What to Do

Information Sessions
Our Information Session is a perfect event to introduce you to our MBA Programs. You'll have the opportunity to meet an Admissions Officer, ask questions specific to your needs and meet others who are interested in a Kellogg MBA. We offer sessions every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, from Sept. 29, 2014 – Dec. 12, 2014.

Please note, the Office of Admissions is closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. We will not be offering on-campus visits Dec. 15, 2014 - Jan. 5, 2015.

Lunch with Students
Have lunch with current Kellogg students and get a feel for what life at Kellogg is like inside and outside the classroom. Lunch will be provided by Kellogg. Please meet in the Office of Admissions at 12 p.m. on the day of a scheduled lunch.

Student-Hosted Tours
Want to visit the campus and meet a current student? Student-led tours let you experience the Kellogg community from an insider’s perspective. Tours depart from the Office of Admissions at 10:15 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. Tours typically last 30-45 minutes.

Class Visits
Get a first-hand feel for what it's like to be an MBA student at Kellogg by observing a class in session. As a guest in the class, you are asked to stay for the entire length of the class. Each class is 90 minutes. There is no prior registration required to attend a class and classes will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
