Jump-Start Your Career with a Kellogg MBA

Kellogg Emerging Leaders is a new opportunity specifically for high-achieving young professionals with three years of experience or less. This offering allows motivated, rising stars to become Kellogg Emerging Leaders by giving them a chance to earn an MBA earlier in their careers while they continue to build upon their work experience.

In addition to several specialized benefits, students will be fully integrated into the Evening & Weekend MBA Program, meaning they benefit from the same rich academic experience, dedicated career coaching and outstandingly supportive global alumni network as all Kellogg MBAs.

Here's what you can look forward to as a Kellogg Emerging Leader:

  • Tailored leadership and career development to help you identify and develop your leadership style and best career path
  • Small-group career coaching sessions with some of the most seasoned coaches in the industry
  • An opportunity to be mentored by fellow Evening & Weekend MBA students from a diverse array of industries — financial services, consulting, technology, biotech and others
  • Lead and participate in program activities to forge bonds, stimulate growth and build memorable experiences

  • Three years or less of full-time work experience in a professional business environment*
