Collaboration across academic and functional disciplines, cultures and borders is a cornerstone of the Kellogg School’s pedagogy.
Much of the work participants do in our programs is accomplished in small groups. Group exercises encourage participants not only to test new knowledge and practice new skills, but also to learn from their peers — an international assembly of professionals. More than a third of our executive education participants live and work outside North America, and each brings a wealth of personal and professional experience that benefits the whole group.
The classroom, too, is a diverse place. Around 25 percent of our faculty are from countries other than the United States, and though each has his or her own teaching style, all employ a combination of case studies, group work, intensive reflection and leadership training for experienced professionals. Since most courses seat 25 to 40 people, faculty engage — and learn from — participants on an individual level.
Participants live and learn in the James L. Allen Center, a lakefront facility designed especially for collaboration among executive students.
