Columbia SIPA vs. Harvard Graduate School of Education


Recommended Posts


I was accepted to Columbia SIPA (no funding), Harvard Graduate School of Education (waiting on package) and USC Sol Price (waiting on package). 

Ultimately, I am interested in studying urban policy and management. However, I would not mind working in consulting/private sector post-grad.

I would love to attend SIPA but the cost is just outrageous...however,  if the alumni network and job prospects are worth it, I'll consider it.

Right now, my top choice is Harvard grad considering the lower cost. I am just worried that the job prospects would not be as great as SIPA's.  

I am currently try 24 and most of my experience is in the entertainment industry.  I would love to get a policy degree, and then down the line apply my background to TV/film industry somehow.  

HGSE has Anne Sweeney (former Disney president) as an alum, and her journey is inspiring. 

Either way, any insight you all can provide would be great.
