Stanford vs. Harvard vs. Booth for Finance


Greg.L7
Hey all,

What is the current thinking around the best US MBA program for finance?

Booth seems to be the logical choice, since it has a concentration in finance and good placements in the various fields - private equity, VCs, etc.

But what about Harvard and Stanford? Would these be competitive with Chicago? I'm thinking I want to work in San Francisco after I graduate - would Stanford be better simply because of proximity?

What sort of finance?

Stanford and Berkeley will be best for top MBA roles in the Bay area. Wharton is a close third. Booth would be better than HBS.

Private equity or hedge funds.

It looks like Stanford's salaries are higher on average than Berkeley - so it feels like I should use Berkeley as a "safety" school.
