Can’t decide between Cornell’s Metro vs. Americas EMBA program. They both seem to be great and offer an Cornell MBA upon graduation. Americas costs about 155k while the Metro NY costs 205k. Both programs are 60 credits in different formats. I can’t seem to understand the difference in price. I like the Americas program because of its flexibility (can attend from selected cities across the US so I would not be stuck in NY). I like the Metro NY for the in-person classroom environment.

T2 strategy consulting associate (pre-MBA) with an offer to join PE boutique. Worth it if the eventual goal is working at a MM PE or large VC fund? What would be the most realistic route? 2Y PE > MBA > VC? PE Form has a SaaS focus so I’d assume that’s a plus.
