“Where to go since both McCombs at UTAustin and Jones School at Rice accepted me?” At the end of a great birthday, another recent GMAT prep alum called for my counsel about his question above. The dilemma: A 750 GMAT score helped this mid-career engineer receive offer letters from the professional MBA programs at both Jones and McCombs in Houston. $109,000 for Rice, or $110,000 for a Texas MBA. You may be wondering why he chose not to do an executive MBA since he meets the requirements. Answer: he wants to surround himself with young people and cutting edge thinking while he reinvents himself but keeps his job. Where do you think he chose? Call Mark Alan Robinson MBA at (713) 364-9213 to hear the rest of this student’s story. Or, meet several MBAcademy alumni Thursday night at the Jones School kickoff reception. Rice! Go Owls!
