Customize your MBA to meet your career goals

Kellogg's approach to majors and pathways gives our students the flexibility and guidance they need to create an academic experience that fits their career goals.

As a Evening & Weekend MBA student, you'll start with courses in general management that provide a solid business foundation. Next, select from higher level electives that speak to your career & personal goals.

Kellogg does not require students to select a major.

Instead, students have the ability to customize their own intellectual journey through our optional majors and pathways. Majors offer a structured approach to understanding a specific discipline.
