If Kellogg is a school , one is targeting and has a very low chance of getting one , ideally should he target the one year or the two year program?

Also what are the differences between, the programs and overall which is better

A low chance of getting in will not increase much by choosing one program or the other. Both Kellogg programs (and others, such as the MMM) are quite competitive.

The one year program is meant for more experienced professionals who already have a background in business. The two-year is more flexible, and has a much larger class size as well. The 2-year program is more comprehensive, but it depends on where you are in your career. For more experienced executives, the opportunity cost of the 2-year option may simply be too high.

Hello Expert,

I am not sure if you have gone through my profile before but just a overview and do kindly let me know my chances at kellogg/ top 15 US program

GMAT - 710( QA 49 VA 36 IR - 7/8 AWA 6/6 )

Ethnicity- Indian
Male , 25 years old
Btech (Mechanical) - 2013 - 69% [ Under grad]
12th - 2009 -87%
10th (ICSE) - 2007 - 75%

Work Experience - 43 months as on Date will reach 48 months by August ( At the time of applying will have around 49-50 months work experience)

I am currently working as a business development executive at a startup and have worked with a government agency to design some training programs for their employees to effectively use social media for better E-Governance and have worked on building an android application along with successful launching of a online platform designed for certain companies. ( working for about 2 years here).Working alongside here , My father owns an advertising agency in which i play a role too because it is a family business and i need to look after when he is away and have helped create logos for the Government of Telangana. I am from Hyderabad , India and Telangana is the State. So i do not know how to leverage this work because in my own personal opinion I think it is great to have worked on a few government projects and design logos for it. The logo is evident on their websites and posters and all over the city . So i think i can give me some edge but any opinion regarding this will be considered. Prior to this i worked with Google for a year via a third party. I worked there as a business analyst.

Softwares learned - CAD/CAM , Catia , Solid Works , Pro-E , Ansys (taught during academic rigour ) along with the normal C , C++ , Blue Java , MS office etc.

Q) Do you have a specific Company to work for? - I do not have a specific company to work for. My areas of interest are marketing and consulting . Of course every aspirant desires to be in the best of the best companies. Rather than working for a company would love to have company of my own down the line

Q) what do i want from my MBA? - I want my MBA to provide the knowledge n specific skills to run a business. It comes with experience i am sure but an MBA adds value and can make one think better in terms of the business. I would like to start a company of my own. My father has his own business and i want to diversify its services . A marketing related MBA would help me to make my company more reachable to cater to the needs of clients. At this stage my answer isn't clear and might be vague but i still haven't put a thought to it . Mostly like i wish MBA helps me better to run a business

Q) Mba full time/part time - I would want to do an MBA full time (2/1 year is fine) . I turned 25 last week so at the moment thinking i could use 2 years for an MBA unless a one year MBA suits me more. I am willing to relocate and looking for schools in India , US , UK , Singapore

Areas of Interest - Marketing / Consulting
Dream School – Kellog (Marketing)

What schools would you suggest to apply to based on this Profile assuming i still score a 710 in my retake . Targeting R1 this year , want to join a school in 2018

Other schools on my mind - Yale , Oxford , NUS , NTU , ISB . Also do i stand a chance at Harvard/ Stanford / Haas ( the elite ) if not what can i do to solidify my application for applying to these schools. I would like to apply to 6 schools One in India (ISB) , 3 In the United States , 1 in UK , 1 in Singapore , i haven't given much of a thought but any advice here would help

Target Score for Retake - 740 (QA 50 VA 40) , owing to my poor academics , i thought of giving the exam another shot and I represent a demography of very high scores

Regards,
HK

P.S - sorry for keeping it long , i might have missed out anything , feel free to ask something if it is missing

To attend the 1YR program you need to have a business background in undergrad. Most people are going to do the 2YR program although I think there is a push to expand 1YR. The 1YR is the 2 YR program on steroids. You come in over the summer quarter and bond with classmates as you take an accelerated core program. Then you join the 2YR program as a second year student and take electives and go through recruiting. It helps to already have work experience in your desired area as you will be competing for jobs with the 2YR class who did go through internships. It is a little harder to get in key leadership roles and to fully experience all of the MBA, but you do get a great bonding with your 1YR class and if you have clear career goals and are not changing careers it can be a great way to get an MBA and focus on what you need and save that year to keep working! Both programs have advantages/disadvantages- I suggest you reach out to current Kellogg students through the web site to ask! I did the 1YR program and with hindsight I now think maybe the 2YR would have been better but the 1YR program was also very good and I am still in touch with many classmates so you definitely have time to feel like you are part of the culture there.
Also what are the differences between, the programs and overall which is better

Both programs are tough to crack especially if you are not a fit on paper. The program at Kellogg target if it makes sense to you and your goals would be the PT MBA, standards tend to be more "reasonable" in that program
