llm v mba

Postby 1L2b » Tue Apr 27, 2010 4:55 pm

for international business...
what are some good graduate programs (preferrably in the northeast)? ivy and otherwise.
i've heard jd/mba is the way to go for this field, but what kind of careers are international llm degrees specifically geared towards? i'm still new to all of this....
thanks! :)

The LLM is completely useless if you are planning to work in America, unless it's the Tax LLM (which you get after you get your JD).

really? i keep hearing this. i actually switched careers pretty recently, took the lsat and applied to law school, something i've been thinking about for a long time and finally decided to do...but i'm still by and large learning about the different career options even though i vaguely know what i want to eventually do. any info. would be much appreciated! so how about mba for international business? what are great programs out there? well obviously ivy leagues, but what others?

Yes. I know some international students who were pursuing an LLM here to work in America but ended up switching into the JD program because they could not find jobs. You cannot get a job with an LLM in America.

I don't know if you are a flame or not, but the Ivy Leagues have nothing to do with the top business schools. A lot of people say that the "top tier" of business schools are ones that somehow correlated with the top 6 in USNews this year. These are Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Northwestern (Kellogg), University of Chicago (Booth), and the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton) *maybe not in this order though, this is just the USNews order. These 6 would what business people consider to be the "top tier" business schools. Similarly, lawyers consider the top 14 law schools to be the "top tier" law schools.
