The Experts Rate The Odds At: 35%

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    From the looks of your profile, you make a solid candidate for Kellogg’s accelerated MBA program. This program, of course, is best for people who don’t necessarily want to be career switchers. That does seem like you, though you clearly want to switch out of auditing and into corporate finance, a very doable goal with the one-year Kellogg MBA. Your stats are in line, particularly for the one-year option. And the two years you played sports at a division one school is a real plus, particularly if it was a team sport. Kellogg is a little more flexible on stats in this program because the school only reports two-year MBA stats to U.S. News for its ranking.
