my interviewer just cancelled :(

we were going to have the interview tomorrow morning. I just received an email from the admissions office saying: "We have your interview request and you will receive an email with more information about your interview requirement within the next week."

I worry about getting a waiver, I really wanted to have the interview

Don't think the Kellogg interview invite/waiver has any bearing on the final decision. Not like other schools where no interview=Ding. That's how it appears at least... Don't worry yet!

Depending on where you are from, I believe it actually does. I don't know the list of countries...but I know India is one of them.

From Dell to Kellogg: How I got where I am today  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: From Dell to Kellogg: How I got where I am today
Image
I came to Kellogg after four years in corporate finance at Dell, based in Austin, Texas. I was part of a leadership development program where I had the opportunity to rotate through roles all across the finance and accounting function.

Once Dell went private, I decided I would take the opportunity to apply to business school for the fall. I always knew I wanted to go back, but the leveraged buyout was definitely the catalyst.

While applying, I was trying to decide which business school would be best for me. Luckily I ended up with a couple of options, but after attending DAK (Day at Kellogg – our version of admitted students weekend) there was definitely only one choice! I loved how students planned all the weekend events. That just proved to me how much the people here care about Kellogg. After being around my new classmates for a couple of months, I can tell that was the right decision.

Another reason I was drawn to Kellogg was the generalized (and flexible) curriculum. Coming from a business background, the opportunity to waive some of the core classes really appealed to me. This way I could get right into some electives, allowing me to get deeper into subjects I am interested in learning more about.

At Kellogg, I joined the Two-Year program. Even though I’m coming from a business background, I knew I wanted the opportunity to have a summer internship and try something new. I am really excited about the opportunities to take new classes in areas I’ve never experienced. I’m particularly excited about learning more about competitive strategy and MORS (management and organizations).

After graduation, I hope to work in management consulting. Ideally this will give me the opportunity to work across a variety of both industries and functions and apply what I learn at Kellogg.

Ryan Grandin is a first-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year Program. Prior to moving to Evanston, he worked in a variety of finance and accounting roles at Dell, Inc.

Had my Interview with an Alum today.

VERY conversational. He made it extremely comfortable for me and we just had a conversation about:

What I've done in the past.
My Future goals and why an MBA is required.
Why Kellogg
How I can contribute to the Kellogg Community.
Asked him questions about his experiences for 15 mins or so.

Total of about 45 mins. It didn't feel like an interview as much as it felt like a conversation to see if I was a fit for Kellogg.

It went "ok". I've had better interviews, I've had worse.

Good luck to everyone else!

Now the waiting begins for you! :)

Wish my interviewer responds to my email. It has been a couple of days without a reply to schedule an interview. I'm in a different kind of waiting game by the looks of it.

Growing sports business at Kellogg, Northwestern  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Growing sports business at Kellogg, Northwestern
Image

As the global dynamics of sports business continue to change, Kellogg has emerged as a leading business school in terms of strategic thinking and marketing in this field. The Sports Business Club (SBC) and Sports Business Conference are the two primary passageways for the industry at our school.

As Chair of the Sports Business Conference and Vice President of Careers for the SBC, it is important for me (and the rest of our great second year leadership) to develop a coherent and consistent plan for all of our future leaders. Combining the resources of faculty, classmates, administration, and leaders from other schools at Northwestern, has been a critical mission for the club and the Sports Business Conference. If we want Kellogg and Northwestern alumni to become leaders in sports business, it is vital we all work together.

In the past two years alone, Kellogg has hosted professionals from all of Chicago’s major sports teams, as well as national and international organization representatives from VISA, Wasserman Media Group, YouTube Sports and more. The SBC, in particular, has grown in membership each year and continues to attract incoming students who view sports business as a viable career path.

Most recently, on Thursday, October 16, the SBC worked in collaboration with Medill to present a Sports Business Careers Panel to more than 45 students. Panelists came from US Soccer, Gatorade, ESPN, Intersport and NASCAR. Talking about strategic marketing, new developments in media and opportunities for MBAs proved truly valuable for both the Kellogg and Medill students in the room, many of who stuck around well after the presentation to talk to the panelists. Themes of networking, internships and “hustle” emerged as key drivers of entry and essential for future success in the industry.

The SBC continues to work with many areas of sports at Northwestern and beyond, from sending teams to case competitions at UCLA and MIT to working with the Athletic Director’s Office on internal projects. Last year, Kellogg’s own team finished in second place at the MIT Conference out of fifty domestic and international business schools.

In the future, panels such as the one on Thursday will be emphasized in collaboration across all Northwestern schools. As law, medicine, journalism and other areas continue to intertwine with business, we hope that Kellogg will be at the forefront of the business side of sports. The future looks very bright for the school and the industry.

Sandeep Satish is a second-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year Program. Prior to moving to Evanston, he worked in investment banking at Citigroup in New York City. This summer, he interned with Major League Baseball at the Commissioner’s Office and hopes to stay in sports business after graduation.
