To get the maximum return on your MBA, you need a program that’s tailored to you.

At Kellogg, your academic experience is fully customizable. Once you’ve completed your core courses, you have the flexibility to select classes that best support your ambitions and interests.


Our curriculum is designed to complement your academic background, work experience and career objectives.

Next, you’ll dive into advanced studies, taking electives that best align with your career goals and personal interests.
