Hello! I posted in the Los Angeles forum as well! I planning to move to California after I graduate to pursue my M.B.A. My two choices are Stanford and UCLA. I'm not sure which one to choose. My goal is to work for Disney. I am majoring in Buiness Administration with a Minor in Psychology. My concentration is in Human Resource Management. Also I'm not sure whether I want to make my home in San Fransisco or Los Angeles. If anyone would give me some pointers on Stanford's MBA program or tips on moving to San Fransisco that would be great! Should I work before I attend grad school(Which I don't want to do)

Well, they are both great programs. Stanford is the gold standard, but will probably be more expensive then UCLA. You shouldn't have any problem getting hired at Disney either way, but if you are at UCLA you might be able to do work there while you are going to school. Disney has no significant operations in the San Francisco Bay Area that I am aware of.

UCLA's Anderson School is a relative bargain for CA residents. For nonresidents, UCLA is about $40,000 compared to Stanford's $50,000, respectively. Annually.

Foreign students will benefit from the relatively weak dollar, for the most part.

MBA is arguably a union card that's more about perceived prestige and alumni network than actual educational value...

Stanford and Harvard have the world's most powerful MBA alumni networks....silly to choose a less prestigious, less powerful university to save a few bucks....fails logic of Finance 101 in analyzing one's likely career earnings...

Default "San Francisco"

Learn how to spell San Francisco before you apply to either. Both schools are extremely competitive. I wonder why you aren't also considering USC?

Yeah I know both are very competitive schools which makes me want to apply even more. Both schools are awesome! They both offer different things that I am interested in. My goal is to get a job with Disney in Human Resource Management. I might end up at UCLA because Disney offers tuition reimbursement. So I could work and go to school. I don't know if Disney has any locations San Francisco.
