Rose’s Answer

Almost every college offers a business program. Since you are already close to the end of high school, you will need to research the curricula, requirements, and costs of potential schools soon. US News & World Report is a comprehensive and reliable source of information. Community colleges are another good option. Many have agreements with local universities to guarantee admission after completion of a special program.

Nina’s Answer

If you're willing to risk it all and put all your self-confidence on the line, you could always go to a school like Harvard, which has one of the most prestigious business programs in the world (at the graduate level), with an economics major for undergraduates, and a law school that spans across both business and law. If you want something a bit less grand, there is Vanderbilt University, which has a massive business program that goes all the way to MBA and farther, and a very vibrant social and educational environment.

Parth’s Answer

Hi Anthony,


I agree with Rose that there are a lot of variable that will impact your decision when selecting business school. Another thing i will add is that your standardized test scores. Each school publishes profile of their new students from previous year or quarter. So you can review that and compare it with your own scores.


Another variable would be companies you would want to work for. For example, schools like San Jose State has a decent business program. Definitely Berkeley and UCLA have better programs but San Jose State has a lot of collaboration with different companies in the Silicon Valley and that helps with job placements.


Thanks,

Brennan’s Answer

As noted here, there are numerous business schools. Some are better or more expensive than others but all will give you a business background. I would encourage you to get some outside the classroom experience with a summer or part time job. Either start your own business or work somewhere long enough that you learn many jobs at the place of employment and how they manage 'behind the scenes.' These experiences will give you great context to what you will learn in the classroom.

Kajal’s Answer

HI Anthony,


There are lots of factors you have to keep in mind while choosing a college such as location(in state vs out of state tuition), job opportunities etc.


I would go to US News and see school rankings and start there. Make a list of things that you absolutely need vs things you don't care as much about and this will help you eliminate options. For example, when i went to business school, i wanted to be in Texas and decided to go to UT Austin for my masters in business.
