Kellogg School students featured by Chicago Bulls
Prior to the Chicago Bulls home game on Friday, November 8, students from the nation’s top two business schools - Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and University of Chicago Graduate School of Business – will entertain their classmates in a friendly basketball game on the United Center court. Over 900 students are expected to be on hand to witness the 7:00pm tip-off as well as the 7:30pm tip-off between the Bulls and the Dallas Mavericks.
The 10-minute game will feature 10-12 representatives from both schools and will be officiated by college basketball referees Rollie Madison and Chad Goode. The five-on-five full-court game will take place immediately before the Bulls and Mavericks teams take the court for the evening’s main event.
Earlier this year, Business Week ranked Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and University of Chicago Graduate School of Business first and second respectively among the nation’s graduate business institutions. The Kellogg School’s MBA program was recognized as the top in the world by The Economist Intelligence Unit and in October, 2002, The Economist placed both schools in a tie for first-place honors in its poll of polls survey.
