Mccombs is a slight tier higher than Owen. But If you’re focused on healthcare or Nashville exits you can make the case in Vanderbilt’s favor

McCombs is the better school of the two.

Owen is not know for its MBA, more for it's undergrad and MSF. You'll be in the weakest program at that school without a path to a good post-MBA job.

McCombs dominates Texas and is a stronger MBA, you'll have smarter classmates and better placed alums.

In terms of prestige McCombs> Owen.
However, as rightly said find your fit before you sit!

All the best:)

I’m interviewing for a non-technical, mid-senior level role at Stripe. I know culture is really important to them.

I know efforts like this can rub people the wrong way, so I just wanna be careful before deploying them. Anyone who works there or knows them able to comment on this?
