U of San Diego Vs U of Texas, Dallas


Rex Rk
Hi,

I have recently been admitted to both of these schools : University of San Diego (MBA International Management Track) and University of Texas at Dallas (MBA Full-Time). I have tried looking for a post dedicated to University of San Diego but to no avail. To my understanding, U of San Diego is not ranked in US News but it's ranked at 59 in FT Global MBA while U of Texas is ranked at 37 in US News. Both are located in areas where Tech Companies are in abundance and in-fact I am looking to get into IT-Consulting after MBA.

I am an international student and intend to work in US after MBA (if possible) and I am under this impression that pursuing MS/MBA from U of Texas would make me more employable to the Clients as opposed to a single degree from U of San Diego (taking into the account the 1 year OPT). I am confused, though, if these are the only points I should be considering.

I have been offered scholarships from both the schools and I expect that the expenses would be more or less the same.

My profile : 4 years of Work Ex in IT and Healthcare Sector.
Indian Citizen,
GMAT - 720.

I would be so glad if anyone could shed a few lights on these schools. What's your take?

I don't know if it's true that an MBA/MS will be more valuable to potential employers than just an MBA. More important is probably whether your targeted employers know about the school you did your MBA from, and if they have a good recruiting relationship with it.

I would look at the companies you'd like to work for and see where their currently employees did their MBAs. In general, there's probably going to be strong regional placements at these schools - you would probably want to go to USD if you wanted to work in Southern California or other parts of the southwest, or UTD if you were targeting Dallas/Fort Worth.
