Hello,

I am in a fortunate yet tough situation as I have to choose between some of real big names in the EMBA universe. Need some help from this forum.

I have applied to 3 of the above programs and have received admits from TRIUM and IMD. Am quite confident of getting one from Kellogg-HKUST as well. A bit dodgy on INSEAD as taking the Executive Assessment isn't something I have energy for. Here's what I am thinking and would appreciate inputs from the group:

- I have entrepreneurial ambitions and am looking at a school that supports those. TRIUM, by far, seems to have the best Capstone program that excites me a lot. Even though TRIUM is ranked no. 2 on the FT list, it still doesn't have the same brand value as an INSEAD or Kellogg.
- IMD is a great school, however, their 2nd module is 100% online study and that's not the most interesting way to learn. I am also not sure how is IMD as a brand in the US.
- Kellogg-HKUST is ranked number one currently, however, has a weekend study routine that requires you to travel to Hong Kong twice a month. Not the easiest on work/family routine. I have ambitions to work in Europe and US for the next few years and this might be helpful for that.

Your candid views on the above schools and any other information that would be helpful for me to decide are much appreciated.

Thank you for your response. I am based in India. My immediate goal is to lead a Sales unit in my company. And long term goal is to set up my own technology firm.

I am torn between Kellogg and TRIUM at this stage. Kellogg is a much bigger brand and TRIUM just feels like the right program with their 'easier to manage' 6 learning modules. I want to look at sales jobs in US or Europe and am not sure whether NYU Stern or HEC hold as much value as Kellogg.

Thanks again.

Congrats on your admits!

I have to say TRIUM is a new brand/name and it is hard to explain to someone (or a lot of people) who have not heard of it, what it is, since LSE does not even offer an MBA but I can definitely see what they were doing - trying to get 3 strong brands but you will likely have some growing pains while Kellogg has a well-oiled EMBA machien with other partner schools (I there are 5 such partnerships overall).

I would pick the program where you can network well with others. One of the big values of the EMBA program, is the network and connections you will build with your peers. It is not about cool professors (which I am sure all programs have) and definitely not about on-campus recruiting since that does not exist really, but the big opportunity is your classmates. You will be learning from them, from their mistakes, and they will be learning from you and your mistakes. If most of the time you are just doing online modules and skype calls, that will not help you build camaraderie. You need to be together, locked in and suffering - that will make you bond and learn. You want to be able to hit someone up 5 or 10 years from now and have them remember you as a person rather than a username like "bb" or something :lol:

Think which program has a good size student body and will allow you to interact frequently with your classmates. See which program has the people you want to network with and then pick that program.

P.S. The HKUST/Kellogg weekend events are quite fun, filled with team-building exercises and events around the Clear Water Bay and HKUST campus. I had a chance to see one of those in action. They used to stay on campus a number of years ago - not sure if that's still the case or if they moved the program downtown now.

Hi embaadmit2019, what did you decide? If you are still in the process of choosing - my recommendation is to have admissions from each program connect you with alums who have a similar profile to you and to get a more unfiltered view, contact alums from each program on Linked In and ask questions and/or set up a quick Skype/phone call. To be honest, the number of respondents should indicate something in and of itself on a comparative basis. Who are you hoping to recognize this brand? Go to the source. Talk to that recruiter, investor, or whatever you are hoping to impress.
