hey guys i am looking into undergrad business schools for next year and will be applying to these three schools most likely as my top choices and were recommended by my guidance counselor. I Visited all three and loved them, very different vibes. I love the coop program which attracted me to Northeastern. My question is how do the business prgrams stack up to each other. I know that the Brandeis program will be fairly new starting i believe this year. Thanks in advance

    BC has a very well regarded business school especially in the Boston vicinity. Northeastern also has a strong business and international business programs which are ranked favorably. Its tough to say and I think the decision would come down to a matter of fit. I am not too familiar with the Brandeis business program but the school itself is very good and underrated in my opinion just like Northeastern ; )

    BC and NEU, both well regarded for business. Brandeis, mainly regarded as a liberal arts, political science school.

    It will come down to your desire for coop and your fit with each program/campus, which are light years apart when speaking of NEU and BC.

    If you are looking at Business I would also throw Babson into the mix.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I looked into Babson and its too business oriented and almost gave off the vibe of a country club. BC, NEU, and Brandeis can offer me other options because I am not 100% sure if I want to do business yet.

    Two of my good business friends from home go to NYU and McGill which both have very good business schools. I just got back from Canada visitng my friend at McGill because he is taking summer classes now because he couldnt get a summer job. BOTH friends got into Northeastern and are regretting not going because my business friends at school are at state street, Goldman, Merryl and they are taking classes/playing video games because neither of them could get jobs.

    True this is only a summer job, but how different is a full time job when you graduate? My Northeastern friends already know important people at these companies who can either rehire them upon graduation or make really good recommendations.
