Does anybody knows how long does it take for the final decision once you did the interview?


You will only get to hear about the final decision on the deadline day and not before. I believe for R2 it is March 23, 2016.

My investment banking experience at Kellogg [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: My investment banking experience at Kellogg
Image
Tim Bossidy’s passion for finance is what brought him to Kellogg, where he is a second-year student. He felt the school’s curriculum, personalized career support and collaborative community would set him apart as he pursued a career in investment banking.

This past summer, Tim was one of four Kellogg students who interned at Goldman Sachs. All four will return to work at Goldman Sachs full time after graduation.

Tim recently participated in a Career Management Center webinar about career opportunities and career support at Kellogg. Watch the entire webinar, or continue reading to see what Tim had to say about recruiting, Kellogg’s finance curriculum and the school’s uniquely supportive community.

On choosing Kellogg
I was incredibly impressed with the quality of finance professors here. Day at Kellogg is really what sealed the deal for me. The Investment Banking and Capital Management club gave a presentation and talked about the personalized support you get for IB here at Kellogg.

Additionally, one of the keynote alumni speakers was one of the top global partners at Goldman Sachs. I really started to get excited about the opportunities of recruiting to the sell-side at Kellogg.

On recruiting
My experience recruiting was really positive. Investment banking recruiting is a unique animal. It’s a really intense process, but part of why it’s so intense is because of how much demand there is from investment banks for Kellogg students. We had 35 people recruiting for investment banking and more than 30 investment banks coming in to recruit the 35 of us. We spent a lot of time talking to a lot of different bankers, which was a little overwhelming at times, but it was also a really nice position to be in.

On interning, and getting a job offer, from Goldman Sachs
Overall it’s pretty amazing, a little scary how much MBA interns are trusted to jump right in with immediate responsibility. Given those responsibilities, it is really important that you’re at a school where your courses are preparing you. At Kellogg, I thought the finance curriculum was awesome. Not only was I confident in feeling incredibly prepared and that the Kellogg students were some the best prepared among the MBA interns, but out of the four of us (Kellogg students) at Goldman Sachs US, there was a 100% offer rate. We’re all going back. It really speaks to the quality of teaching here.

On the alumni network
The pass-it-on, giveback culture stays with people as alumni. You really don’t stop drinking the Kellogg Kool-Aid, so to speak, after you leave. The Kellogg alumni at Goldman were actively reaching out to me throughout the summer, checking in and giving me advice. If they ever got feedback of something I needed to tweak or work on, they would give me a call. They were so invested in me not only liking my summer, but me getting that full-time offer.

I had a fantastic summer, and thanks to the support of Kellogg and the students here especially, I’m going to be really well prepared going back.

On the school’s unique community
After Day at Kellogg, you get a really good feel for whether or not Kellogg is a “fit.” For me it was definitely the right fit. There’s an amazing sense of community here. There really is a give-back-to-your-fellow-classmates mentality.

I can’t say enough about the community here. You have this amazing network of people who are helping you and invested in making sure you get a great job.

Watch the complete Career Opportunities webinar.

I'm submitted my application in R2 for the 1Y program. I have been asked to take the 4 eligibility courses Eco, Stats, Marketing and Operations, assuming I get admitted. Where can I take those courses from? Are there courses I can take at University of Texas in Dallas that complete within June? Is CFA an option?

Interesting request. I personally dont know anything about it as I am a 2Y admit but I have marker another GC user who has been accepted into Kellogg's 1Y program. Alternately, you can ask Kellogg admissions directly by sending them an email at MBAadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu or calling them up at +1-847-491-330 .

generalist : Is this a standard request to all 1Y applicants or some selected people to show competence in particular topics?

As an international applicant, is it a bad idea to apply in R3?

I didnt apply in round 1/2 because of some potential personal commitments.

I'm an Indian Female with a 680 and a fairly strong professional profile (3 promotions in 40 months, international work ex., leadership positions, selective Ivy summer program etc)

This is not the correct forum to ask these questions. Post your questions at ask-admission-consultants-124/?fl=menu

As for closing the loop, as an international candidate, Kellogg recommends that you submit your application latest by R2 as this gives you more time to work on visa issues if you get accepted. Additionally, you might be a bit disadvantage while applying in R3 as most of the seats would have been filled by then.

This is the standard eligibility requirement for 1Y students - to have these four courses taken in some form in the last ten years. My issue is that I have taken these courses in my previous MBA, but with poor grades (grade B or above needed), so have to take them again. I have emailed the Eligibility office and am awaiting their response.

I would like to thank an admissions staff member with whom I met, but embarrassingly I do not remember the name.

I am looking for a directory in hopes of conjuring up some memory!

Does anyone know if one exists?

I am sure it exists but I can not locate one even after an admit from Kellogg. Your best bet is to email admissions at the email ID above and explain your question that you are seeking to know the email ID of the admissions person who represented Kellogg at XYZ event on XXX. They might be able to provide that information.

I would do a quick search on LinkedIn - look for "admissions" and select Kellogg School of Management in the company filter.Hopefully that's helpful.

BOOKMARKED
FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Bringing design thinking to the healthcare industry
Image

This is part of an ongoing series highlighting MMM summer internship experiences.

Name: Alyssa Lorenz

Industry: Medical Devices

Company: Johnson & Johnsonhttp://www.sharedforkids.com/Function: New Product Development / Global Strategic Marketing

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

I have always been passionate about health and wellness, and I’ve recently become interested in using design thinking to create patient-centered solutions that improve health outcomes and access to care.

As a result, I was super excited for the opportunity to work on a global new product development project at Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices this summer. They’re developing a new product that’s primarily targeted at one cancer procedure, and my job was to understand how the current product could and could not meet needs I uncovered in a different cancer procedure.

I then worked with our R&D, Industrial Design, Global Business Insights and Surgical Innovation teams to ideate around design changes that would allow the product to better meet the needs for this procedure and develop a strategy and business case for these changes.

I followed the entire Design Thinking framework, from observations to insights to “how might we” statements to potential solutions, always with the needs of the surgeon and patient in mind.

I was surprised by how entrepreneurial my job felt the entire time, especially at such a giant company. My team gave me this problem to solve and then let me try to solve it however I saw fit, using mostly tools and frameworks that I learned as a MMM student. Also, since my procedure was performed mostly in Asia, I spent significant time working with Asia-Pac teams and even traveled to China to perform ethnographic research.

The culture at J&J is incredibly welcoming and supportive, with a strong system of mentors and personal/professional development, and the Company works hard to take care of its people. Mostly importantly, I felt like my job had a purpose — trying to improve outcomes for cancer surgery (aka save lives!) — so it was easy to be excited and passionate about my work, no matter how challenging.

I think people have this idea that innovation and design are most relevant in high tech or consumer products, but they can be so powerful and influential when also applied to healthcare. It’s amazing!

In addition to loving my job, Cincinnati was also a pleasant surprise! There are a ton of urban parks throughout the city for hiking, a huge restaurant and craft brewery scene, many walkable neighborhoods, running/biking clubs, and free concerts throughout the summer. I was hesitant at first to go somewhere without a built-in Kellogg crew, but it pushed me to meet a lot of new awesome people and explore the city, something I really appreciated.
