Need Advice on Business School

<p>Hello - this is my first post on college confidential for several years (actually since undergrad admissions). I've since graduated from the University of Michigan with a bachelors in Aerospace Engineering (GPA 3.491) and was hired into a leadership development program for a large corporation. I have worked for the company for about 3 years now in Texas. I'm interested in moving back to Michigan for a job with a different company. I was also planning on getting an MBA soon and I was debating whether or not to get a part-time MBA from Michigan while working. </p>

<p>Here are some concerns I have:</p>

<ol>
<li>Will it be frowned upon that I am getting an MBA from the same school I got my engineering degree from?</li>
<li> Although Michigan is a highly ranked school for graduate business studies, will a part-time MBA actually be worth it or should I go full-time?</li>
<li> I've noticed that Michigan's business school has slipped in US News & World Report's rankings - Is it still considered an elite business school or should I aim higher?</li>
</ol>

<p>Please let me know what you think or if you have any comments. Thanks!</p>

<p>1- No
2- Full time. Get it done as fast as you can because of opportunity cost.
3- USNWR don't hold much worth. UM is an elite school, especially Ross. </p>

<p>3.5 gpa in aerospace is fantastic.</p>

<p>In my opinion, the only time that doing a part-time MBA makes sense if if you find a job with a company that will pay for the cost of the MBA program. Otherwise, I agree with dollarbill, best to get it done quickly full-time. Especially with being in two such diverse fields as aerospace engineering and business I don't think it matters at all that you would earn both degrees from UM.</p>
