More of a rant than a question as this topic has been address already but I wouldnt mind having Booth people to give their perspective. I have confirmation bias going on as well. If you are a PT and disagree then it will only serve to strengthen my belief (sorry).
My statements rests on the following assumptions. They draw from overall impressions after spending about 3 hours going through all possible key words on Google to identify forum posts that have a similar topic. Reading them as well of course. I would love agreement or disagreement with the assumptions to have a more robust understanding.
1. PT MBA is less selective therefore lower quality people. By quality I mean if you take a random sample and put their CV in front of MBB or BB it would be not looked at. Of course we are allowing for exceptions. There have even been ideas out there that say FT Top 20 MBA >> PT Booth.
2. A good group of the PT MBA people have a great fit with PT (going back to old employer) while there is this large minority who see the PT Booth MBA as a backdoor entry to get the benefits of the FT MBA (except internship) without needing to work that hard ever in their pre MBA lives.
3. It is logical to be pissed that Booth allows PT to eventually access OCR resources during their full time search. I value exclusivity and prestige as my $$$ and 2 years will exclusively go to Booth.
4. It is logical to be pissed at Booth as they give them the same "MBA Booth" title end of the day and future recruiters, perhaps not those on campus, but future recruiters, will not see the difference. I WANT them to see the difference. Why not just call it Master in Management or even better just require graduates to put Part-Time MBA.
