After three years in consulting, I wanted to take a step back and focus on leadership development and personal growth, build a strong network, and take a holistic approach to my future career. The 1Y program is a perfect match because it helps accelerate my career progress.
Kellogg has truly exceptional and well-rounded course offerings in all majors. With limited core course requirements, the 1Y program provides students with full flexibility to choose based on personal interests and career development. I’ve taken courses mainly in finance, marketing, and healthcare management.
1Ys have full exposure to all students in the Kellogg community. We’ve taken classes, attended club events, and organized business conference together with 2Ys and Part-Time students. It has helped me build a wide network with life-long friendships.
I was truly surprised by the diversity of opportunities that Kellogg offers to develop leadership skills. You can serve on the board of a high-profile local nonprofit organization or help organize a trip to Africa to support a local AIDS program. You can meet world-renowned experts who come to campus to speak. You can actually manage a multimillion dollar portfolio in the Asset Management Practicum. Every opportunity you take adds value and color to your Kellogg experience.
