When I read Social Entrepreneurship and Marketing, I immediately think Kellogg and Yale SOM.


One thing to note is that a regular MBA is 2 years, though there are some 1-year options. Other than that, it would be useful for us to know your targeted location(s) for both MBA and internship/post-MBA job, and other elements of your profile. Hi, Please share the list of B-Schools and <15 months r...

I think if the recommendation asks specifically for 3 (as Kellogg's does), then your recommendation should address 3. They wouldn't have specified the number otherwise. Hi! I wanted to know if it would look bad that my recommender only addresses 1 weakness when the question asks for 3. My former bos...

Hi smock, As far as I can tell it's not live yet. Like you, I find this quite strange given the deadline is next month. At least the essay prompts are out and we can prepare for that. Hello, I've been looking at the MIT Sloan Website and it seems like the applications for entry into 2014 are not yet...

Hi Mikhail, I'm not sure about CCO positions in tech companies specifically, but Canada does have some good MBA programs. You may want to consider looking at Rotman (U of Toronto), Ivey (U of Western Ontario), Desautels (McGill), Sauder (U of British Columbia), Schulich (York), and others. Definitel...

GMAT Verbal for non-native speakers

Hi BtG Community, As a native speaker, I did not have much problem with the Verbal section. I have a few non-native speakers who approached me for advice on tackling the Verbal portion. For a lot of things, I was struggling to explain to them why I chose the answer choices I did. For me, it "just wa...

Every situation is different, and you will definitely need to gauge for yourself the sensitivities of your individual situation. In my case, my two direct supervisors were in the loop from the time I requested them to write recommendation letters. Now that they know I've been accepted, and will be m...


Hi Cheese12,

Firstly, congratulations! As essaysnark pointed out, both are good schools.

I would say that answer depends on your goals and which school is better equipped to help you achieve those goals. Would you mind sharing your profile, career goals etc.?

Best of luck!

Typically, adcoms will consider serial job-hoppers as folks unable to settle down. However, if your movement can be explained vis-a-vis career goals, advancement, raises etc., I don't think it's really that bad. Just be honest about why you switched positions. Though, less than 2 years at a position...

Hi chzd, First and foremost: no, high school is too long ago to be relevant unless you were an Olympic athlete or something. Try to focus on the most recent achievements, but since you have less than the average years of experience, undergrad should be okay as well. It would be hard to evaluate whet...

Hi amrendra, I would look at this in two aspects: 1. Which school do you see yourself fitting in the most? This means peers, social/professional clubs, alumni, learning format and so on. 2. Which school would be better for you to achieve your goals, given your experience. The best way to find this o...

Where do you want to work post-MBA? The US, India, elsewhere? I think you should look at the employment statistics and other facilities that each university may offer that is relevant to your career, such as an Operations Club. Personally, given the choice, I would go to BU. 80k scholarship is immen...


First, congratulations for getting into BU with an awesome scholarship package. BUT for any of us to comment on a BU vs. ISB-H comparison, we would need to know your profile and post-MBA goals. I got confirmation from Boston University School of management MBA with 80k USD scholarship.So my tuition ...


Your employer is the company paying your salary. I'm sure adcoms are familiar with situations like yours whereby you're hired by Firm A but the nature of the work puts you on-site at Client X.
