The Kellogg Advantage
Over the past 60 years, the Kellogg School has prepared generations of experienced managers for greater leadership responsibilities and helped hundreds of organizations transform their strategies and operations. During that time, we’ve honed a unique educational philosophy and approach to executive learning. These are some of our core principles.
Learning is a process, not a single event. Participants are encouraged to arrive at a program with specific issues they want resolved so their experience in the program can be shaped to help them achieve these goals. But they don’t stop learning when class is dismissed. On return to the workplace, they schedule follow-up meetings with colleagues and advisers to pass on what they’ve learned, implement plans for organizational change and anticipate new challenges before they arise.
Peer learning does not occur by accident. Participants in an executive education program
can learn as much from each other as they will from the faculty. At Kellogg, we strive for both structured and informal peer learning opportunities — workshops, participant lectures, study groups, topic tables at meals, exercises and simulations, to name just a few. We also work to ensure that the people attending our courses are of comparable managerial and experience levels.
A collaborative learning environment requires a collaborative faculty and staff team. Led by an academic director and program manager, each Kellogg executive program is taught by a select group of senior faculty. Because faculty members constantly teach with each other, they and the academic director pay great attention to demonstrating how the different topics in the program build on and relate to one another. Our goal is to take you on an exciting and practical intellectual journey, where you always know why we’re teaching what we are teaching and how it relates to the other lessons in the program.
A carefully designed and orchestrated environment will maximize the potential for learning. The James L. Allen Center
, our facility exclusively designed and managed for executive education, creates a very special environment for learning. It is a completely self-contained facility that incorporates all living and learning spaces and services.
