MBA Uconn vs Colorado vs Crosby


Omo37
Hi everyone,
I am a new member here. My name is Jerry from Thailand. I got MBA offers from these three schools.
(1) University of Connecticut
(2) University of Missoutri at Columbia (Crosby)
(3) University of Colorado at Boulder (Leeds)

I am going to major in finance. I heard that Uconn has a reputation in Finance area. As an international, I concern a bit much about the cost and chances to get a job. Which schools you suggest?
Thank you very much. I am so confusing.

I would rank them in order of graduating salary:

University of Connecticut ($90K)
University of Colorado--Boulder (Leeds) ($69K)
University of Missouri (Trulaske) ($56K)

Missouri is the least expensive, and therefore attracts the most applications for the fewest number of seats.

I think Connecticut is clearly the better choice: I see Forbes ranks it 37th in the US:

Agree with Duncan. I think it's Connecticut's relative proximity to NYC that drives up the salaries: being close to Wall Street is good for finance jobs.

I'd see the only real choice here as being between Connecticut and Missouri - Missouri being good for more regional placements if that's what you're looking for. It's actually becoming a more competitive school (at least in terms of GMAT scores) so that might make the learning environment a bit more engaging.
