Thanks. But oh my god! There are so many programs, I really don't know how to find a good one. Since New York and Florida are my favorite places, I picked those:
-> University of Rochester, New York
-> Stony Brook University (SUNY) New York
-> University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida
Anyone knows about them? Are they good?

Hi Claiton, I didn't find Miami University in the rankings, but that doesn't mean much, I'm not so skilled in searching.
But I have heard that it's quite good, and sepecially if you are interested in a mix of origin of fellow students, there are a lot of Latin Americans doing that program.

I'm Brazilian, and I prefer to do an MBA ina region where there is a higher percentage of Latinos, that's why I fancied Florida. What you tell me about the students of that MBA suits perfectly what I'm looking for - thanks for that Inof Adriana.
Anyone knows about the quality of those above mentioned IT MBA programs?

Hey guys, I saw that Rochester is one of the 30 top programs in the US, or is that not the same? I think it was in the rankings of Business week.
Anyone knows about tuition?

I have some bad news for you + I think that tuition is exorbitant for this program, it's mainly because this MBA with the concentrations in Computers and Information Systems, which you are interested in, is a 2-year program. It's around 75 000 USD. You have to add some 15 000 USD per year for living costs. It's a fortune - and since it's a full time prog, no way of working besides.
To do this great MBA you better look for funding, a scholarship or something, before applying...

oops, that's a lot of money...
I knew that costs for an MBA are high, but now I'm a bit surprised still. I guess you get what you pay for, and since it is one of those excellent programs, tuition is high.
I'll have a look at those others to compare.
Thanks Adriana...

Hi Claiton, have a look at Stony Brook, tuition seems to be a lot lower.

Thanks MasterXX. Do you know something about the University of Miami as well? There is a one-year MBA with concentrations in IT which I find very interesting. I couldn't figure out how reputation of that MBA is though.
Besides, anyone knows about tuition of that program?

...anyone knows about tuition of that program?

Application fee $50
Tuition - per credit hour $1,350
University Fee - per semester $82*
Student Activity Fee - per semester $35*
Athletic Fee - per semester $52**
Student Wellness Center - per semester $129**
http://www2.bus.miami.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=42&Itemid=116

The Program is a 32-credit, lock-step program, composed of 16 courses taken over a period of two semesters -- so now you will need to calculate a bit ;-)

I would never accept an offer by a school that does not have an on-campus wellness center :-o

At least I get some wellness for my almost 45 000USD ;) and I will probabely need it because I will have to study so hard that my back wil hurt...
An MBA is no gift. But the one year option seems a lot better to me. Not only in terms of costs.
Thanks for that, LaVoz!

Although I would advise you to apply as well to the programs without wellness ;) (btw did you have a look at all what the other offer in terms of wellness? Maybe it's competitive?)
Apparently there are three MBAs corresponding to what you're looking for, why don't you apply to all three of them - if they are in your financial reach. You never know where you'll get accepted, and better have a choice!

Yes, I will apply to several schools. But these three mentioned above I chose randomly, only for geographical reasons, because there were so many MBA with the concentrations I'm looking for that I was lost. But actually the place is not so important as the the quality of the program, and unfortunaltely the costs. Maybe there is some other good but affordable program?

Hi Claiton,
I think you have to count on a high fee if you want to do one of the top programs. Maybe the best is to look for different options inside the framework of your financial possibilities, and not so much the place. Keep in mind that you should not consider an MBA if it doesn't have the required accreditations!
