Returning to Undergraduate Alma Mater for MBA [#permalink] New post 21 Mar 2012, 10:31
Hoping someone can provide some advice.

I've been admitted to a few schools, one of them being Kellogg (MMM program). I attended Northwestern as an undergraduate. I was wondering if anyone knows if this would be a disadvantage in a significant way to attend the same school twice.

My undergraduate majors were in communications and economics. I am coming from the advertising/marketing services world. My interest areas are social enterprise and innovations / design consulting.

One one hand, I love the program and feel it is best for me. However, if there are any red flags, I just want to be aware of them now.

Appreciate your help!

Hey Bamboo28:
I just wanted to chime in here quickly before hitting the sack.

It is not a disadvantage because you are really not "attending the same school twice." It's a completely new slate and ballgame with respect to the program, classmates and level of engagement and thought required. No one (recruiters or your friends) would think that you are part of some incestuous pool of thought. You are good to go should you go back to Kellogg.

The only thing I have seen is with PhD candidates. Most b-schools will not allow a recent PhD graduate to come back and teach at the same program they graduated from - that's incestuous (which is bad btw.)

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
