Best MBA for Marketing [#permalink] New post 25 Jan 2012, 20:53
Hello
I'm preparing to apply to an MBA school. I've searched information about the top 15 mba programs (I'ts hard for me to go to the school and look for information there since I live in south america), and I can't clearly state which are the best for Marketing.
All my professional experience is in retail, I started in a department store as a demand planner and two years after I was hired as a product manager (buyer) in a new department store in which I've worked for the last three years (the company is 3.5 years old). I really like my career and I really want to continue in this path so it's important for me to end up in the right mba (not necessary one that is in the top 10 but one that best suits my needs)
I hope you can help me with this, I plan to apply in september 2012. I already took the GMAT and got 700 so I'm now obsessed on preparing the best application I can and I'll will really like to focus on a couple of schools.
Thanks in advance.

Arguably Kellog at Northwestern is the best.

What would people on another side of that argument say?

I have heard great things about Kelley's marketing program as well. I only know schools in the Midwest, but if Kellogg is #1 here, Kelley is #2.

What, exactly, would you like to do?

If you're going back to your company post-MBA, you're right, "rankings" really don't matter.

Try to find professors that are focused on the same type of marketing/field you're interested in. A school may be "#1 in Marketing" but I think there's a heavy focus on CPG. It looks like you're more interested in the retail side of things.

Thank you all for your time and advice, I would like to go back to the same company but I don't think they'll hold the position for me so I'll have to wait and see...
You are right faro I'm more interested in the retail side and I'm sure that with the right MBA I'll have a lot of chances of getting a good job when I come back.
Thanks again, I'll research the teachers and take a double look at Kellog as faro and sometimes kindly suggested.

Besides those two schools does any other name come across your minds?
