To help new PhD students acclimate themselves to the Kellogg-Northwestern academic community, there are a few orientation programs scheduled in September 2013,
New PhD Student Orientation and PhD Tech Camp – Monday, September 16, 2013
The program begins with lunch at the Allen Center, at 12:30p.m., and then the orientation program follows (tentatively scheduled in room 153, Allen Center).
introduction to the Kellogg School of Management Management will be provided – the course of study for PhD students and the resources and support services available to them. The program will outline the research and academic communities, computing/research resources (databases and subscription services, scientific software, and behavioral laboratories/subject pools), and student support services found at Kellogg and Northwestern. Additionally, there will be tips/advice on how to manage your workload and to meet program requirements on a timely basis. There will be opportunities for questions as students look ahead to registration and the academic milestones to be achieved each year. The agenda will be available this summer.
