Hello All,

I would just like to start a thread for people who have applied to Kellogg MSMS (Masters in Management Studies, Russell Fellows Program) either: Round 1, Round 2, or Round 3.

To take a tab on people's background, stats, and application decision.

I'm late to the party and only heard about the program last weekend. Luckily, I have just enough time to get my application in and give it a shot.

Any thoughts on my chances?

GPA:3.83
GMAT: 720 (was hoping for a little better, but I guess that's what happens when you take it so short notice)
Graduating from Loyola with a BS in Environmental Science and a BA in Environmental Policy.

^ Pretty good in my opinion. Solid GMAT and good GPA. Just make sure you can communicate your goals and how Kellogg would help you achieve them and how you could contribute to the Kellogg community.

Good luck!

P.S. Found out I got in R2!

Pjax3600 as an alum of the Russell Fellows Program- i think you are good to go- make sure your essays are well written and prep hard on interviews (behavioral)- and it should be good.

great program, perfect for consulting.

The Kellogg Russell Fellows program is fairly new compared to some of the more established Masters in Management programs offered by top schools around the world. US schools (with the exception of Duke Fuqua) are just about waking up now to the possibilities of early career programs, including Master in Management equivalents, and early career MBA programs. The Kellogg Russell Fellows program, along with the Michigan Ross Master of Management, and the Duke MMS, are some of the best non-MBA master’s options for business education. This post looks at a brief overview of the Russell Fellows, and also highlights the success story of a GyanOne client – an Indian applicant who made it to the program in 2016.

Kellogg Russell Fellows – is it a great option?
While the number of MiM/early career MBA programs is consistently growing, the Kellogg Russell Fellows program (MSMS) stands out by dint of its brand value, placement rate (100% at 3 months, as reported by Kellogg), and course structure. The program is explicitly meant for students with a non-business background (indeed, students from a business undergraduate background are ineligible). Similarly, the program only accepts applications from college seniors in the final year of their undergraduate programs. The program initially had only 2 rounds of admission (with deadlines in October and February), which Kellogg increased to 3 this year (adding an April deadline as well).

The program itself features only the basics in business education, so it is meant for students who wish to make a career change to the business side, rather than those really looking for an MBA equivalent. However, the courses are supplemented through teaching by the outstanding Kellogg faculty, the Kellogg reputation, and Kellogg’s vaunted Global Initiatives in Management (GIM) program. At a relatively early stage of their career, Kellogg MSMS students will also need greater career support, and Kellogg ensures that through its personalized support structure. READ MORE

I am a 2016 B.Tech passout looking to apply for MiM programs in 2017. I am currently preparing to write GMAT and will be writing it in the first week of November. I noticed the fact that you mentioned about Kellogg only accepting seniors in the final year of their UG degree. So does it mean that I have no chance of applying for Kellogg or that I still have a chance if my application essays are good enough?
Thanks in advance. GyanOne

Hi Akash

You will be eligible to apply if you graduated in or after May 2016.

Look at the eligibility tab on this page - Kellogg MSMS admissions

The transfer certificate from my UG college states the date of my leaving the course as 30th April 2016. Just one day before May 1st. Will this be an issue ?

I think Kellogg should probably be ok with it, but still you should check with them once. Very technically, you are not eligible, but I think Kellogg, in all probability, should be willing to consider your case.

Thanks MedBusiness123 for starting a thread for MSMS applicants. I've added this program in forum database, so that prospective applicants can add it on their profiles and we can have applicant stats, decision updates on the tables displayed on first post.

I request all prospective applicants to add MSMS program on your MBA Timeline. It will give some stats and insights for others to look into. mbatimeline?fl=menu

An update:

I did end up getting in last year, and with some money as well, but had an internship offer I felt I couldn't turn down. Long story short, the internship didn't go anywhere permanent, so I just applied R1 for 2017 intake and will hear back in December.

They did, and to give me scholarship information, so I'm not sure that they're calling everyone. But the email should be out soon either way!
