Kellogg or Chicago GSB [#permalink] New post 11 Sep 2008, 08:57
Hi everyone,

I had applied to evening MBA programs at Chicago GSB and Kellogg for Winter 2009. Fortunately, I have been accepted by both schools. Now I have to make a difficult decision to choose between these two ultra-elite schools. A little background on me: I work in Marketing Analytics division for a big financial services firm and my proposed majors are Marketing and Strategy. After MBA I would like to work in marketing management or perhaps management consulting. Given Kellogg's great reputation in Marketing I am leaning more towards Kellogg. At the same time, I am attracted by the flexibility and quant-heavy curriculum of GSB. I am looking forward to your inputs and suggestions on my decision-making process.

Thanks for your time! Good luck for your future aspirations!

PS: I have already seen an old thread on this topic (sorry for the repetition) and hope that you guys can provide some new perspectives

First of all congrats on getting into both. I am no expert but it seems if you are looking to get into marketing management post-mba that Northwestern would be the best fit for your style. However, if you think you have good marketing management skills (that you can demonstrate on your resume and in an interview) already you may want to diversify yourself with the Chicago GSB. But either way I don't think you can go wrong with those two schools!

Thanks and good luck.

First of all, congrats!
A biased opinion since I was in your situation not so long ago and chose to go to Kellogg. I started out with GSB being my first choice but felt Kellogg might be a better fit going through the application process. I think with your background, your obvious choice would be at K. I would suggest that you attend classes at both schools to figure out where you feel more at ease. I think one plus for Chicago would be that you will have a lot more flexibility if the economy completely goes bonkers. But then again I expect the halo currently on Chicago to come down slightly with the collapse of the IBs (financial recruiting will not be so hot in the coming years and students might turn to more traditional industries).

ps: I just started school on Wednesday and based on the two classes I have attended, I am convinced I am going to have a lot of fun there. I hope to see you in Wieboldt Hall soon :-)
