Torn between deciding: - haas (120k$ scholarship) -LBS (no $) On company MBA sponsorship as well so would pocket some of that money if choosing haas. Career goals would be to break into tech product management (currently in consulting). I also have personal reasons to live and travel a lot abroad and would love the opportunity to pursue an international career potentially in the future as well (which is why I was considering lbs). What are y’all’s thoughts?

Haas hands down, especially if you want tech. There are many ways to go abroad you do not need to throw hundreds of thousands at an MBA to pursue an international career.

Leverage Haas to get something out of LBS

100% haas if you want to go into tech from consulting. with the $$ it’s absolutely a no brainer.

How are you going to break into Tech PM if you’re sponsored?

So I was planning to do a PM internship and if it goes well Id be willing to turn down sponsorship to pursue the career switch. But if I find that PM is not for me after the internship I’ll have the opportunity to return to my firm for the sponsorship.

Yeah, I went to LBS and absolutely loved it but it’s tough to turn that amount of money down. Are you sure you would pocket the money though? I would make sure of that before you make a decision. On the tech side you could definitely do that from LBS, particularly if you want to work abroad, but haas will position you well for that too.

I was inclined towards lbs at first but after receiving scholarship news from haas, I’ve been torn between deciding!

Haas no brainer

Make sure to read the fine print on the scholarship... usually it says that outside sponsorship + scholarship amount cannot exceed tuition, and if so they knock it off the scholarship

^ this. My sponsorship clearly states it will cover the remainder after any direct or third party scholarships.

Yes the way it works at D is since you technically take loans out and d reimburses afterwards, then D will pay you half of any scholarships as a bonus

Also I said “he” but could also very well be a “she” 😅

Stats?

I’m currently at LBS and while I think it is an awesome option, I’d choose Haas over it given your goals and the scale of the scholarship. That being said I would reach out to LBS first to see what more they can offer you cause they’d likely toss you a bone at the very least given how much Haas offered
