The Allen Center

The James L. Allen Center

Located on the western shores of Lake Michigan in the heart of Northwestern University's Evanston campus, the James L. Allen Center is the home of Kellogg Executive Education. Designed and managed exclusively to support the school's degree and non-degree executive programs, the Allen Center hosts more than 6000 executives annually to one or more of the School's 160 executive programs.

Because learning should not be confined to the classroom, the Allen Center is designed to facilitate peer learning and informal interactions among faculty and participants. It is completely self-contained with classrooms of all shapes and sizes, fully equipped study-group rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, lounge areas, snack rooms, laundry service and an exercise room. Students have 24-hour access to two participant resource areas with computers, printers, copiers and office supplies, and our classrooms and study group rooms feature both wireless and wired Internet connections and power outlets for laptops. All 150 bedrooms are equipped with Internet connections and voice mail.

The Allen Center's front desk is staffed 24 hours a day and provides a wide variety of services including restaurant and event recommendations, transportation arrangements, and FedEx services. At the Kellogg Knowledge Emporium, participants can purchase faculty books, other publications, and an extensive assortment of Kellogg School merchandise.

Kellogg School Executive Education participants also have guest privileges at Northwestern University libraries and sports facilities and quick access to the bustling cities of Evanston and Chicago.

Please note: Occasionally, demand for programs requires that participants stay at a nearby hotel. If this is necessary, arrangements (including daily transportation between the hotel and the Allen Center) will be made for you. It is expected that participants have their own health insurance that is valid in the United States. The University is not responsible for medical expenses incurred by participants during the program.
