Party schools!


I know it's probably better to be thinking about the academics as I'm applying, but also I'm trying to put together a list of good party schools! I mean, I'm a single dude in his late 20s, and I can party and still get good grades, you know? Here's what I've got, let me know if you can think of any other good ones!

Anderson (UCLA is OFF THE HOOK! I know this from a personal experience.)
Kellogg (I've heard the parties here are out of control. And Chicago pretty much rules.)
UNO (I don't know if the program is any good, but New Orleans is great, Mardi Gras and all that.)
WP Carey (I went to ASU for a party a couple years ago and it was CRAZY! I drank way too much keg beer.)

USC is typically considered a "party school" for the undergraduate programs. The graduate programs have not had quite the same reputation, but that is not to say there will not be people there who are looking to take advantage of the southern California location and have a good time.

Personally, I think the designation of "party school" is much more relevant in the undergraduate/bachelor's degree programs than in the MBA program.

Thanks, JeanL - USC is definitely on my list. I think you're right about that designation being more relevant to undergrad programs, but hey, this is one thing that I'm looking for in a business school. Not my top priority but it plays a factor.

How can your list not include McCombs? Austin is like Tempe's big brother. I know this from experience.

Oh yeah, Austin!

It seems like the key is picking a party city, and then from there picking a business school.

So so far we have these awesome PARTY cities:

Austin
New Orleans
Chicago
Los Angeles
Phoenix

WHAT ELSE PARTY PEOPLE??!!

Sasin MBA in Thailand! :D
INSEAD also seems to party pretty hard.

I just spend a bit of time in Austin, can't say that I love it though. However, if you're a big fan of live music it seems like quite the place to go to. Either that or I should be mixing around more in Austin.

INSEAD - the Singapore campus or the one in France?

I've heard that Bangkok is a cool place.

You can party in a chateau in France! That's pretty cool :)

And yes, Bangkok is a really nice place to go to.. . maybe even to stay

Thought you guys might want some more options for party schools... Princeton Review has a new ranking out. They don't rank business schools, but these top rankers all have business schools:

University of Georgia - Athens
University of Ohio
Penn State
West Virginia University
University of Texas - Austin
University of Florida - Gainsville (Warrington)
University of Iowa

Honorable Mention UC Santa Barbara (no business school there... at least yet.)

Thoughts: I think it's a bit strange that there are so many party schools in the south and the mid-west... I would have thought the coasts would have this OWNED: UCLA, NYU, USC. I mean, come on - Ohio, Iowa, West Virginia??

The Fuqua School of Business at Duke is highly rated and also has a good reputation for parties. Chappel Hill isn't too far away, and there is a large population of undergratuates in the Raleigh-Durham area.

Oh yeah, Chapel Hill. I'd be hard pressed to finish an MBA program with Chapel Hill as a distraction. UNC is also right there, that's an option.

You don't say! What's the survey procedure for getting these statistics?

Hello,

This is one of few interesting discussions. I'm more curious to know which school did you finally go to?
