Howdy -

I just had a quick question for a part-time Kellogg student. I noticed at http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/aca ... pating.htm that a number of exchange programs are labelled "Closed for 2012 – 2013"

Can anyone tell me what this means? Does it appear that they are cutting back on international options?

(I want to take my career in an international direction and was unsure of whether a part-time program might be able to help).

Thanks in advance

If I am reading the link right, it means that the study abroad opportunities at those particular schoosl are either closed or are now full.

Part time students generally can't do a study abroad program for a semester because they generally all have full time jobs.

Most, if not all part time programs have short term study abroad residencies which are more practical in nature, such as visiting other companies abroad and giving presentations, but these are capstones after classes to prep for these trips. At some schools this is mandatory, and at other schools, this is optional. While an international short term trip will help build experience, I think that if you were to work abroad after school, you should go full time unless you have had extensive work experience already from abroad.

Hm. Thanks.

I wasn't sure if this held true given the changes beginning in Spring of 2012 announced here: http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/aca ... _ptmba.htm

Given the other changes to the program (decreasing the size of the full-time program, for instance), I was wondering which other sweeping changes might be taking place (eg. Were these partnerships being cancelled).
