I'm currently based in Chicago and am torn between doing one of the excellent part time programs here at Kellogg or Booth, or pursuing a full time time program through Cornell Tech or their AMBA program. I have a limitation that I cannot start a program before Fall 2018 due to immigration concerns. I've currently been working at a major market research firm for 8 years now, and have held a variety of roles, from analyst, sales, analytic manager, and a year long stint in India expanding our offshore center there from ~15 to 60 people.

I plan to switch career tracks into either consulting or tech, and am wondering what the best option would be.

My other stats:

* GPA: 3.7 engineering/econ minor at a Little Ivy, Magna cum laude
* GMAT 740 (IR is only a 4 though, took test in 2013)
* Significant managerial experience (currently manage 14 people, managed all 60 in India)
* Currently 29 years old

I turned down Anderson (would have been class of 2016) to take on the role in India, and am an Indian national.

Hi there,
I would suggest starting with your longer term goals/plans... and use that to drive your research and decisions. Look at employment reports, talk to students and staff, ask questions, etc at the various programs to see what seems to suit your goals more. In general, you'll find more people at PT programs who are staying at their company or at least know exactly what the next steps are or are making slightly less of a transition. Doesn't mean there aren't career or company changers in PT, but it's even more common in FT programs. The experience will be different-- all-encompassing in FT, more spread out and juggling your time and commitments for PT.... there are a lot of factors to consider!! Admissions-wise PT has higher acceptance rates... good luck and keep us posted!
