Majors & Pathways

Majors and Pathways

Build your expertise with guidance and flexibility

Kellogg’s approach to majors gives our students the flexibility and guidance they need to carve out a unique intellectual experience that is relevant to their specific educational and career goals.

You may choose from seven majors or none at all. Majors include:

  1. Accounting
  2. Economics
  3. Finance
  4. Managing Organizations
  5. Marketing
  6. Operations
  7. Strategy


In addition to majors, Kellogg provides “pathways” to our students who are interested in building expertise in emerging areas and evolving industries.

A pathway is an integrated, cross-functional sequence of courses designed to address a particular skill set or industry for which there is active student and recruiter demand. You have the flexibility to pursue any number of pathways and go as deep as you’d like into each one. Pathways are not noted on transcripts.

Review pathways for:

  1. Asset Management
  2. Data Analytics
  3. Entrepreneurship
  4. Growth and Scaling
  5. Healthcare at Kellogg
  6. Real Estate
  7. Social Impact 
  8. Technology Management
  9. Venture Capital and Private Equity

The majors policy applies to Kellogg students who began studies during or after Summer 2015.
