Limited Number of Seats available for selected MBA students from business schools affected by Hurricane Katrina
9/1/2005 - The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University will offer a limited number of seats for the fall term to MBA students who are registered at business schools affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Accepted students, who will have "visiting graduate MBA student" status at the Kellogg School, will have the opportunity to continue their studies and broaden their networking base while their home schools recover from the hurricane. Course credits and tuition will be applied to the students' home school.
Students who are interested in applying will need to submit their GMAT score and undergraduate transcripts. Those students who are in their second year must also submit first year business school transcripts. Contact information will also be needed. Candidates must be registered with their home institution in order to be a visiting student.
Students may apply to register as a visiting graduate MBA student for fall quarter only. Interested students should contact Kathrine Mott in the Kellogg School Office of Admissions at 847.467.3460.
The deadline to apply to be a visiting graduate MBA student is Monday, September 12, at 5:00 pm CDT.
The Kellogg School of Management will also accept a limited number of PhD students, and those who are interested should contact Simon Greenwold at 847.467.1829.
Faculty members of hurricane-affected universities interested in visiting the Kellogg School fall quarter will also be available on a limited basis and should contact Debbie Brauer at 847.491.3755.
Evening classes begin on September 21, and day classes begin on September 22.
Fall tuition must be paid at the student's home institution for registration at the Kellogg School of Management, and Kellogg will not charge any additional tuition fees. The number of courses a visiting student will be able to enroll in will depend on seating availability; students must meet prerequisites for specific courses.
Limited on and off campus housing is available, and the Office of Student Affairs can help students find suitable accommodations. Students will be responsible for their own room and board costs.
