Hi everyone,

Hoping to get some opinions and feedback on Kellogg vs. Columbia for general management. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

About me:
Essentially, all I'm certain of is that I do not want to go into investment banking -areas of interest range from consulting, consumer goods, product management, etc. (very broad interests at the moment, I realize).

Location-wise, I would slightly prefer to end up in New York vs. Chicago/elsewhere after graduation but I'd say this is not a major factor. I'm an international student from Canada so both cities would be a move from where I currently am.

Current concerns:
-I've heard great things about the Kellogg student culture and alumni network vs. some feedback that Columbia can feel like a commuter school and has a less structured student community
-Career services and job opportunities -there seems to be more noise around the fact that Kellogg has a more supportive career services and options outside of purely MBB or banking
-Columbia has the Ivy league brand name and I'm wondering how that affects school reputation both domestically and internationally

Congratulations!

The consensus seems to be Kellogg as the more interesting and trending up school. Kellogg has had about a 3 spot differential in rankings over the past 10 years. With your pretty open-minded approach to recruiting, either school would do a great service in terms of furthering your career goals. See if you can find other differentiators (e.g. employer locations, your future preferred location, etc). Lots of discussions about the 2:

Based on your goals, I'm leaning towards Kellogg. It has strong culture and alumni are supportive.

Have you secured any scholarship from any of them?

Yes, $70K from Kellogg but no mention of anything from the Columbia admit call.

I think goals plus money, then Kellogg will be good deal for you.

Given lack of interest in finance + $70K scholarship, Kellogg seems like the easy choice here

Another chime in for Kellogg. With that $$ and your other factors, seems like a good bet. Have a blast at the admitted student weekend.

I would 100% select Kellogg. It's a phenomenal institution, and consistently outranks CBS. While Columbia is an Ivy league, that does not matter for business school (ie. kellogg is superior than tuck or CBS). On location, I would be confident that you can recruit to any main city from Kellogg

Lastly, because your interest are broad at the moment, Kellogg is a great place to explore -- lots of opportunities. Also has a very diverse, interesting, emotionally-intelligent class.

This is a no brainer for Kellogg. Better MBA brand, known as having a top culture, still in a major city, more recruiting diversity. With money its a no contest. Congrats!
