Best Callifornia College's for Business

Which of these are best for the business world?

UC San Diego Management Science Economics program
Cal Poly SLO Business Admin or Business Econ programs
UC Irvine Merage School of Business

I would love to hear some experiences from people who either went to or are familiar with these schools to give me some insight. I know SLO is ranked higher than the others but the UC's have a awesome name brand that looks great on the resume. I've been on the websites but of course they all beat their own chests on the school websites. I would like unbiased opinions on school experiences, education quality, campus life, surrounding city life, job propects, alumni support, the whole 9 yards.

Also please dont bring up Berkley or UCLA, I already know they are the best. If I can get into either of these I would definitely go hahaha.

    UCI's business program is relatively new, so there is not too many reviews out there. UCSD's economics is highly regarded but impacted. I don't know much about SLO since I won't apply to any csus. UCR also has a business program- you can consider it as a back up school.
    Also consider privates like Claremont Mckenna, USC, and Pepperdine. The first two are very competitive, but the standards to get in Pepperdine is relatively lower. Sometimes privates will give to better financial aid packages since the UCs are running out of money. :(
