a healthy mix of students. I liked the campus, it's small but away from the hustle bustle of DC unlike GW. Of course Kogod is no where near competitive as Georgetown - the go to place for MBA in DC or UMD/JHU for Baltimore.

Usually Kogod see George Washington (GW), George Mason (GMU) and Howard University as competitors in DC. Georgetown is a league apart. UMD/Johns Hopkins are in Baltimore while UVA, W&M, VTech, JMU round up remaining good universities in VA.

If you are a US Citizen then you'd have good post MBA employability given that Federal government recruits actively in the region. Consulting firms like Deloitte, Booz Allen would seek you as they are regular in such campuses in DC hiring for Federal Consulting. If you are an international student - then it's a different ball game altogether. DC is probably the worst place in US you could end up since 1) it's expensive. I lived in Herndon, VA a suburb and 60 min Metro ride from Kogod - at the end of silver line. I was paying $1450 rent/mo for a 1 bed room flat. 2) Almost all consulting/accounting firms, small firms deal in some way or form with Federal agencies / contracting / sub-contracting so having US Citizenship with Security clearance is a must.

School fees will be steep since it's a private institution like GW or JHU and unlike GWU, UVA or W&M.
