I was recently admitted to the Kellogg MMM program and MIT Sloan. I was given $40K to Kellogg and $50K to Sloan. Kellogg is also slightly more expensive given the additional summer quarter and the fellowship I received for Sloan also comes with additional mentorship and leadership development opportunities.

My immediate post-MBA goal is MBB or design consulting. I eventually want to go into VC. For consulting, I know both schools have strong numbers with MBB, but the MMM program might give me a better edge for design consulting. I also like that Kellogg has an open interview policy, which takes away some of the risk of applying for these really competitive firms. MIT Sloan does have good connections with the design consulting firms in its area, so I'm not sure how much the extra degree in design innovation would matter in the end.

For VC, I like that Kellogg has experiential opportunities like the VC Lab and the San Francisco Immersion Quarter, but the MIT brand might be stronger in this area despite the lack of VC experiential courses.

I also applied for the HKS MPP program, which I would do as a concurrent degree with MIT Sloan. This might push Sloan over the edge for me if I get in, but given the commitment deadlines of the schools, I have to decide before I hear back from HKS.

Hi, I’m not an expert here, but I’ll try to give you my perspective.

I really don’t think there’s a relevant $$$ difference here. MIT gave you 10k extra, but the school costs a little bit more than Kellogg. And even if you consider living expenses of 3 extras months in Evanston, it would mean only 5-10% of a typical total mba cost. I would’t choose for money.

For your career goals it seem to be equally great schools as well.
MBB- both are great
Design consulting - Kellogg slightly better
VC - maybe equally good, maybe MIT is slightly better bc of the greater contact with start ups (I’ve been reading about this career path too and some people say that it’s extremely difficult to go to VC if you are not from GSB or HBS, not sure if that info is correct).

If you are international (and thinks about staying in US), a relevant advantage of Kellogg MMM is the possibility of visa extension due to the STEM degree.

If you are from US, I suggest you to choose the culture you like best. Both schools are great, just pick the one where you will have the best 2 years experience.
