All UMass campuses are public.

UMass Boston has a flexible evening MBA that's really aimed at full-time workers. I don't think you'll get great careers services there. I think a traditional, cohort-based day MBA will have better placement services for international students, since most participants in part-time programs don't need intensive careers services.

Read their website. Their "full time" programme is you attending the part-time classes in the evenings and at weekends, but compressing the part-time degree into 2 years. You won't have a traditional, cohort-based, daytime MBA.

I am not sure how you ended up choosing between two schools that are so very different. Perhaps read these posts?

Crummer has a really strong part-time program as well, this is the school's strength, but since its full-time program is aimed at recent graduates, I don't think it's really comparable to other full-time programs in the US, at least for most applicants. Nor does it have the same kind of post-program outcomes as the ranked programs.

It really depends on your goals, expectations, and your current career level. If you're an early-career applicant you might also consider master in management programs instead, something like the Duke MMS program or Sloan's MS in Management would most likely be better choices.

Why are you applying only to US schools. Since few schools start in the Spring, your options are limited. Europe might have better options: Bradford, EDHEC, HEC?
