|Collaborative research is at the heart of the academic community at the Kellogg School of Management and Northwestern University. Research cannot be conducted in a vacuum; it needs to be nurtured and shared.
At Kellogg, we strongly believe in an interdisciplinary approach to PhD study. Our approach directly engages our students with the many disciplines found on Northwestern's campus including communication studies, economics, engineering, law, psychology, sociology and much more. Through engagement with these various disciplines, doctoral students expand the scope of their training. We believe that this approach helps magnify our students' insights and perspectives as they are exposed to new ideas and avenues of research.
Two research communities at Northwestern University that exemplify the cross-training that Kellogg doctoral students receive are in economic theory and social psychology. We hope you will consider joining our community of scholars.
Check out Professor Ehud Kalai speaking at the 2015 Nancy L. Schwartz Memorial Lecture from May 20, 2015 - "Chaos, Learning, and Stability in Big Games".
Also be sure to check out the lecture "Moving Up a Demand Curve: Dynamic Screening with Positive Selection," by Jean Tirole, the recipient of the 2014 Erwin Plein Nemmers Prize in Economics from April 2015. Between the awarding of the Nemmers Prize and his arrival on campus, Professor Tirole was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics on October 13, 2014 in recognition of his work on regulating large firms with market power. Seven of the eleven winners of the Nemmers Prize were subsequently honored as Nobel Laureates.
