Weekend MBA Program

Saturday MBA, Weekend MBA Chicago campus

Earn your MBA on the weekends

Regardless of where you live, you can earn a Kellogg MBA. With its concentrated format, the weekend schedule is a great option for students commuting from across the country or local residents who prefer the convenience of weekend learning.

Weekend schedule benefits:

  • Classes are held every weekend on Saturdays.
  • All classes are held at Wieboldt Hall in downtown Chicago with convenient hotel options within a few blocks.
  • Spend a full day immersed in study and connected with your classmates.
  • Take evening classes as your schedule permits. Add Friday afternoon or Friday evening classes for additional flexibility in fast-tracking your degree.
  • Choose between a traditional pace and the Accelerated Option (bypass core courses to complete your degree faster).
