The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University is recognized globally as a pioneer in general management education that offers innovative academic opportunities for today’s leading thinkers in both its MBA and Executive Education offerings. Its world renowned research based faculty creates new knowledge and solutions, bringing a visionary, multi-disciplinary perspective to real-world business challenges. At the Kellogg School innovation and thought leadership shape strategy while team leadership powers performance. The Kellogg School revolutionized graduate management education more than 50 years ago when it introduced executive education into its programming, one of the first business schools to do so. In the 1970’s and 80’s, Kellogg again changed the face of business education when it introduced a culture of cooperation, listening and learning into all of its programs. It is this unique culture of collaborative learning and co-creation of knowledge that defines Kellogg from all other schools.
