I recently got admired to both Booth and Kellogg EMBA programs. I’m debating which one to go to. My goal is to deepen my business strategy skills/acumen and also use the two years to cultivate tech entrepreneurship venture. I’ve read all the forums and such that Booth is for finance and Kellogg for marketing but wanted deeper insights into which is best for my goals. Any thoughts?

Hello - could you share some strategy for preparation

Preparation for what? Assuming you’re talking about Executive MBA programs, all schools will require essay(s), interview, recommendation letter (ideally from you direct manager(s)), and some require EA/GMAT (eg Kellogg doesn’t, Booth does). To study for EA buy the study books (Amazon or GMAC) and go through all of them and in particular do a lot of practice problems.

Where did you end up going?
