MIT Sloan ($$$) vs. GSB (no $)? Post MBA goal is MBB or FAANG PM.

Damn that’s a tough one . Usually I would say go for $$& but it is GSB .

If you can afford it then go to GSB . If you think you’ll struggle and can’t maximize your mba than go to Sloan . Both will get you to mbb or FAANG, but I think the network and long term opportunities at GSB will be unrivalled.

Many of your mba colleagues will be financially well off and/ or sponsored so money does become a big factor when networking and having fun . Being poor in a great university can destroy the experience

Never ever not go to GSB/HBS. 150k is irrelevant over a 30-year career, and there’s a crevasse between GSB and Sloan in opportunities, market value and recognition

Depends on your long term goal, if you want to pivot to finance in long term, then it’s GSB

Would doing a Graduate Certificate + CSCP certification be a good substitute for doing a full MS or MBA (without having to take GRE/GMAT)?

Any CPAs out there that decided to buy and run a business? Curious if my theory that after advising businesses how to run efficiently and effectively, that I could fairly easily deploy this experience in an existing business. Obviously I'm not ignorant that there will be obstacles to overcome but ultimately think it would be successful. For added context, I have an MBA, have focused of business development so understand sales and dealing with customers.

Thoughts welcome!

Recent career-switcher here. While I’m a veteran with the ad process, I am new to the UX agile process. Is it normal to not use briefs whatsoever? Is it normal for the UX research lead to have a stakeholder workshop (sans designers) to think of concept “thought starters,” then have a separate meeting with the UX design lead to vote on which 1 of 3 concepts to proceed with? In advertising, this is analogous to the client and researchers doing the campaign idea then telling the CD to execute it.
