Educational Mission

"A SIGNIFICANT CORNERSTONE OF KELLOGG'S DISTINCTIVE EXPERIENCE IS A CULTURE BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF CO-CREATION AND PARTNERSHIP. THAT SPIRIT CARRIES ON WITH OUR ALUMNI, WHO READILY SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS."

Elizabeth "Betsy" Ziegler
Associate Dean of MBA Programs and Dean of Students

Cutting-Edge Curriculum

We will align our curriculum with the new fundamentals needed by leaders to excel in the 21st century marketplace: building intense customer and end-user focus; deep collaboration skills, agility and resilience; and public statesmanship.

Dynamic Degree Portfolio

To provide a superior educational experience to our students, we are rebalancing our portfolio of degree offerings in order to be flexible to market demands. Among the highlights: expanding our One-Year MBA Program to meet growing market demand; enhancing our MMM Program; and introducing the Russell Fellows Program, a Master of Science in Management Studies program designed to provide recent Northwestern graduates with a grounding in core business skills.

Integrated Technology Agenda 

To optimize the classroom educational experience, we will balance the best of technology with the enduring power that only face-to-face learning can provide.


The Best and the Brightest 

We are expanding our student scholarship program to enable us to attract and engage high-potential, diverse leaders from around the world. To be the global go-to institution for business education, we must attract the best and brightest talent.
