Thank you for advice.
I already reviewed some ranking sites like us news and found that university of Missouri has a better ranking but do you think I should rely mainly on this ranking?
Knowing that I'm interested in finance concentration and also seek some entrepreneurship knowledge, which school do you recommend for me ?

These are very different programs: http://business-schools.findthebest.com/compare/75-115/University-of-Missouri-Trulaske-MO-vs-University-of-Missouri-Boulder-Leeds-CO

Missouri is for younger students with stronger academic accomplishments; Missouri is for the opposite. If you want to work in finance, then get into a better school.

How about difference in ranking between two schools. Does it indicate difference in quality of program? If not, how can I set comparison ?

I think you understand that a ranking is a normative methodology to sum and weight attributes. It's simplifying many things into one dimension, but you still need to use your head. Missouri is a higher quality programme, and attracts more able students. However, they are earlier in their career. I think the schools that's closest to where you are in your career and where you are going will be the best fit.

Yes, I think I might go for Boulder in your position. Both schools have a good curriculum in finance. Missouri has great support for more junior people, including a CFA track and a good relationship with Bloomberg. It would not be a bad choice. Boulder seems to be more open about outcomes, and their students go have around five years of experience, like you. I think an employer looking for you would be more likely to come to Boulder.

Don’t discount the Crosby MBA Program as a place to launch your career in Finance because the average student is younger. The program regularly admits students in their mid-twenties and early thirties. Additionally it has an amazing finance curriculum.

The Investment Fund Management course allows students to handle a $1.5 million portfolio.

The program has strong ties to Warren Buffet – not only does the Crosby MBA program offer a class on the Investment Strategies of Warren Buffet, but numerous students are able to venture to Omaha.

Cornell Hall offers the Bloomberg Assessment Test to students interested in finance and business careers for free, and students can access Bloomberg Terminals as part of class and on their own time. Plus, MU is a CFA partner school, so students have top-notch access to resources to pass their Level I and Level II CFA exams.

Additionally, as part of one of the many financial aid packages MU gives, highly qualified Finance students are given the opportunity to teach their own Finance course to undergrads that comes with a stipend and waiver of tuition.

To ignore MU because the average student is younger is a mistake that undermines the high achieving students admitted by the Crosby MBA program. Finance graduates are moving on to careers at Top 20 Banks and well-known firms such as Edward Jones and Ernst & Young.

You do realize that the person you've replied to posted their question in April 2014? Probably has already figured his/her stuff out, is my guess.
