Hi All,

How do you choose among these schools?

A little about myself -

Currently working in health consulting in a boutique consulting firm in the US. Looking to move into management consulting (MBB) post MBA (want to end up working in Europe/US, not Asia)


I have limited European language abilities/knowledge (except French that I am planning to improve further on if I do end up picking INSEAD). Kellogg results are not out yet (due 13th Dec) and I might not even get selected at Kellogg, but considering INSEAD wants the deposit by 1st week of January, I want to already start thinking about what i will choose.
Given the current situation in Europe and my 'limited' language abilities, I am very concerned about finding a spot in Europe in a management consulting firm (UK will be even more difficult with INSEAD due to Brexit). What do you think?

Thank you for your help! :-)

Well you can wait it out and see until you get the results, or just take a risk on your deposit if that doesn't work out. Don't worry about INSEAD. It's a very global and pan-European program and they place out of France lots. (no one will offer you the French consulting position without French, so don'y worry :) ).

Best,

Kellogg feels like the safe decision as it is arguably the top consulting program in the U.S with good placement abroad. INSEAD as stated above can get you placed anywhere in Europe where your language skills are a fit. The value with Kellogg comes in the internship which would give you two cracks at a FT job offer via the summer internship, which has me leaning that way
