yale. said doesn’t have near the network, especially in the US. also, while you save time and money, you miss out on the summer internship commonly obtained via OCR, which could be critical to obtaining the job you want once you graduate

Yale SOM for sure if you want to recruit in the US. Oxford If you’re open to working in the UK or Asia right after graduation and have the ability to get the appropriate visa
