A little bit info about me: I am 22 years old from Indonesia. I graduated from USC majoring in Business Administration last May. Currently, I am working as a project manager in a real estate company in San Francisco. My professional goal is to come back to Indonesia to start a company.
So, here is the thing: I got admitted into Columbia University's MSc. in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. I also got admitted into NYU's MSc. in Real Estate Development. Both programs are for Spring 2013.
I am very confused and do not know what to do. For me, Columbia has more respected reputation than NYU. It ranks higher too. However, what interests me from NYU is the program. I am really passionate about real estate.
I also like the program from Columbia. However, if I want to be a businessman or entrepreneur, will all the negotiation, mediation, and conflict resolution classes be very useful? FYI, I am able to take 2 electives from Columbia Business School, which is very great for me.
Can you guys share your opinions? Which one should I attend? What factors should I consider? Has anyone take MSc in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution? If yes, can you share your experience?
Thank you very much, guys. I really appreciate it.
