Kellogg vs IESE ($$) for Consulting  [#permalink]

Hi,

Profile: Brazilian, 29yo, Consumer goods - food company, Internal consulting projects role
Target industry after MBA - Consulting for MBB
Curious about - Tech companies, Pos-MBA leadership programs (generally)
Target geography - Back to Brazil, California, Europe (somewhere warm)
Can get Italian citizenship with right to work in EU

Decision drivers: Lifestyle, Freedom to change my mind about jobs/geographies, Intellectual development, Network (social and professionally).



So i have one of those sweet problems to solve that i would love to get some insights on.
Ideally I will switch to consulting, but i do love to have the right to change my mind in the way.

I assume that is hard to switch to Consulting MBB outside of Brazil since I come from a consumer goods background (eventhough from a internal consulting role).
I also assume that to change to MBB in Brazil either IESE or Kellogg are good choices.

Doubts:
1. Am I restricting my possible choices later (right to change my mind) if I go to IESE?
2. Are the Tech markets in Europe bad?
3. Is it feasible to change to Consulting in Europe with a Italian passaport, where to?


Would love to hear your thoughts :)

I don’t know a whole lot about the pull IESE has but I feel Kellogg will be tough to beat.

At any program you will have to work your ass off to land an MBB spot (your whole class would like to have one and you will have to outmaneuver them).

You feel the programs are comparable? Do you have an R2 play?

In Brazil they do. It's completely feasible to get to mbb in Brazil studying at IESE. I don't know about Europe.
If staying in California post mba is something you truly consider, I think kellogg is a better option.

This would be good to find out from one of the current students. MBB recruiting is always tough as there are limited spots and I feel MBB is even tougher in Europe for MBA slots.
In the US, Kellogg would absolutely give you those opportunities but you would have to beat out all the other applicants. MBB has a diff number of slots provisioned for each program, so they have a target for HBS, Kellogg, etc. They do have on-campus recruiting at Kellogg for sure but they are not easy to get into since it is 25 slots for 500 people. You have to be the top 5% but they are on campus all the time, so very accessible. Many have offices where they have office hours and you can get a lot of facetime.
