Kellogg or Stern or Haas [#permalink] New post 03 Dec 2009, 10:42
I have an admission offer from Stern PT and Kellogg PT. I also have an interview invite from Haas PT.

My education and professional experience has been in technology industry (software to be precise). I am looking to major in General Mgmt and Technology.

Any ideas what would be a better school for me?

I am looking at the same PT programs (as well as Chicago and UCLA).

My impressions:The strengths of the full-time program will be the strengths of the part-time program as well. If you are interested in building a strong network with the students, then the location where you intend to live after MBA is important as most of the part-time students will stay local. If you are interested in the brand, then look at the rankings.

How are you handling the job situation? Relocating or flying in on the weekends?

I will be relocating. I do not have a preference for location after MBA. So which would be a better school?

In my opinion, Kellogg or Stern would definately be Kellogg.

Kellogg and Haas would be a more interesting choice. The higher rankings and slightly better management and marketing programs versus the location of Haas to Silicon Valley. If you plan on living anywhere else besides California after school, I would go with Kellogg.

Thanks for your response.

How about if you put technology industry into perspective? Is Haas considered way better as far as Technology Industry is concerned?

I would strongly consider Haas if you want to work in California after you graduate. There is the ease of accessing the companies in Silicon Valley and the large number of alumnis. They also have a lot of engineers in the PT program with similar goals as you if that is important to you.

Otherwise, I would go with Kellogg.

I do not have a preference for location after my MBA. So do you still think Haas is better than Kellogg?

One thing about the Kellogg P/T program is that they require you to be fully employed to apply to it (I asked the Adcom). In my case (living and working in NYC), I can't apply to Kellogg PT because I would have to quit my job and move to Evanston and find a new job THEN apply (which is not a sure thing anyway).

Chicago PT does not have this limitation nor does Haas. I don't think Stern has that limitation as well.

JZD, I think you have rather strict interpretation of the Kellogg rules. Just because you may have to be fully employed to apply does not mean you need to be fully employed after application. Also, I can't imagine any school not allowing someone to quit their job and look for something else during their MBA studies. In other words, quitting your job at NYC and moving to Chicago and looking for an another job should be perfectly acceptable.

Finally, worst case scenario, no school in the world would dismiss you as a student if you can't find a job.
