FROM Kellogg EMBA Students Blog: The 2020 Kellogg Application Is Open!
The big day is here! The 2020 application for Full-Time Kellogg MBA Programs is officially open.

As you browse the questions, I encourage you to take your time and organize your thoughts on what you’d like to tell us. In this post, I’ll provide some insight into why we made the changes and how you can put your best foot forward.

Tips for completing the 2020 Kellogg application


Familiarize yourself with our criteria


At Kellogg, we have always been transparent in what we seek in our students. We look for people who:

  • Can motivate a team to drive impact
  • Are not afraid to question the status quo and seek the non-obvious solutions
  • Possess creativity and talent that is rooted in self-awareness
  • Seek diversity in their networks and teams
  • Are eager to dive in and collaborate with an engaged, ambitious community of peers

From our conversations with students, we know that the most challenging trait to demonstrate and evaluate continues to be leadership. We’re looking specifically for examples of spearheading change, striving for excellence or creating a lasting impact. We want our students to be the kind of people who aim to leave an innovative mark on their companies before and after Kellogg.

You have to present yourself in the essays. Especially in long term goals, you have to present your ideas and career aspirations.

Hi There,

The wording of this essay prompt suggests that they have also asked you the short term and long term goals.
Basically, they are trying to understand the connection between your past experiences and your future goals. In other words, what experience(s) in the past have motivated you to pursue these goals? In the course of your work, have you seen a business problem that you wish to tackle and that has driven your stated career goals? Or do you see an opportunity for growth which has informed your goals?

Sometimes applicants write lofty career goals, which are completely disassociated from their work experience (say for example, writing about joining the social sector, when nothing in your resume points to your interest or involvement in this sector). This question should make you think about how your story- past, present and future connects together, and thus shows coherence

Business schools want to understand you. They want to know your reasons for coming, how you intend to make an impact while there, and what you'll do after.

Your application materials, including this answer, should highlight your strengths and personal characteristics ("personal brand"), how they've manifested in your life and career to date ("narratives"), and your short and long-term goals ("post-school goals"). This logical arc should hinge not only on how the MBA will not only allow you to move from past to future, but how the MBA at that school is critical in your ability to do so.

This question wants to make sure you really know why you're chasing these goals. Tying to your history, strengths, and previous jobs make your answer more compelling. Think:

- I liked this part of my work, but not this, so I want to do this
- I've been doing this and I want to accelerate my trajectory
- I have learned a lot about this sector and now want to jump in

Hi Friends! Application season has started so I thought I would do a little AMA for those applying to Kellogg and wanting some info.

I’m a rising second year student in Kellogg’s 2Y program. I’m currently doing my internship in tech. Happy to answer any questions you may have about what the program is like or anything really.

For those of you applying to Stanford, you can get a bit more mileage out of the introspection for What Matters Most with Kellogg essay 2 here – essays for both schools should illustrate a transformative experience and how it reflects your present day values.

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Full-Time MBA Application Series: Career Goals
By Christine Mayer, director of admissions

As you know, the career goals you put in your application are binding for the rest of your life. You may never waver from them and will be expected to follow only them at Kellogg and beyond…

I’m obviously kidding! But we know articulating your career goals can be a source of stress in this process. Some of you may have specific long-term goals but be trying to figure immediate steps while others may have identified a next step or phase but are open to what the future holds beyond that. The good news is that both are acceptable, and we’re looking to understand you and where you want to go.

We ask you to reflect on your career goals because the job search process can start quickly, with companies coming on campus to woo and impress you just a few weeks into your first quarter. Because you will be exposed to new opportunities and companies you had never even considered, it’s important to do that reflection ahead of time so that you come in with a grounding of what’s important to you and where you think you want to go. This will help you make sense of all the opportunities in front of you and weed out the noise and confusion from the things that really matter to you. You can still change your mind and explore new paths, but you need to be grounded in a starting point or you’ll find yourself quickly overwhelmed and suffering from FOMO for things you aren’t even interested in!

As you consider your career goals, I have a few pieces of advice on how to identify them and how to share them with us:

  • Think about what you like most/least about your work or your company. Identifying things you enjoying doing is more likely to lead you to a compatible next step than trying to get away from things you don’t like.
  • Talk to people that do what you want to do. Leverage those in your company or your LinkedIn network and find out what they do every day. Does it sound like something you’d like? How did they get to where they are today? This may help you identify intermediate steps to your ultimate goal.
  • Tell us the truth! One pitfall we see is people telling us what they think we want to hear. This can be a problem in two ways. One is in the application review – when the goal you give us doesn’t really fit with where you’ve been or where you want to go, it can make it hard to understand your path and how the MBA will help you – it may actually raise more of a question mark around your goals. The other place this can cause an issue is after you’re admitted. We match resources to you based on what you tell us in the application, like connecting you with current students/alums who share a similar path. When applicants say one thing in the application but actually want a different path, it means we’re not connecting you with the most useful resources to help you with your decision.

So do some research to help you form your goals and discover how you plan to leverage your path and the Kellogg MBA to get where you want to go. The clearer it is to you, the clearer it will be to us, and you’ll be setting yourself up for success when you start at Kellogg!

No workout, I meant to say Stanford. There is a lot you can leverage between the schools because the essays for both Stanford and Kellogg speak to your values

This career goals blog is absolutely great.

#2 is the most underutilized strategy in MBA admissions; applicants tell me they are afraid of not looking like the "know enough" but who cares...the person you are contacting realizes it is an informational interview; that is why you are reaching out...

this process requires that you are informed about yourself, your schools and your goals. Clear goals provide a type of RUDDER for everything else; it provides momentum for this long grueling process. Informed goals lead to good school choices and when you are in b school you can better leverage your time there! Learn some stuff rather than recruit for 3 different industries...what a waste.

Informational interviews with people doing the job is indispensable in researching your goals.

What is really cool, my clients get offered internship interviews from these calls sometimes. There is no reason to wait for business school to start networking.

One question - In the Employer section of the application, there is an area that asks for "Years of full-time work experience (upon matriculation, excludes internships)"

Does that mean years of expected work experience on Aug 2020? So in other words should I add a year of work experience to my current work experience?
