Table: How to Pick an MBA Program
Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding which B-school best suits your needs:
FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME?
Can you afford two years out of the workforce, or would you be better off taking night classes and keeping your day job?
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
Does marketing at an Old Economy company sound exciting, or do you hope to sell a new technology? Choose a program that bolsters your all-around abilities and hones your skills to meet your goal.
Does the school offer an inside track to the kinds of companies you'd like to work for? Will you be studying with the school's star management professors and working on real-world projects?
