Hello all!

My boyfriend and I are considering a move to Denver or Boulder next summer. I will have an associate's degree in Entrepreneurial Business and he will almost be done with a bachelor's in Broadcasting, both degrees from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

We are wondering whether to enroll at CU Boulder or CU Denver. I have done some research on each, and the general opinion seems to be that CU Boulder is a better school, but more expensive. I am looking for a strong business program and he is looking for a strong film/television production/broadcasting program. He wants to write and direct movies and I am looking to solidify my knowledge to open a bar/music venue. I also want to consider which degree would look better when I am applying for loans at banks to start my business.

With these considerations in mind, which school would be better for each of us?

Thanks so much for any help!

CU Boulder is the better school overall and provides the more typical residential college experience. However, CU Denver has a much better program for film and television production. I think CU Boulder has slight edge in business, but it really depends on what you want to focus on in your major/career. Some of the faculty at the CU Denver Business School are quite outstanding. I think CU Denver offers better opportunities for internships/professional development opportunities that will serve you well after graduation. The downside is that CU Denver is a commuter school, so you don't get the strong campus culture that Boulder is so well known for.

Unless it's changed, film studies and broadcasting are not only two different majors but are in two entirely different schools within the University of Colorado Boulder: Film Studies and (currently soon to be officially renamed) Journalism and Mass communication.

Rankings aren't everything, of course, still the gold standard MBA measurement... CU Boulder ranks 79th for business, CU Denver is unranked. MBA ranking reflects on the undergrad program certainly. Both programs are good ones though.

Have you ever heard of Colorado Film School? It was recently rated one of the top 25-rated film schools in the country. Pretty cool. I hadn't heard of it 'til recently.

Actually that is a top 25 in the world ranking...

CFS is a wonderful secret for people wanting to pursue the film business. I know several kids who have attended and loved the program. It is not a graduate program though, so it would not be an extension of the degree from UNO.
