Congrats on the admits, Nikhil.
Both schools are strong in the area of Supply Chain management (SCM). In fact, Tepper is higher than Ross in the niche specialty rankings. And you also have the additional benefit of gaining the Carnegie Mellon brand (well-respected in India if you were to come back) added to your resume.
But overall, when you consider the general MBA rankings, Ross is a higher ranked and stronger brand .
So the fight would be between specialisation and ranking. If you had received a scholarship from CMU, then the confusion would increase.
For now, I'd go with Ross as you'll also get access to several top notch consulting firms.
Let me know which one you finally choose.
