Northwestern offers great programs. I like that the program is available online. The schedule accommodates my work hours. I am able to still travel for work without interrupting my schoolwork. I do wish they offered scholarships through the University. The financial aid process has been a setback for myself as well as other students.

Kellogg is a top 10 MBA program. Kellogg differentiates itself from its competitors due to its strong culture - students are highly inclusive and encompass the "pay it forward" attitude. The students are highly involved on campus because of the student run culture - all students are involved in at least 1-2 clubs. Kellogg does a great job providing students with career opportunities across the country. Kellogg is also a great place to attend to build both a social and professional network - students go on annual trips together to various countries and lead company visits throughout the year.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe my graduate program would provide what I am seeking, training of technical background engineers to obtain business understanding and management skills. It's great to be learning among similar background and mindsets of students. When we exchange information, the bases are not that far apart. With the MEM degree, hopefully it will boost my career advancement as well as understanding in future business management.
