Professor David Dranove talks about his work on physician report cards and the thriving research environment at Kellogg
The Kellogg faculty is a body of esteemed scholars and successful practitioners recognized for their insight
and and skill. In the classroom, they are dynamic educators. Outside the classroom, they are highly respected consultants for governments and corporations. They direct research centers
and literally write the books
on the subjects they teach. Kellogg faculty members are experts on business practice, markets and public policy
Our faculty members work closely with managers in large corporations, family businesses, startups, nonprofits and government entities, so they’re acutely aware of the challenges real organizations face. Through their teaching and other activities, they work with everyone from fast-tracking analysts and mid-level rising stars to senior officers and CEOs. As researchers, they stand at the intersection of theory and practice, and they share this unique perspective with our students. Kellogg faculty members are teachers
Kellogg faculty are distinctive in their ability to balance research and consulting with teaching. Our professors have a passion for sharing knowledge, and they truly enjoy challenging and engaging their students.
Each year students across the Full Time and Part Time MBA programs nominate several faculty members for the L.G. Lavengood Professor of the Year Award
. In 2007, there was the first-ever tie
Below are some reasons why Kellogg faculty are so successful in the classroom:
Kellogg faculty members are leading thinkers
- Each new faculty member attends orientation, is assigned a mentor and is trained on teaching techniques effective within the Kellogg learning environment.
- New faculty do not teach in their first quarter at Kellogg. Instead, they observe senior colleagues to become familiar with the Kellogg approach.
- Students evaluate every class. Results are posted publicly.
Research is a vital component of the Kellogg School's program. Our faculty have developed ground-breaking theories in all functional disciplines, including strategy, banking, negotiations, game theory and marketing. Kellogg research centers, drawing on the vast resources of Kellogg and Northwestern University, serve as a focal point for in-depth study of topics ranging from ethics to consumer behavior to strategy. Through research, faculty members remain at the forefront of knowledge and bring to the classroom the excitement that comes with new developments in their fields.
