I was accepted into Goizueta with about 1/3 scholarship, Kelley with about 1/2 scholarship, and McCombs with no scholarship. I am looking to go into brand management for a CPG company, and I am open to any location post-MBA. I know Kelley puts out a lot of brand managers into the CPG space, but I also know that Goizueta and McCombs places pretty well also.

Any advice?

Congrats! The three schools are fairly similar in their stance and rankings.

One thing that does concern me with Kelley is that it is in the middle of nowhere which has a bit of an impact on on-campus recruiting and networking - makes it harder. Both Emory and McCombs are in large metro areas and it is easier to build and maintain a network there, though lots of things happen virtually, so you can network even from remote locations like Tuck.

Hey studenthopeful ,

Are you an international candidate or domestic? Based on that, I can help you make the right decision.

Thanks

Hi studenthopeful ,

I think in that case I would rely on following factors to come up with a final decision:

1. Money - do you think spending alot on McCombs will be economical for you? I think Kelley's more money will actually compensate the city travels, thereby making it almost equivalent to what Emory is offering. -- Emory Wins
2. City vs Town - Where would you like to live? Do consider that Kelley would require you to travel alot to Chicago or other cities. This can be avoided by staying in a city itself. -- McCombs/Emory wins.
3. Kelley is very strong in Brand Management but other factors outweigh its strength. -- Kelley Wins

Finally, I would consider talking to students at each of the schools and consider what seems "fit" for me. I think Emory is the overall winner. :tongue_opt1

Let me know if you have any specific questions regarding Emory. Either I or any MBA ambassador who must have reached out to you is happy to help.

Keep us posted and Good luck! :)

Thanks for the feedback. I have narrowed it down to Kelley and McCombs. I am very torn between the two. I am leaning towards Kelley due to my goal of going into brand management, as well as the half tuition scholarship.

Any other advice?

Congrats studenthopeful for both schools.

If I were you, I would search extensively for recruitment in either schools for recruiting brand management for internationals. As far as I know (and maybe mistaken) that those kind of jobs are almost limited to citizens. So Try to check with more students and career office in both schools. The director of career in Kelley 'Eric Johnson' is very humble and approachable as I know from my experience with him. He is honest and direct. Also, In Kelley, you can go directly to the academies section for 'consumer marketing' and shot email for career coach ' Suzanne Fodor'. You will get a lot of direct info. I did so but in consulting years ago.

You can do the same in McCombs and get the same but I do not know links in side McCombs

Hi abhimahna

I think the break is over now ;)

Can you give us an glimpse about bran management for internationals in Goizueta? It would be helpful to see the trend or pattern for internationals.

Thanks

Oops :-D I do not know why I assumed you are international. :-D Sorry for that mistake.

However, You can still connect with career office and visit schools.

I wish you good luck.

Happy new year :cool:

Just a quick update - I am leaning heavily towards Kelley. With my desire to go into Brand Management for a CPG company, as well as the scholarship offer, it seems like Kelley is the choice.

Any last minute opinions/advice before I submit a deposit?
