At Kellogg we strongly believe in an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach to PhD study that directly engages our students with the many programs found on Northwestern’s campus. To complement their study of the fundamental disciplines that underlie business research, our students attend classes in communication studies, economics, engineering, law, mathematics, statistics, political science, psychology, sociology, and much more. The richness and flexibility of the curriculum within this collegial environment encourages close working relationships with students and faculty across disciplines, who can bring a unique perspective to the students’ dissertation research. Northwestern is also a member of the Traveling Scholar Program, which enables students to take classes within the Big Ten consortium and the University of Chicago for credit.
Kellogg’s commanding global presence in management education enables us to bring leading academics and practitioners from around the world to campus to share insights on emerging global markets and to address universal, critical issues in finance, healthcare, real estate, private equity and venture capital, technology, manufacturing, marketing and social change. In a similar fashion, our business conferences offer rare insights into the work of noted scholars and the practical perspectives of some of the world’s most successful business leaders. Additionally, each academic department sponsors a weekly seminar series. Distinguished scholars share their most current research with the Northwestern community and provide opportunities for scholarly discourse.
