The Kellogg School’s Full-Time MBA program
occupies a six-story complex on Northwestern University’s Evanston campus. The Donald P. Jacobs Center is equipped with 17 classrooms, more than 50 group study rooms, conference rooms, quiet study areas and a student lounge. It is also home to the school’s administrative and faculty offices. The focal point of the building is the glass-topped Joseph and Carole Levy Atrium, where students gather to study, eat lunch and socialize.
Evanston, the first in a string of North Shore Chicago suburbs, stretches along four miles of Lake Michigan. A truly “urban suburb,” Evanston includes residential neighborhoods, parks, business districts, beaches and recreational facilities. The city is just a short train ride away from downtown Chicago.
Most Kellogg School students live in Evanston, which maintains thriving shops, restaurants, movie theaters and art galleries, while some commute to classes from nearby Chicago. Chicago’s public transit system is extensive and far-reaching, with many bus and train stops throughout both cities.
