I’m a senior and I’m currently deciding between the Kelley School of Business at IUB (direct admit), undecided at American University, and the Newhouse-Whitman dual enrollment at Syracuse. All 3 schools cost me the same- about 45k a year. I’m having a tough time choosing which one to go to and I think this is because I would study something different at each school. Business at Indiana, Journalism+ Business at Syracuse, and IR, Journalism, or Business at American.
I don’t know which career path is right for me: business, journalism, or foreign affairs but obviously business is a more secure and lucrative path. I’m learning towards American or Syracuse but I’m concerned if it’s worth the money, if I’ll be able to get a good job after graduating, and how good the ROI is. I would appreciate any helpful/constructive input!
Not much to base an opinion on, but i suggest Indiana-Kelley since you are a direct admit to a great business school.
Because you are undecided, I’d recommend either American or Syracuse. It is not that easy to double major outside of Kelley and IU isn’t that strong in other areas. American or Syracuse will serve you better as an undecided. Business will not be closed off to you even if you don’t major in business.
The thing that I remember from our tour at AU (besides the downpour) was the tour guide saying that it is impossible to get away from politics regardless of your major. That could be a plus or minus.
Thanks for the suggestion. What was missing for you to base an opinion on?
