If you are looking for a strong international reputation, you have to try to get into NYU Stern or Columbia. You could also think about Cornell University, Johnson, which is not located in New York City, but in Ithaca (3 hours from NYC).

agreed about the top schools in NYC -- Stern and Columbia. but if you are not worried about out-of-state fees, there are other b-schools in the region that lie in other states, but are closer than Cornell, like Wharton in Philadelphia and Yale in New Haven. anyway take a look. good luck.

these are all accredited and pretty good programs overall. keep in mind that hofstra is a bit outside of NYC. and remember too that fordham and st.johns are both religious-affiliated schools. i dont know if that matters to you or not, but i just thought i would say it anyway.

I guess that this does not affect the content of the MBA courses in any way. Fordham has a good name in the US and I think it is also has the strongest international reputation of the programs mentioned by efthimaras.

no, i suppose you are right about the content of the mba programs. but i imagine being a catholic or jesuiut school perhaps affects campus life to some degree.

The MBA listings on this website are sorted according to popularity (=no. of user views), i.e. you should particularily consider the first 5-10 programs in "New York".

Hi guys. I'm from Greece as well (greetings Efthimara arhige!).

I've applied to various US business schools. I've already been accepted at Pepperdine in Malibu, California. However, I think I'm mostly interested in NYC. I got the boot from Columbia but I have my eye on Fordham or Baruch.

What would you guys do? Would you pick Pepperdine as it seems to be the best choice, or would you wait for the rest that I mentioned? How would you compare those 3? I also consider Uni of Miami and San Diego State University (sorry for throwing in so many..).

TIA

Hi Tia. Are you waiting to hear back from Fordham and Baruch or are you just thinking of applying? I think of the three others, I would be most happy with Pepperdine. First off, it's in Malibu. That's which is where rich people from L.A: go to live when they retire. I'm not saying that is a deal-breaker or anything, but it is a good sign that the place is nice, especially if you like to surf or want to learn. :) But besides that, Pepperdine is a school with a great reputation for business. I don't really know much about the programs at SDSU or Miami.

Is there someone who knows about St.John's, Longisland and Hoftra.
I'm condidering to go to their accounting course, but I acutally don't know their reputation. Considering St. John's program at accounting, I guess the classes are so many(more than 60 degrees). I'm from Asian, so I can't actually find the resourses their reputation and atomsphere except one of the famouse B-school, NYU and Columbia in NYC.

As far as reputation is concerned, I would say #1 Hofstra, #2 St. Johns, dont know the third one you name. However, you should be aware that Hofstra is not located in NYC but one hour away from the city in upstate NY.

Thank you very much!!

Yes, I know the Hofstra's location, which is located to take about 1 hour from NYC(Manhattan). As your suggestion, had I better to go to Hofstra MBA course compared to St john's MBA because Hofstra's reputation is better than St John's and Hofstra's MBA couse is 2-year-fulltime-daytime compared to St john's 2-year-fulltime-evening? And Considering that St John's loacation is separated Manhattan, Queens and Staten island, the school and study atomosphere in Hofstra is better than St John's? Someone helps me!

Is St. John's located in Jamaica, the part of the city of New York close to JFK? Because if it is than the location couldn't be worse. I have passed jamaica several times when going to the airport and it is certainly not a safe place to hang around.

I am not 100% sure. The neighborhood "Jamaica" in Queens, New York City itself is definitely not a nice place to hang out. However, since the postal address puts "Jamaica" as the city name instead of NYC, it is possible that there is also a city called Jamaica somwhere in NY state. I would double-check that in any case before accepting an offer. good luck!
