Hi everyone,

Can anybody tell me whether recruiters differentiate, in terms of package, between full time 2 years MBA and J-term MBA?

If you are going for J term, you probably should not be all too concerned about this to be honest. You should not need an internship, that is the #1 criteria for applying. It's really intended for sponsored candidates (like Bain associates going back after the end of the program as consultants), entrepreneurs, and family business peeps.

You graduate with your class and can take part in on-campus recruitment but keep in mind that many industries really require an internship such as investment banking or a summer associate position where you secure a full-time offer. If you are going into finance, internship. Startups, internship. Consulting, best off with an internship.

I mean, people do find they hate what they chose for their internship and re-recruit but that is not ideal and it's important to have the opportunity to explore your first choice before betting the farm on it. Recruitment takes a lot of time away from your classes, clubs, and networking; stuff that will be giving you long-term value from your MBA.

Side note: I firmly believe you should not have to pay $200K for on campus recruitment. Get all that sorted beforehand as much as possible; and it IS possible to do the bulk of it. Recruiters go to b-schools because that is where they find smart, vetted recruits for free and in large numbers. But you know where to find them right now.

So this all depends upon where you are headed; there is no specific distinction between J term and August intake people but there might be some questions about why you chose J term if you are recruiting for a new industry.

If you don't belong in one of the three types of groups described above, and especially if you are a career switcher, would not encourage you to apply. You might instead look at some of the European Jan batch schools like INSEAD, HEC, IMD, IE or RSM if you are looking to submit additional applications, would recommend you make sure to hit R2 for INSEAD and IMD and by April for HEC (rolling, but earlier the better.)

If you are looking to go into finance, which is often a reason people apply to CBS, you would do far better at this point to apply to January term for INSEAD or HEC so you can do an internship. Otherwise, wait to apply in the fall.

Hi coolrahul,

As MBAPrepCoach rightly said, J-term is mostly for people who do not require summer internships and are planning to return to their previous employer/ Family business. That being said, I have spoken to a few people who have secured a full time job with top consulting/ tech firms after J-term but note that it is a bit more difficult to do so as you are competing with people who did have an opportunity to do summer internship. For finance, particularly IB it is extremely difficult as they do prefer to hire students who have interned with them before. If you are planning to recruit after your MBA it will be beneficial for you to apply for the September intake.

Hope this helps. All the best!
