Kellogg (Part Time) vs Berkeley Haas Part Time EWMBA [#permalink] New post 04 Apr 2014, 11:21
i've just recently been admitted to both and am struggling to make this decision and can you truly use your help, please! i am pursuing my MBA to broaden my foundational business skills, improve my problem-solving and analytical skills, and help me transition to a Brand Management career in the technology, CPG industries (quite flexible in this regard). Currently in advertising/marketing; I have quite an international background and am definitely interested in being in a position post-MBA to leverage the degree to take international post with whichever organization I join.

any quick tips/thoughts/recommendations would be extremely helpful to me. Thank you so, so much in advance!

What did you end up deciding. I think if you want to focus on technology industry Haas is probably better, but overall for Marketing Kellogg is a better school. Kellogg has a larger alumni but Haas seems to have better career services and integration for part time students.

i choose haas, because of program integration with other berkeley colleges/FT, school prestige/PT ranking, tech/entrepreneurial location/relevance, and school culture. i have a strong marketing background, and as much as kellogg would compliment that, i wanted to get out of my comfort zone a little bit and explore different venues.

I am in a similar situation - trying to choose between Kellogg Part-Time and Haas EWMBA.

My post-MBA goals are in Entrepreneurship (first choice) or Technology Product Management (second choice) preferably on the west coast. While all of this perhaps makes Haas to be a perfect fit for my goals. However, I am struggling to make a decision because of the significantly higher brand value of Kellogg(usually top 5program) over Haas (Top 7 to 10 program).

Any insights on how important is reputation when choosing an MBA program?

Thanks for your inputs!

if reputation/brand name is important to you, i think it's important to note ewmba is the #1 pt school for the past 2 years. that's the more relevant school ranking than the FT ranking you reference. sure, we all get the same degree. but people definitely make the distinction and look at the two options differently. fact of the matter is, it's significantly easier to get into pt than ft.

For those considering both Kellogg and Haas, are you commuting from far way or are in close proximity to one of these schools? I mean rankings aside, I would think regional proximity comes into play more when considering Part Time or even Executive MBA programs....

I was in a similar situation and choose Kellogg. I have a background in technology already, so Kellogg's strengths made it a better choice for me. If you don't have existing experience in technology and are looking at the EWMBA to give you that, I would suggest Haas as the location will provide better access to create the new connections you will need in the tech world.
