I just want to update you about an exciting chat this week and a couple of MBA admissions chat transcripts that are now available.
- Linda Meehan, Columbia Business School’s Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid, and Lauren Sickle, CBS MBA ’08, will be our special guests at a chat this Wednesday Sept. 26 at 10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET/5:00 PM GMT. If you are interested in learning more about Columbia’s famed financial program, the advantages of studying in the heart of the Big Apple, Columbia’s ties to media and health care, or the preparation it provides to budding entrepreneurs, this is your chance. Come to the chat to learn more about Columbia, its admissions policies, and its student life.
- The transcript from our Kellogg chat with Beth Flye is now online. An excerpt:
Beth, Leigh and Justin, can each of you comment on the MMM program? Justin, I know you are in both programs.
The MMM program is a great addition to the typical Kellogg 2Y MBA. The program supplements the typical business school classes with additional classes in design, innovation and operations. I see it as having all of the benefits of a normal MBA plus additional engineering management and design benefits.

Linda, from my perspective the MMM program is a great program both to prepare students and attract employers to campus. The great thing is that the program prepares students to go into a variety of functions and industries – General Management programs at manufacturing companies, to investment banking, to consulting.
The MMM Program provides more of a foundation in product design the training in this area is through the course work that a student would complete at the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern. The MMM Program provides a great advantage to students since they will earn both the MBA and the MMM in 2 years.
