In this MBA DecisionWire Spotlight, which highlights MBA candidates’ choices as shared in Clear Admit’s DecisionWire, we highlight an MBA candidate looking for a potential career in the manufacturing/automotive/aerospace industries, with a lot of choices on their mind.
Despite already earning enrollment in Indiana/Kelley, the OP has some primary concerns—namely, their desire to work in the northeastern United States.

In addition, they have also applied to Illinois/Gies.

Best of luck with your applications!
