A lot of people tend to misspell Colombia 🇨🇴 as Columbia. I wonder if there’s actually a Colombia MBA lol

I don’t think it’s silly... Ross def has more of a community feel, nicer students in my opinion. but Columbia is Columbia

Makes sense. Good luck with the decision! I’m headed to CBS and one of my BFFs is going to Ross 😊

If you want your job opps in Chicago, go to Ross. If you want to be in NY long term, Columbia. Very few ppl from Columbia take jobs outside of NY/SF

As a fairly recent Ross grad, I have friends all over the country now. Yes, Chicago is the largest, but significant portions of my class are in NYC, SF and Seattle.

I’ve never heard of a Ross MBA.

Columbia has better brand equity and will hold more weight on your resume

Controversial take: go where you’re happiest and feel like you’d flourish professionally the most. Ivy League degrees’ reputations are inflated by mere fact that they’re in the Ivy League. To play the prestige game, I know of Harvard, Princeton, Stanford undergrads that went to Ross. They all seemed happy with their choice 🤷🏻‍♂️

@B1 lol I was referring to those individuals referenced by D1, not all ivy undergrads

Columbia is higher ranked, but I guess it all depends on what you want to do and where you want to be post-MBA.

As someone mentioned above, Ross is very strong in the Midwest while Columbia will do you well on the East coast.

I'm a Ross grad and absolutely loved my 2 years there. In the end you should go with your gut as you're going to get a great experience either way.

Ross alumni base and Ann Arbor is an amazing town. It’s ranked very highly and well known internationally in the right communities. (Not a Ross MBA) it’s number 12 v. Number 8 so likeee I think you’re pretty good to go with where you’d be happier

This is a silly question.

I’d consider the value of the surrounding city, esp if you’re trying to pivot to a lesser known industry. In-year internships can make a difference in some cases (e.g., CBS is stronger for luxury goods and retail given the ties to the city). For traditional industries, go where you feel happiest!
