Kellogg Full Time vs. Kellogg Part Time [#permalink] New post 28 Mar 2011, 19:45
Hi guys,

I would appreciate some advice. If I liked marketing and wanted to go into that career initially (brand management, marketing consulting, internal strategy for retail/CPG, etc) what would be the pros and cons of doing Kellogg Full Time vs. Part Time?

Here is what I have so far:

Pros for Full Time:
- Less time pressure/stress (no full time job + MBA classes)
- Full MBA experience (greater networking, recruiting, student life)

Pros for Part Time:
- Keep earning money (less opportunity cost, less stress, less debt)
- Extra 2-3 years work experience upon graduation

Does anybody know if there is a distinction between the Kellogg Full Time and Part Time degree during recruiting (assuming PT was given access, which I think does happen)? What about 2-3 years (and further) into the future?

Thanks!

lhomme, I would strongly suggest applying for the full-time program if you want to switch careers. Extra work experience won't matter if it's not relevant to the industry you're targeting.

You left out the most important aspect of the full-time program. The internship! That really is a great way to switch careers or even determine if brand management is what you're passionate about. Most people I know who have done MBAs from top schools part-time (Booth, Kellogg, etc.) wish they had gone full time since part-time is so difficult from a work-life balance standpoint and your experience is not as rich as a full time experience. Oh and as far as recruiting goes, typically part-time students aren't recruited alongside the full-time students because technically the part-time students have jobs already!

I spent some time talking with people in the part-time program and I've come to the same conclusion - I would benefit from the internship and full time extracurriculars. Thanks guys!
