Kellogg students are actively involved in the nonprofit sector through the academic curriculum, student clubs and other engagement activities at Kellogg and Northwestern University. Experiential learning and pro bono project opportunities are woven into the curricular and student experience. In addition, there are several key resources for students pursuing careers in this important sector.
Kellogg Student Clubs and Activities
Kellogg School of Management prepares graduates for involvement in the nonprofit sector as senior staff and board members. Through a strong academic portfolio and wide range of co-curricular activities as well as numerous student clubs and activities, Kellogg offers students and alumni the opportunity to build a tool kit of skills to engage in important, impactful work in the nonprofit sector.
Nonprofit Management at Kellogg invites your investment in these activities:
Scholarships and financial assistance for nonprofit leaders to attend our executive education programs
Scholarship assistance is critical, because many of the nonprofit leaders who will benefit most from our executive education programs can least afford to attend. Their organizations have scarce resources that do not cover tuition costs.
Tuition assistance for participants in the Kellogg Executive Scholars Program
Aid is particularly important for participants in the Kellogg Executive Scholars program, which includes a general management component with a three to five day residential program expense. Gifts to Nonprofit Management at Kellogg allow us to extend our reach into the nonprofit community and ultimately benefit the organizations that come to us.
Outreach events designed to build networks of key nonprofit leaders around important issues facing the sector
One of our key initiatives is community outreach, fostering dialogue among nonprofit leaders on critical issues facing the sector. Nonprofit Management at Kellogg hosts outreach events annually and works closely with MBA students on conferences and other opportunities.
If your company or nonprofit has a nonprofit or social impact project, opportunity or independent study possibility, please submit your idea through Kellogg’s project portal.
