I'm currently a student at Ivy Tech, but eventually will have to transfer to a university in-order to get my Bachelor's in Business Adminstration.

I'm a little bit confused on which school would be better ISU or IUPUI.

I have visited ISU a couple of weeks ago, it was quite nice and I really liked the campus. However, I haven't visited IUPUI yet.

I know that IUPUI has a better business progarm, because of the Kelly degree from IU, "but" after I graduate from either university, the diploma will be 100% the same, because I will find an job overseas, not in the US.
Over all, I'm somehow leaning towards ISU more than IUPUI, because it is located in a smaller city(Terre Haute) than IUPUI(Indianapolis). I think of myself a small town boy, since I mostly lived all of my life in Bloomington. So yeah all in all that's why I liked ISU more, but IUPUI is still a big second choice rolling around my mind, because I think even though the diploma from either universities will be the same, I'll gain more business knowledge from IUPUI ( Kelly School of Business ).

Please share your comments.

Thanks in Advance.

I would choose IUPUI .The size of the city should not matter only the quality of the education .Now if ISU is better or offers more to what you to do go there.

Without a doubt, IUPUI.

My first instinct would be IUPUI if you can handle the cost of living without your grades suffering. There are likely more internship opportunities in the city than in Terre Haute. If you do end up at ISU, it's a beautiful campus and has a fantastic staff.

Even if you stay in the USA, the degrees are going to be virtually indistinguishable. If you prefer Terre Haute, go to Terre Haute. ISU is a good school.

You might want to check with both schools and see what credits will transfer. I know Ivy Tech says credits will transfer, but sometimes they don't. I would probably base my decision on what credits will transfer. One thing good about ISU vs. IUPUI is that you ca live on campus at ISU. IUPUI is not in a great neighborhood, and I think you'd have trouble finding decent housing, or if you found decent housing, you'd have quite a commute.

Oh don't worry about the credits, because starting from this spring semester, I will have to make up my mind on which university will I transfer to, before I register to any class.

Thanks anyways

That's untrue. Kelly Business School is recognized as one of the country's best.
