Carnegie Melllon or Sloan. Stanford too, but good luck getting in.

(1) Access to networks and opportunities in the public and social sectors (esp. education / workforce development) without necessarily having to do an MPP; (2) Opportunity to take electives in areas like analytics, computer science, and advanced economics; (3) Emphasis on entrepreneurship, and in particular, tech entrepreneurship. I'd like to find a school where there are strong connections to the engineering department and collaboration and cross-pollination are highly encouraged.

Obviously there are the obvious suspects, but some insight into what schools might be better than others (e.g., Sloan better than Wharton on point 3) or any "under the radar" schools would be helpful. Thanks!

Yale also has an entrepreneurial institute, but not as much clout in the valley.

Booth is really big on entrepreneurship; it has a series of labs and funding for folks trying to start their own business.

I’m interviewing for a tech exit and one of the panel interviewers is an ex-Deloitte SM that is basically best friends with the partner I work under frequently. The ex-Deloitte SM said they wouldn’t mention that I’m interviewing to the partner. The hiring manager from the tech exit basically said I had the job if I want it. What are the chances the ex-Deloitte SM tells the partner and vetos my hire at the tech exit out of respect for their friend?
