If i want to do marketing, should I commit (a kind of early decision program BCG has with Kellogg) to the Kellogg 1Y MBA or take a chance at Wharton or Harvard? I would be sponsored in either case.

D1 I think your insecurity is showing. I simply said that it's a program we have with them, and never implied that other companies didn't have such agreements. Simply wanted to weigh the commitment aspect vs the chance of H/W

like

D1 completely disagree. I got in to multiple m7 2 yr and chose the 1 y at kellogg. Much better ROI for sponsored candidates who don't want a 2 year vacation to drink

It's cute you think that's a special program only for BCG. Honestly assess your complete profile and decide if you have a legitimate chance at any of the other M7s. From what I have seen with Deloitte people going with the 1Y at Kellogg it's because it's their only real shot at an M7 and/or personal issues leading them to a 1Y program. I'd consider consulting an adcom on your chances of getting into an M7. Also, is there a reason you want or need to do a 1Y program over the traditional 2 years?

That's a really tough choice 🤔 think you'll be fine with any of those choices

like

@D2 we are in agreement... I said "or personal issues leading them to a 1Y program". You clearly fit into that categorization as you did not need a full 2 year program. @OP if you're returning to BCG or have other reasons for not wanting a 2Y program (family obligations, etc) then go to Kellogg, but if you need an internship to change careers or really want the 2 year vaca you should look at 2Y programs.

like

Well I guess the ROI will have to lie with you wanting to spend 2 years out of work/experience or not vs 2 years at a newish experience. Personally, if I knew I was coming back to BCG no matter what because of the sponsorship, I would just want to get in, get the degree for the checkbox, and then get out. However, if you're single and aren't in a rush, sit back and enjoy those 2 years.

Do you plan on leaving BCG at any point OP?

Kellogg!

Thanks everyone! For context, I fully plan on coming back to BCG post MBA, but don't think partner is in my plans

Harvard is better at marketing than Kellogg

@McK2, that's not true. Kellogg has been number 1 for almost three decades in marketing. Harvard doesn't even crack the top 5

One Porter doesn't make a summer.

Having gone to Harvard, and seen my SO go through Kellogg (both of us are marketing focused), I would disagree.

Kellogg is tops for marketing... if you dont care about the b-school experience, I would do that... if you do, aim for a 2y program.

Do two years!!

Two years at Kellogg...
