Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Management

The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University develops brave leaders who inspire growth in people, organizations and markets. Based just outside of Chicago, the school is a global leader in management education, renowned for its distinctive thought leadership and pioneering approach to learning. The School offers an innovative portfolio of programs: five Full-Time MBA programs including the accelerated One-Year MBA and Two-Year MBA options, and joint degree programs with the engineering, medical and law schools; an Evening & Weekend Program; the Executive MBA global network; a Master of Science in Management Studies; and extensive non-degree Executive Education programs. In recent years Kellogg created four new strategic initiatives — Markets and Customers, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Architectures of Collaboration and Public-Private Interface — that cut across academic departments and offer a platform for addressing emerging business problems in novel ways. The School is ranked number four by U.S. News and has made significant progress on a bold seven-year plan focused on strengthening its innovative degree portfolio, investing in path-breaking thought leadership, deepening global connectivity, and leveraging Kellogg's distinctive culture and brand. A transformative piece of the plan was the construction of a 415,000-square-foot lakefront Global Hub that opened in March 2017. Kellogg is led by Sally Blount, the Michael L. Nemmers Professor of Management & Organizations and Dean. Previously, Blount was dean at New York University's Stern School of Business. She is a proud alumna of Kellogg, where she received her Ph.D. in management and organizations in 1992.
