Admitted to both programs with the goal of a post-mba position in Chicago. Under 30 with the goal of moving from marketing into tech with a client service focus.

Congrats on your admits! This is a hard one....


I ended up voting for Tuck... full time experience is more transformative and helps to transition into a new role and puts more focus on your career. PT is more for folks tooling to stay within the current org or industry and further their experience.

With a FT program, you would have a summer internship, go through a recruiting cycle and be forced to recruit as opposed to having a job, school, and recruiting on a side.

Congrats!

Thank you! My worry is that I did not love Hanover and my end goal is to come back to Chicago. I agree that FT is more transformative but recruiting will most likely happen for other cities.

I hear you. I would connect with someone at Kellogg PT and ask them how they feel are opportunities to switch industries. At the same time if you have a network in Chicago or you feel you could network well while having a FT job and going to school, then the issue of FT bs PT is mitigated.

To put this perspective, nobody would ever know if you did you MBA full time or part time, so both MBAs carry the same weight.
The brand value of the school and the network that it provides matters more.
You’ll get the same opportunities for employment in the part time program at Kellogg as the full time MBAs. I do feel that working and getting an MBA may get hard and you’ll have limited time for the coffee chats and stuff
I would vote for Kellogg part time here over full time at Tuck

If getting your dream job is the objective of your MBA, Kellogg part time is a better choice.

I have read some place that Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella did the MBA from Booth in the part time weekend format

You have seen a lot of 2.5-year FT MBA programs that allow people to work while they study?

Yes, everyone (with a bit of common sense) would know if it is FT or PT even if one tries to hide it, but that’s missing the point. I assume the OP knows that they won’t get a job just because they got a piece of paper with the Kellogg on it - everyone of the other 1,000 FT and PT grads did too.

Kellogg is a good move with the Chicago end goal but it would depend on a large number of variables (job OP would have while at school, ability to network, interview skills, risk aversion, etc)

Additionally, I want to point out that I know someone from a part time program who is starting at BCG this month.
He was an associate/director at an insurance company and he networked his way to get the BCG offer.
It’s not hard changing industries from a part time program either

Agree to disagree is good but without any good reasoning isn’t worth anyone’s time. Who told you that Kellogg PT Folks have the same recruiting tools and opportunities as those of FT? You do get some comparable opportunities but more often than not the company touchpoints are different.

Some companies are also particular to mention that they are only hiring FT MBA folks.

To your point of BCG’s example, it’s just 1 anecdote and no way connected to what the OP initially mentioned.

I agree with bb that as a PT person, you’ll have to network a lot lot more and even though Tuck isn’t in Chicago, a FT MBA should be the best bet here.

Yo OP, if I were you, I would reach our to current students to get more insights into this discussion. Non of the participants in this forum have been part of the program, so people on ground zero would have more information

The Kellogg website does say that they provide complete career support, so you’ll have to understand that

That reminds me that I have another friend who went to Kellogg in the part time format and he was recruited by Strategy&, this was 4 years back

JohnJohnJ - the poster above you ENGRTOMBA2018 is a recent Kellogg alum lol.

You are probably the only one in this whole thread who did not go to business school.

Also, anecdotal evidence about I know this guy who went to BCG or that guy who went to Strategy& does nothing for the post.

Anyway, back to the question.

Several PT students get comparable opportunities as FT students, especially during full time recruiting. However, making the best use of those opportunities are tough.

One of the best ways to get a consulting gig is through the summer internship and you will miss out on that most likely if you are a PT student. Also, there will be many recruiting events throughout the week (which often leads to getting an interview and a positive impression with firms) that might be tough for someone who has a full-time job.

Now that your goals are in tech with a client service focus, you are most likely looking at sales, business development or marketing roles. In my opinion, the FT or PT differences for these roles would not be that significant and you would not lose a lot of money in opportunity cost.

The best path forward is to figure out the roles and the companies that you actually want to work for and start networking with those people from Kellogg and Tuck to see if there will be a big downside if you are in the PT program.

I am a part time student at Booth and I can’t talk about Kellogg, but I see a lot of companies hiring part time students and part-time students interviewing for some of the big three consulting firms.
I do agree that the two year day time students probably have many more opportunities, it isn’t too bad for us.
