The true test of business theory and MBA coursework is: Will this work in the real world
? At the Kellogg School, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to apply classroom lessons to real-life business challenges.
In the classroom, you might examine today’s subprime lending crisis and discuss how it could have been prevented. You might work with a team of classmates to develop a new automotive technology and determine whether or not it’s viable. You might manage and invest part of the school’s endowment. Or you might solve a real company’s problems as a consultant for a local business or nonprofit.
Beyond the classroom, Kellogg students participate in a number of business case competitions — and often win. Annual conferences provide an excellent opportunity for students to hone leadership and management skills. Your philanthropic interests are supported by student organizations that offer options to partner with Evanston, Chicago, and national communities. Further afield, our Global Health Initiative and Kellogg Corps invite you to contribute to the world through work designed to benefit underserved communities.
Experiential learning is a key place for corporate involvement
as it allows company and nonprofit organizations to develop and enhance relationships with Kellogg faculty and students. These partners play an important role in student education and opportunity by providing expertise and support of student projects, case development, guest lectures, recruiting, and student activities such as clubs and conferences.
