Ross vs Kellogg PT [#permalink] New post 06 Jul 2013, 12:41
Other than the Businessweek rankings, does it make a huge difference if you have an option to attend PT program at Ross or Kellogg. And if so which one would you choose.

I am particularly interested in Entrepreneurship, General Management, Leadership and Strategy. Is there a huge difference post MBA from these schools with employers like Bains, McKinsey, BCG and Deloitte. The employment statistics show salaries that are pretty similar for each schools.

Keep in mind that consulting firms like McKinsey, Bain and BCG focus most of their efforts on recruiting full-time MBA students.

I agree. But post PT MBA, is the difference between these top schools large enough in Entrepreneurship, GM and Strategy that future employers decide to go with one and NOT go with the other.

Hey there, keep in mind after you graduate, your resume will merely state you have an MBA from a particular program. It won't say if it's part time or online or full time. Therefore, you may lose out on the full time recruiting components that Alex mentioned (along with the internship, extracurriculars, etc.), but for part time you really want to go for brand. In this case, I'd say go for Kellogg if you have the option.

Hope that helps!

I am in the same boat choosing between Kellogg or Ross. Both seem like very good schools. Kellogg would be a weekly flight to chicago and Ross would be 2 hour driver every other week and the benefit of working in a cohort. I am looking to get into corporate strategy and product strategy. Any thoughts?

Hey there,

So it seems Kellogg will be a bit more pricey but if you're ok with that - go with Kellogg. Corporate Strategy = brand and Product Strategy = Kellogg. The cohort component is less important for PT / WMBAs and you can still foster a sense of community in other programs. If there are personal reasons that make Ross more attractive, then those are important, but on the surface - Kellogg wins!

Bhavik - Thank you for your response. My firm will be paying for the tuition, so price wise both are equal. Although I do need to pay for travel and with Chicago been a 1 hour flight each week, it would cost a lot more than 2 hour drive to Ann Arbor. In terms of PT programs, do they compare? I know the strengths of each for the FT programs and Ross would be a great FT option for me in career terms, but am a little unsure about whether PT would be similar. Based on my research Kellogg PT is one of the best besides Booth.

Hey there,

You're very welcome! So when it comes to PT programs, a lot of the thing that make the FT programs applies. Same professors, resources, etc. Are they the same as their FT brethren? No. But they're close. When you graduate, you walk out with a Kellogg / Ross MBA. Not a Kellogg / Ross PT MBA. So the answer to your question is - which do you want on your resume? The answer is Kellogg. They're in different tiers. Ross is a fantastic program and offers a lot of really important factors to its FT students (primarily culture) that other schools can't. But Kellogg on your resume will open more doors than Ross. People KNOW Kellogg!

So if you're ok with the flight costs and the investment in time, purple is the way to go!
