Full-Time Exchange Programs

Study Abroad on Six Continents

Learn about business from a different perspective, experience another culture and network with others from around the world at our exchange partner schools.

Kellogg has one of the largest exchange programs, with nearly 80 Full-Time MBA students electing to study abroad each year in cities ranging from Beijing to Buenos Aires. Through our 25 partner schools, our exchange program offers you the opportunity to learn in-depth about business from a different cultural perspective, immerse yourself in a culture outside of the U.S. and broaden your network significantly.

Students who participate in exchange are uniquely positioned to explore global leadership opportunities. Whether providing consulting services for a small, family-run business in South Africa, studying luxury retail marketing in France, or taking finance courses in London or Hong Kong, the student exchange experience is intended to build on Kellogg’s global experience and provide you with an immersion that adds value to your time at Kellogg.

Exchange Experience at Kellogg: Student Clubs

An exchange student from ESSEC Business School writes about cultural immersion at a new school.

During a school trip to local townships (historically segregated and underserved urban areas), I was able to understand the social, political and economic factors that shape the everyday life of an average Capetonian — a perspective I would not have been able to glean from a classroom lecture.

The International Exchange Program at Kellogg was started in 1980 with a vision to promote a cultural interchange of ideas and provide a greater understanding of cross-cultural trade and business practices. Since that time, more than 2,000 Kellogg students have participated in the Exchange Program. The local student body and academic culture at each of the schools with which Kellogg maintains an exchange program represents a unique approach to solving problems.
