Diversity of cohort


Hi,



I'm about to accept my MBA seat but confused between 2 universities on the grounds of scholarship and class diversity.

One of them has a 50% of the class with people from my nationality but I have a higher scholarship there..the other one has a more diverse class but lower scholarship. Can someone throw light on the what is the better way to decide?



Does having a relatively less diverse class impact significantly?



Thanks

The short of it is that business schools often use scholarships to attract stronger candidates who could get into better programs elsewhere. Usually, while getting a scholarship is great for the short term, it doesn't pay off in the long-term, if it means you have to turn down a stronger MBA with better career outcomes.
