Bloomberg Businessweek's Jeniece Pettitt and Rachel Crane visit Northwestern University to check out what makes Kellogg unique.

About Kellogg School of Management

The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University is a premier institution for management education. Founded in 1908 and based just outside of Chicago, Kellogg is home to a renowned, research-based faculty and the best and brightest MBA students from around the world. Global business education is different today because of the teamwork and collaboration models that Kellogg pioneered 40 years ago. And, in the 21st century, Kellogg is truly a different voice in management education: We believe business can be bravely led, passionately collaborative and world changing. The Kellogg School’s academic portfolio includes the Full-Time, Part-Time and Executive MBA Programs, the Ph.D. Program, and the non-degree Executive Education Program. The school offers two joint-degree programs: the JD-MBA and the MMM (MBA-MEM). Additionally, the Kellogg School offers an Executive MBA Program in Miami and has alliances with business schools in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Canada.

We received the highest/top rated faculty at Kellogg to teach us. The residential facilities (rooms, food, snacks, bar, etc.) were outstanding. Excellent choice of electives and a wide range of subjects within the core/advanced curriculum.
