Tk2356 Posted July 11, 2017 Share Posted July 11, 2017 (edited) I'm switching careers from the military to nonprofit management, and am hoping for advice from this community regarding school value with this end goal in mind. Due to my spouse's job options, I'm only applying to programs in NYC and Chicago, and would like to apply early action to begin planning the overseas move and allow more time for my spouse to job hunt. After the GI Bill/Yellow Ribbon funds, Chicago Harris and NYU Wagner would be free while SIPA would cost approximately 30-35k out of pocket. Is SIPA's reputation worth the extra money when their job placement in nonprofits seems on par with Wagner? Harris seems to be more highly regarded than Wagner, but does Wagner's nonprofit emphasis negate that here? I'll be drilling with the Reserves over the summer, so my only chance to gain experience in the sector will be during the school year. It sounds as though this would be easiest at Wagner. I'll be 31 when beginning the program, if that makes a difference, and would prefer to work in an internationally-focused NGO. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
