Anybody from India got any notification for interview invites or waivers? Panicking here!


I haven't got one as yet either


I haven't got anything yet either!!


sachdix adimitl86 ankurq7 razordude1717 - I just got an email from Kellogg to schedule my interview in a week. The next available slot was Oct. 23rd (which was too close!) and at 1.30AM IST so I opted for a later date so that I could take the interview at a more comfortable time. I have my interview scheduled on Nov. 7th! Wish me luck!

abhjtm - When did you schedule your interview for?

Good luck to all those waiting for invites! :) Kellogg has a rep for interviewing almost everyone, or as many as it can manage given the volume of apps - so stay hopeful!

Congrats vandanasathpathy ..Rock the interview...
However, I fail to understand why are Kellogg having skype interviews in India..They have a strong alumni presence in the country! Guess all of them are too busy to entertain hopefuls like myself!

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Get to know MMM student Shriansh Shrivastava
Image
Shriansh Shrivastava is a first-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time MMM Program. In this Q&A, he talks about his background, why he chose Kellogg and what he loves about the MMM Program.

WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE COMING TO KELLOGG?

I grew up in India, spent 10 years in the United Kingdom, where I did undergrad, then an awesome job working with unreleased cellphones, and then I worked on a mental health suicide prevention project – using smartphones, of course. I finally spent a year in Canada working for an ATM software company.



WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO ATTEND KELLOGG?

The people, really. During my application process, the alums that genuinely seemed to care that I get in and gave me the most help and guidance were Kellogg MBAs. That was the deciding factor.

WHY DID YOU PURSUE THE MMM PROGRAM?

I chose it because it’s cool, really. But seriously, MMM this year has a fascinating second degree – a Master of Science in Design Innovation – which stresses a lot on design thinking and creativity. I was sold at the words “design innovation.”

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING TO LEARN AT KELLOGG?

How to be a better version of me! Everything Kellogg offers – academics, extracurricular and networking – plays into this.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO AFTER GRADUATING?

Innovation in big tech – in broad area of mobile/telecommunications.

Learn more about the MMM Program.

Careers Uncorked: A Women’s Business Association networking event  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Careers Uncorked: A Women’s Business Association networking event
Image

It’s official: the leaves have changed and fall is here. For first-year students at Kellogg, that means the recruiting season has begun. On the evening of October 15, 130 first-year Kellogg women got the chance to kick off the season in style at “Careers Uncorked,” an exclusive event hosted by Kellogg’s Women’s Business Association (WBA).

“Careers Uncorked” brought representatives from 25 premier companies to campus, giving first-year Kellogg women the opportunity to start networking in a unique and informal setting.

This year’s list of companies included:

Accenture
Bain
Baxter
BCG
Colgate

Danaher
Deloitte
Dish
E.J. Gallo
Eaton

Education Pioneers
Emerson
General Mills
Goldman Sachs
Intuit

Johnson & Johnson
JP Morgan
Liberty Mutual
McKinsey
Microsoft

Parthenon
Prudential
Target
United
Walmart

Regardless of their recruiting goals, first-year women got the chance to start exploring companies and practice their elevator pitch.

“The best part of ‘Careers Uncorked’ was the low pressure environment,” first-year student Amanda McCarthy said. “The company representatives were all extremely approachable and I felt as though I was able to have genuine, comfortable conversations with Kellogg alumna who were representing their companies.”

Jennifer Sim had a similar feeling about the event.

“For many of us, it’s been many years since we’ve had to go through recruiting, so my networking skills were quite rusty,” Sim said. “‘Careers Uncorked’ was a great way to practice my pitch in a low-key environment, learn more about each company and even explore industries that I had not previously considered.”

Image

In order to help the students prepare for their first networking event of the year, the Professional Development Committee of the WBA hosted a “Networking 101” seminar one week prior to ‘Careers Uncorked.’ The workshop, hosted in partnership with Kellogg’s Career Management Center, included tips on the do’s and don’ts of networking events, how to formulate your elevator pitch and more.

And perhaps best of all, this is just the beginning for the Kellogg WBA. The club already has several events in the pipeline, including dinners with female alumna from different industries and negotiations seminars to help second-year women with their full-time offers.

Stay tuned throughout the year to get recaps on WBA events and initiatives.

Pooja Prasad is a second-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year MBA program. She serves as VP of Marketing for the WBA. Prior to Kellogg, she spent four years at Adobe on their social media team. For her summer internship, she worked on Microsoft’s media team.

For on campus interviews, is there any difference between interviewing with a student and interviewing with someone from admissions (i.e. are 'better' candidates matched with admissions staff)?

What you can expect at Diversity Weekend  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: What you can expect at Diversity Weekend
Image

Are you still looking to experience what it would be like pursuing your MBA at Kellogg? If so, you might want to consider attending our upcoming Diversity Weekend.

Diversity Weekend is an annual preview event for prospective students hosted by the Kellogg Admissions Team, the Africa Business ClubBlack Management Association and Hispanic Management Association.

This year’s event is scheduled for Nov. 7-9.

The weekend will kick off Friday morning with a talk by Dean Sally Blount. Professor Julie Hennessy and Assistant Professor Michele Rogers will each teach a mock class for the prospective students. Attendees will hear from Career Management Center representatives about resources and opportunities available to students, and they will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the Admissions staff.

Throughout the weekend, prospective students will be able to meet and interact with current students and alumni.

One of the highlights of this year’s event is that it coincides with the student-led Black Management Association (BMA) Conference, “The Balancing Act: The Essential Equilibrium Between Your Career and Personal Pursuits.” The goal of this year’s conference is to hone in on three major points:

  • Unconventional career planning
  • The pursuit of philanthropic and entrepreneurial passions
  • Fulfilling personal/family goals
Scheduled conference keynotes include:

  • An executive conversation with Dean Blount and Jim Reynolds ’82, chairman and CEO of Loop Capital
  • A keynote address from Moët Hennessy Senior Vice President Rodney Williams ’90, who will discuss “From MBA to Senior Leader: The X Factors”
The conference will also feature a variety of panel discussions and networking opportunities.

If you have any questions about Diversity Weekend, please email Michelle Maxwell in the Office of Admissions.
