LBS v/s Kellogg [#permalink] New post 30 Mar 2014, 22:48
Hi Guys,

Need some help deciding between the full fledged program (18 months program) at LBS and Kellogg MBA 1 Year. Just a quick background about me. I am an Indian male 31 years old. I am a Chartered Accountant by qualification and have done my education from Mumbai. I have been working with a mid market private equity fund for the last seven years.

My focus is to work for a larger private equity fund. Since i have never worked internationally i am unable to decide on which would be better suited for me.

My thoughts on Kellogg are:
a) A one year course hence cheaper
b) Working in the US
c) One of the top four schools in the US

a) Visa issues
b) Not a lot of diversity
c) Some employers might prefer 2Y candidates to 1Y candidates
d) No internship

Pros: a) London location
b) Brand
c) Internship opportunities
d) Diversity

a) Probably one of the more expensive programs cause of location
b) Tough to get scholarship
c) Visa issues for working in London/UK

I have tried to prioritize them in order of importance. thx

Congratulations on getting admits from LBS and Kellogg. Both schools are finance powerhouses and send good percentage of students in private equity. Candidates attending 1yr program at Kellogg get equal opportunities as 2yr program candidates,but not having any internship creates few problems. The biggest drawback for LBS is the visa issues for working in London. Employers preferring 2Y candidates over 1Y is not very common. Do you have any preference on your job location post-mba? If not, then unless Kellogg gives you some scholarship, i would suggest you to go with LBS.

Good Luck!
