Definitely a Value for $$$$


This review is for Kelley

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2018

Experience during the program

Background in Market Research and Consulting, India - Wanted to take a jump from the analyst to the consultant level, Global opportunities
- The first 6 months are hell - will give you a lot of opportunities to interact with different people and express yourself. Totally upto you to take a dive and interact with new people or find a bunch of students from your native country and stick with them (Erodes the value of the MBA experience)

Program is too hectic the first few months and the career services even though ranked well does not do a great job in finding ample opportunities for international students. You will have multiple offers if you donot have any visa issues.

The location is big hindrance for tech and consulting firms - Mid west and Bloomington so you have to take the pains of networking well and early on to get the internship offer you were looking for. I have heard full time recruiting is comparatively easier. A very strong and spread out alumni network so you should not have a problem finding the right contact.

I got an internship of my choice and did not have to put in much efforts for recruiting but it otherwise is a bit difficult if you are career switcher especially from tech.

Applicants - Not an easy ride. You will have to network well for the right offer but you will get a chance be it MBB or Airbnb. Know the students and the school before your interview.
