MBA Snapshot: The Wharton School [#permalink]

New post 24 Dec 2017, 14:01
FROM Amerasia MBA Blog: MBA Snapshot: The Wharton School
The Wharton School is considered by many to be the best business school in the world.  Unlike many of its competitors in the top then, however, Wharton is one of the few business schools which has both an undergraduate and a graduate business program, essentially doubling its resources.  Here are three other reasons why Wharton is so well respected…1)      Global AnalyticsThe Wharton School integrates global learning into its core curriculum and extracurricular activities like no other school.  Through key courses such as The Global Learning Practicum, Global Immersion Program, and Global Modular courses, Wharton students leave with not only a global perspective on business from an academic view, but also practical global experience under their belts.  Couple it with Wharton’s strong network of finance professionals in their alumni ranks, and you’re left with a school which is basically considered the standard against which all other finance programs are measured.  Wharton has always had a corner on the finance industry, but their timing over the past decade, which has been in lock-step sync with the expanding global marketplace and growth in quantitative analytics, has permanently positioned the school as the ideal place to study global business within a deeply analytical framework.  Got a low score on the quant portion of the GMAT?  You might consider applying elsewhere.
2)      Dual DegreesWharton’s dedication to a global perspective is also evident in their dual degree options, including an MBA/MA in International Studies (through the Lauder program).  Dual degrees allow a deeper dive into a specific area of expertise, and the Wharton School essentially pioneered the idea of connecting the MBA with a myriad of alternate studies.  With access to the whole of Penn as well as other institutions, including world-renowned Johns Hopkins University as well as the Kennedy School at Harvard, Wharton students can customize the exact education they desire.  There is even an MBA/Veterinary medicine degree option. Of course a separate admissions decision must be made for any school outside of Wharton, but you can thank their open approach to dual degree options as the reason Wharton will consider a GRE score as an alternative to the GMAT. 
3)      Social ImpactThere’s no better proof of dedication to bettering the common good than an in-house student loan forgiveness program for Wharton alumni who work in a non-profit field.  Perhaps grounded in founder Joseph Wharton’s vision to create graduates who manifest “economic and social good,” Wharton’s efforts to provide opportunities for students to impact the community, both during school and after, are evident across the program.  In addition to coursework which emphasizes bettering lives, not just bettering the bottom line, at Wharton, you can even major in Social Impact Management, so applicants with social impact goals make the pool quite competitive.  Sure, all schools advertise that their students and alumni care about and make a meaningful impact on the world, but Wharton truly puts their money where their mouth is. Let us help you position yourself to be as attractive as you can be for the Wharton School.

MBA Snapshot: Columbia Business School [#permalink]

New post 29 Dec 2017, 10:01
FROM Amerasia MBA Blog: MBA Snapshot: Columbia Business School
Columbia Business School is located in the energetic business capital of the universe, but that’s not the only reason why this ivy league business school remains consistently in the top ten.  Here’s a snapshot of the three things Columbia is most known for…1)      Finance-driven megaforceWith the exception of NYU, which is just a hop away, Columbia sends more grads into high finance careers than any other top tier business school.  That kind of track record has created a powerhouse alumni network which only further grows their ranks in this high paying industry.  There was a time when Columbia siphoned off a huge percentage of investment banking jobs each year, but partly because that field has diminished in popularity and partly because Columbia has been making efforts to diversify their graduating MBA job offers, i-banking now makes up less than half of the jobs chosen by finance majors finishing at Columbia.
2)      Manhattan LocationSeems obvious, but their geographic location is so important to the school’s ethos, both taglines over the past two decades have promoted it. Having “the New York Advantage,” and being “At the very center of business” has really paid off for Columbia, where they receive over 6000 applications annually for only 1000 slots.  With only three ivy league schools having an MBA program, being the only ivy league school offering an MBA in Manhattan essentially makes Columbia a unicorn.  Fewer than 18% of those who apply are offered a seat.  Even though Columbia is above the upper West side in Morningside Heights, they still manage to bring in over 450 guest speakers each year, so despite being a 30 minute subway ride north of Wall Street, their location remains their most treasured characteristic.
3)      Experiential LearningColumbia leads the way in utilizing both Theory and Practice in their MBA curriculum.  With a goal to create holistic business minds who see the bigger picture when analyzing complex business issues, Columbia goes to great lengths to train up their MBA candidates to connect the dots in the classroom.  Leveraging their location, Columbia can place students in the real world without disrupting the traditional classroom approach.  Columbia students are then expected to frame their analyses with an eye on the complex nature of globalization and social consequences, always mindful of how decisions affect both their local and broader communities.

MBA Snapshot: Kellogg School of Management [#permalink]

New post 13 Jan 2018, 22:01
FROM Amerasia MBA Blog: MBA Snapshot: Kellogg School of Management
Kellogg, in addition to being the world's most famous cereal brand is also the namesake school of John L. Kellogg, the founder of the company.  The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern remains solidly in the top ten business schools for a variety of reasons, but there are three key areas that keep the applications pouring in year after year…1)      Marketing prowessKellogg’s reputation for marketing expertise is so strong, it’s essentially considered to be the best in practically every single MBA survey.  Since the rich get richer, the school attracts only the best of the best faculty in marketing research and thought.  It’s no surprise that students who focus on marketing at Kellogg also land the most competitive jobs in that industry, but despite it’s prowess in marketing, Kellogg, like most business schools, launches even more careers in consulting (with marketing coming in second).  General management is also a popular track, so don’t think about Kellogg as a “marketing only” choice.  Think of its top ranking in management simply as one of the key attributes which has permanently cemented the school as one of the best respected business schools in the country.
2)      TeamworkOf course every business school touts its team environment, and indeed, working in teams is a critical part of any good program out there today.  But Kellogg basically invented it.  That’s right, every since 1908, Kellogg has been integrating collaboration into the curriculum, shifting projects and assignments into group settings vs. individual performance.  Over the years, most, if not all, business schools have emulated their innovative approach to business school students playing in the same sandbox.  Still today, students at Kellogg are evaluated mostly on what they deliver as a team, and in fact are essentially only given grades on an individual basis when it comes to class participation.  If you are more of an extrovert than an introvert, and thrive in an environment where you rely on others to help you learn, Kellogg would be an ideal choice.
3)      Fun-loving cultureKellogg is considered the fraternity/sorority of the business school world. Famous for their work hard, play hard culture, students enjoy an endless barrage of social activities outside the classroom, including weekly beerfests (called TG), ski trips, and parties galore.  They even have organized trips to other countries before classes begin, including not only students, but their partners as well.  If having fun is on your agenda for business school, you definitely should take a close look at Northwestern.
