So what do you think?

I'd say that they're about even reputation-wise: not top-tier schools by any means, but they're both AACSB-accredited, which is important.

Scranton's program does offer a concentration in marketing that you might want to check out. Although it's questionable whether a specialized MBA will provide any advantage over a more general one.

My suggestion would be to check both out and meet with representatives from each school. That way you'll get a better sense of the fit.

This is sort of an old post, so I'm sure he's made up his mind by now - but I tend to agree with you. Scranton's more a regional program, while Suffolk's Boston location puts it in a better networking position. Salaries are (marginally) better as well.

However: neither school is super competitive, with an average GMAT of around 500-510 for admitted students. There are certainly many better schools in the regions.
