There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I've had the good luck of getting into both of these great programs. I'm a European national (I grew up in France), with an undergrad from Northwestern and 4 years of US-work experience. My goal is to go into management consulting. Although I had my heart set on INSEAD to return to France in the SHORT-term, I'm starting to think I want to live and work in the US in the LONG-run. So now I am seriously torn between the two. Here is how I see it:
INSEAD: This school will 'internationalize' my profile and open doors for me in Europe. With an American undergrad and a top European MBA, as an American/Euro national, I will have more flexibility to work in either of these continents. But if I decide to return to the US after my year at INSEAD, I will not have as strong a network there as if I went to Kellogg.
Kellogg: My profile after Kellogg will definitely be very North American (limiting opportunities to return to Europe), with undergrad and graduate degrees at NU. However I will be guaranteed a stronger network (is this important in Management Consulting?) and job in the US, which is where I want to live long term, I think.
I'm trying to collect as many perspectives on my situation as possible and would appreciate any insight anyone can give me to tip the balance one way, or the other! Thanks!
Well both schools are powerhouses for management consulting so you can't really make a bad choice from that standpoint. If you're planning to work in the US long term, the Kellogg name is much stronger here in the states than INSEAD. With that said, if your heart says INSEAD, go with that. You still will have your undergrad network at Northwestern that you could leverage in the future if you want to return to the US. _________________
