MBA Podcaster is putting together a show about the cost/benefits of going to a regional business school versus the big name schools. They ask: Is there a special, personalized quality at regional programs that applicants just can’t get at a big name business school?
If the topic interests you, check out the preliminary interviews with representatives from Tulane Business School, Simon Graduate School of Business Administration, Pepperdine and Mays Business School at Texas A&M.
Wendy Flynn, director of admissions at Mays, says one of the hidden benefits of going regional is that the MBA alumni are fervent supporters of their alma matter and new grads from their school, and that can only help B-school students when they’re networking and looking for jobs.
