Hey guys,

When is the video essay for R2 due? I don't see a deadline anywhere, and not one on the post-submitted application page either. People are saying 1 week from the deadline, but is that listed anywhere?

Thanks

When should I get concerned that my interviewer has not responded? It took me about 4 days after receiving the email to reach out since I was on vacation, but when should I reach out to Admissions if I don't receive a response from my interviewer? With a 2 week initial window I only have about 7 days left!

Hey - I didn't schedule my interview with Kellogg on-campus until end of February because of being very busy at work these next two months. Do you think that will hurt my admission at all? Should I try to schedule earlier?


I scheduled mine late nov , which was pretty late by R1 standards. I wouldn't worry about it at all. You're fine as long as you are within the deadline for your round.

From what I recall, looking back in the thread, that timelines were all over the place. Kellogg attempts to interview everyone and that's a lot of people. If you live in an extremely rural area and there are not any Kellogg alums nearby that are available, you may get an interview waiver.

After the interview there are no updates of any kind provided by the admissions office directly until a decision is ready. As you can see earlier in this thread, people attempted to make inferences on their decisions based on changing video essay dates. I don't really think much came out of it except that it helped passed the time while we all anxiously waited for the decisions.

They do call admitted applicants just before official decisions are available however the time between then and the last "touchpoint" in the application process can be very far apart. For me I was interviewed in early October and did not get a status update (final decision) until 4pm CST (US Central) on Dec 17th.

Be prepared to dig in and wait... :pc

MMM, 2Y students take second in Haas Tech Challenge  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: MMM, 2Y students take second in Haas Tech Challenge
Image

A team of four Kellogg students won second place in UC Berkeley’s 2014 Haas Tech Challenge in November. In addition to the award, the team members were excited to learn that one of the challenge’s industry professional judges was a MMM alum.

MMM students David Ufford and Justin Saeheng teamed with Two-Year students Adithya Mohanakrishnan and Daniel Jung for the competition. team.

The 2014 challenge case topic was the cross-section of the “Internet of Things (IoT)” and “Smart Cities;” the students explored how new technologies can be used to bring improvements to the daily lives of millions.

“This year’s topic was particularly interesting to us and has been the subject of a lot of recent buzz,” Saeheng said. He added that the team’s tech background and experience from MMM aligned well with this year’s challenge.

The Haas Tech Challenge is a case competition run by UC Berkeley Haas Technology Club. Competing teams are afforded the opportunity to solve real-world business challenges, gain hands-on experience in the technology industry, and network with industry professionals and student peers.

Eight teams were selected to compete out of more than 30 from the country’s top business schools. Selected teams were fully briefed on the case the morning of Nov. 7 and had until 12 a.m. on Nov. 8 to submit a presentation with the team’s response, as well as an executive summary of the team’s case findings.

A MMM CONNECTION

Nir Maor ’12 (L) with current MMM students David Ufford and Justin Saeheng

One of the competition’s judges, Nir Maor ’12, is a MMM alum. He currently works as the Director of Market Development for Intel’s Internet of Things Strategy and Technology Office.

Maor was very familiar with this year’s topic and why it is a great space for growth.

“The IoT landscape includes many connected ‘systems of systems’,” Maor explained, “which presents market development challenges in engaging rapidly growing, yet fragmented ecosystems of developers and equipment manufacturers.”

Maor said other market development challenges included combinations of vertical and horizontal solution architectures, and newly formed standard bodies. The MMM program helped shaped the way he approaches these challenges, he said.

“To be a successful leader in this type of environment,” Maor said, “I need to constantly balance between driving innovation and driving scale, which is the MMM sweet spot.”

With more than a decade in the tech industry, Maor said he observed gaps between engineering and marketing, innovation and scale, and strategy and execution. He said these gaps are symptoms of a “lacking ‘end-to-end’ mindset in organizations,” which in turn holds companies back from moving forward quickly.

Maor’s awareness of these gaps and his desire to help close them is what initially drew him to the MMM program. Although he considered other schools, he found MMM’s curriculum most aligned with the skills he sought.

“What I found more compelling about MMM,” Maor said, “was the focus on the intersection between possibility-based design thinking and analytical-based process thinking.”

He added that MMM taught him to address high-ambiguity problems with a validated learning approach. “Start from the end-user and go back from there,” he said. “Ideate, prototype, test in the real market, and adapt based on customer reactions.”

Maor said the skills he gained from MMM along with the program’s strong relationship with technology recruiters helped make him a successful leader in the tech environment today.

Saeheng also attributed much of his team’s success in the Haas Tech Challenge to MMM’s curriculum.

“This case had a great deal of designing a thoughtful solution in a space of technology and innovation,” Saeheng said. “This is right at the crux of MMM … and we were able to lay out a methodical approach to tackling the case right away.”

Saeheng said opportunities like the Haas Tech Challenge give students the chance to “take a breather from the school work and remember that it’s theory + application.”

Had my interview today, met an alum at a coffee shop down the street from my place. They were extremely nice, was mostly a conversation. Few typical questions though: What makes a good leader, How did you deal with a failure, etc. Now its a waiting game! :-|

Thanks for sharing and thanks for being finished with the app! Where are you located?

My interview is scheduled for next week, also at a coffee shop. It sounds like these interviews are pretty conversational and mostly assessing fit. Fingers crossed all goes well!

Hi, that is quick. I have question:

How do I access the 10 practice questions?
Do I access the link "Please submit your video essay" on my application status page.
I hope this link does not take me directly to the actual video essay questions?

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: To employers, a perfect MBA looks like this (via Poets and Quants)

Betsy Ziegler, associate dean of MBA programs and dean of students at Kellogg, recently spoke with Poets & Quants about what employers look for in MBAs.

Ziegler explained that conversations with recruiters is pivotal when it comes to creating and modifying Kellogg’s curriculum.

“As we think about what majors we should be offering, and what collection of classes in general, thematically what themes we should be talking about, recruiters are at the core,” Ziegler said in the story.

Take a look at the full story to see what skills are considered most essential to employers.
