Hello,

Looking for some help in classifying universities as Ambi, Mod, Safe as I am planning to apply for MSBA for Summer/Fall'18.

My profile is as follows:
GRE 318 (Q: 164; V: 154; AWA: 4.0)
TOEFL: not taken yet

B.E. Computer Science, Thapar University
GPA: 9.68
Department Rank: 2/176

PGDM IIM Lucknow
GPA: 8.03
Rank: 30/445

Work Ex
1 year and 3 months in a telecom firm

UniSearch Profile: http://www.edulix.com/unisearch/user.php?uid=128942

Following are the courses that I am considering
1. UT Austin: MS in Business Analytics
2. UMinn Twin Cities: MS in Business Analytics
3. Northwestern University: MS in Analytics
4. UCSD: MS in Business Analytics
5. ASU: MS in Business Analytics
6. University of Maryland College Park: MS in Business Analytics
7. University of San Francisco: MS in Analytics
8. University of Connecticut: MS in Business Analytics & Project Management
9. Georgia Tech: MS in Analytics (Can drop as I don't meet their GRE Score requirements)

Would you suggest any other university that I should look for before finalizing a list basis my profile?

While I have researched about the placement statistics of this course, I am still unsure of job prospects of this course for international applicants as many universities have not mentioned anything about it. Please help me in this regard.

Thanks in advance!

4. UCSD: MS in Business Analytics - med-high mod
5. ASU: MS in Business Analytics - safe- low mod
6. University of Maryland College Park: MS in Business Analytics - high mod
7. University of San Francisco: MS in Analytics - No idea
8. University of Connecticut: MS in Business Analytics & Project Management - safe
9. Georgia Tech: MS in Analytics (Can drop as I don't meet their GRE Score requirements)- drop.I think you have a good number on ambi- high mod range.

Add a few safes or med and then choose among final list. You can consider UTD,OSU,GSU.

Go to the MIS forum and look for similar range univs.

All the best my friend Very Happy

Thank you @[MSmaverick] for your suggestions.

I agree I have added a lot of Ambi and Mod in my list. I will go through this again.

I will research about these schools and update my university list accordingly before I get it checked here again.

Thanks in advance.

Don't just check through these forums. Before you give us an updated list, please visit each program's website, and see which courses each program offers. If a program has enough courses in an area you want to learn about/specialize in, then consider applying to it. If you don't like the program structure or courses at a given school, no point applying there if you're not completely on-board with attending it. Once you have a decently-sized list, around 15 or so programs overall, post that list here then for us to eval.
