Hi there,

It is nice to see a thread for 2011 applicants.....recollecting those hectic days to meet the application deadlines. Well, I am current student of Fuqua - WEMBA class of 2011. My story is bit different from that of most other full time students in the sense, I applied for Full time but fortunately was offered admission to WEMBA program.(I am offered admission to WEMBA based on the application that I submitted for full time). And I am proud to say that I am Fuqua student now.

Just to inform you an option that there is a question in the online application that asks us whether our application can be considered for other MBA programs - WEMBA, CCMBA or Global). So if for some reason you feel full time program is a far shot, and Fuqua is a top priority school, flag this question in the application package. You can increase the odds of becoming a Fuqua student. (Of course only if you alternative choice is one of WEMBA / CCMBA / Global MBA @ Fuqua). :)

Finally, If anyone wants to know any specific details about WEMBA program, feel free to PM me.

Put me down for R1. EA's a little too rich for my blood right now, but with the HSM, Duke is one of my top picks.

Duke is really balanced, but a lot of people probably know it as a marketing school. In reality, they place a high number into marketing, a high number into consulting, and a relatively high number into finance. I think in the last numbers were about 30% into marketing, 30% into consulting, a bunch into finance and then all the other stuff.

Wowzer!! Look at the difference between the full time and the summer hires. I always assumed that companies hire less for summer than they do for full time. But in this case it seems reversed. Or is this a sign that the employment situation is better for the Class of 2011?

Also in the report it mentions students with/without permanent US work authorizations. Is this just a fancy of saying US citizens/PR and international students?

We just had our Career Management Center session today. The internship % is actually a bit higher now (students procrastinating on reporting), we were told that internship % is over 90%.

Duke's Cross Continent MBA Program [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2010, 21:54
Hello. I'm wondering if anyone is currently in the Cross Continent MBA Program at Duke who can share your experiences in the program. I'm interested in hearing the pros and cons as I plan to work internationally at some point and this program looks pretty intriguing. Also, is this an EMBA program? It's not listed as such but I've seen it referred as EMBA.

Thanks!

I'm not in the CCMBA program. But I've spoken with some CCMBA, so hopefully, I can give some insights and if there are CCMBAs out there, feel free to add and/or correct me.

The difference from an applicant perspective between CCMBA and the Executive MBA programs (Global and Weekend) are:
1) CCMBA has less work experience
2) CCMBA has classes all over the world

If you are internationally minded, CCMBA will give you a global perspective. You travel to many countries and learn about the business practices in the countries you are visiting.

So the downside is that you'll have to set up a block of time to travel, which can be difficult if you are balancing work and study (similar to the WEMBA, since they have to be Durham for classes).

If you scheduled an open interview, you will not be invited again for the invitation only interviews. You'll just find out the admit/ding results during your application round's decision date.

Has anyone heard or read anything official about the open interview dress code yet. Earlier on, people here were discussing that it was pretty mixed between business formal and casual last year, I am just wondering if someone found out details for this year. I haven't seen anything and am thus assuming business formal

The official suggestion is business casual. The students here wear t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops to class, so you'll be fine in business casual. If you don't feel comfortable, you can do business formal and lose the jacket later.

Roll Call Updated
I know there's a lot of interest in consulting out there. Looking for a preliminary internal employment report, it looks like 36 Fuqua students did a consulting internship, 21 of which were at M/B/B.

I'm not sure how true the following is, but speaking with a SY, all of the interns got extended full time offer at the end of the internship.

Also, Fuqua just kicked off a new Center for Consulting Excellence, designed to make Duke more attractive to top consulting firms. The executive director is a HBS grad with 15 years experience at BCG.

I have another question, I just started filling in some online application material and then I am running into this:

Quote:
Health Sector Management Certificate
A certificate within The Duke MBA, the Health Sector Management program links the core business fundamentals offered in the traditional Fuqua MBA program to the salient, business critical issues unique to the healthcare industry. The overlay of a comprehensive curriculum and robust extracurricular offerings provided by HSM onto the core MBA experience creates a rich, holistic and lasting experience. The HSM program better positions Fuqua students for career placement short-term and offers a competitive advantage throughout their careers. Our students bring a diversity of backgrounds, both inside and outside the health sector, and graduate to pursue careers in fields such as service delivery, consulting, finance, pharmaceuticals, medical device and biotechnology. To learn more visit our Web site.
Are you interested in pursuing the Health Sector Management Certificate?
Yes No

I select YES

Course Concentration
Are you interested in any of our course concentrations?
If yes, you may declare up to two:


Your second choice will only populate if your concentration allows two programs to be selected.
For more information regarding specific concentrations, please refer to http://www.fuqua.duke.edu/student_resou ... ntrations/.



Now my question is, should I still select two concentrations or not if I am shooting for the HSM certificate? What is typical here? Do you select 2 concentrations and the certificate, or certificate with 0 or 1 concentration. Any ideas/recommendations? I am certainly interested in some of the concentrations, but I do not know if it feasible/expected/doable etc.

Duke does not require you to do any concentrations (nor is it expected). Chances are you will probably end up with another concentration simply because of overlap, but you don't have to add one. With regards to HSM, you could feasibly end up with HSM + 2 concentrations, but probably more likely is that you'll have HSM +1 concentration (or none if you pick your classes very randomly).
