I am currently a senior in high school from Michigan. 29 ACT 4.0 gpa Presently interested in a Management and/or Marketing degree. Right now have been accepted into Grand Valley, Northern, Michigan Tech, and Northwood. Have also applied to IUB and UM-Ann Arbor but wont hear from them until later. Anyways, all of these schools are AACSB accredited except for Northwood. Northwood has been climbing up my list recently in where I would like to go because of its business specific curriculum. However recently I discovered that it is not AACSB accredited. Not in the best situation financially, especially in terms of getting financial aid, so IUB and UM are probably ruled out due to cost. No scholarships from UM and IUB is out of state. First, is it worth the cost to go to a school like UM or IUB. I have had the philosophy for some time now that it doesnt really matter where you go to school as long as you work hard and network well. I know people who make 100k + and love there jobs with only 2 years at a local community college. Second, is AACSB that important into getting a job. I have heard great things about Northwood's networking oppurtunities and because it is non traditional I can get a double major in the time I could get a single at any other university I listed. Especially when comparing Northwood to Northern which isnt even that great of a school Im not sure if it matters. Feedback would be appreciated, and a 'thank you' to anyone who could give me some help on the subject.
