Darden is ranked better, mainly due to a higher post-graduation salary.

But salary is only one factor. Your choice will depend on your career goals and expectations. In a few situations (such as if you're looking for a career in marketing, sales, or consumer products - Mason is a reasonable option.

However, if you want to land a job in financial services, look closely at Darden. Also, Darden has a strong program if you're an entrepreneur, with support from a research center, a business incubator, etc.

Darden is generally more competitive, based on average GMAT scores. Because of this, I know that candidates will often apply for both, and use Mason as a safety school.

And perhaps relatedly, average salaries for Darden grads tend to be about $30k higher than Mason grads.

Is W&M accredited college? Because when i search the forum or rankings i found it is not listed under AACSB accreditation.
