Friends, what are your thoughts? Chicago Booth or Cornell EMBA? Which would you choose and why? Need some help deciding. Thank you!

It depends what your goals are after the MBA. I feel like Booth would be better if you want to go into strategy or finance. Booth may also have a better global recognition as well. However, if Cornell is offering you a nice scholarship, it’s worth considering. I know a couple of Cornell MBA alums and they’re in tech. Not sure if that’s a coincidence, but they are both doing well.

At this level, the Exec MBA you should choose should mostly be about fit and intended Geography/Travel preferences

Partner calls me in a panic tonight and gets me into a frenzy to the point I'm crying slightly. I rush off the phone bc I know it will take less time to confirm I did it right than to hear him explain why it's a big deal. Then he calls AGAIN and texts saying not to work on it and it can wait until tomorrow. I did it anyway (and I was right)

I feel like it shouldn't be my job to talk partners off the ledge but does anyone else feel stuck with managing over-emotional (male) partners...
