The Kellogg Russell Fellows program is fairly new compared to some of the more established Masters in Management programs offered by top schools around the world. US schools (with the exception of Duke Fuqua) are just about waking up now to the possibilities of early career programs, including Master in Management equivalents, and early career MBA programs. The Kellogg Russell Fellows program, along with the Michigan Ross Master of Management, and the Duke MMS, are some of the best non-MBA master’s options for business education. This post looks at a brief overview of the Russell Fellows, and also highlights the success story of a GyanOne client – an Indian applicant who made it to the program in 2016.

Kellogg Russell Fellows – is it a great option?
While the number of MiM/early career MBA programs is consistently growing, the Kellogg Russell Fellows program (MSMS) stands out by dint of its brand value, placement rate (100% at 3 months, as reported by Kellogg), and course structure. The program is explicitly meant for students with a non-business background (indeed, students from a business undergraduate background are ineligible). Similarly, the program only accepts applications from college seniors in the final year of their undergraduate programs. The program initially had only 2 rounds of admission (with deadlines in October and February), which Kellogg increased to 3 this year (adding an April deadline as well).

The program itself features only the basics in business education, so it is meant for students who wish to make a career change to the business side, rather than those really looking for an MBA equivalent. However, the courses are supplemented through teaching by the outstanding Kellogg faculty, the Kellogg reputation, and Kellogg’s vaunted Global Initiatives in Management (GIM) program. At a relatively early stage of their career, Kellogg MSMS students will also need greater career support, and Kellogg ensures that through its personalized support structure.

Kellogg, too, recognizes that this program is not really a substitute for an MBA, and this is why it offers Russell Fellows the option to come back later (after working for a few years) for a one-year MBA from Kellogg. The Kellogg Russell Fellows MSMS is therefore ideal for someone who wishes to move to the business side of work, gain strong global exposure and a great brand on his/her resume, and then come back later for an MBA from a top school. For this reason, the MSMS does seem like a great option. READ MORE

Hi Himanshu

Thanks for posting.

Your profile is not eligible for the Kellogg MSMS program, as that program is meant only for students completing their undergraduate education in the same year in which they apply. Therefore, only students completing their bachelor's programs between May 2016 and June 2017 will be eligible for the next intake of the Kellogg Russell Fellows MSMS program.

To give you a general overview of your profile outside the context of this program, you do have some definite strengths, including the fact that you founded your own venture and are now successfully running it. On the other hand, you come from the highly competitive IT pool, so differentiating yourself with a strong test score will be very important.

While most MBA programs accept GRE scores as well as GMAT scores, your GRE score of 303 will be insufficient. Try and increase your GRE score to over 320 (325 if possible), or take the GMAT and get a score of 700 and above to be competitive. All the best!
