Established in 1908, the Kellogg School of Management is a private management school located at Evanston, Illinois in United States. The Kellogg School is the business School of Northwestern University.
The school was rechristened as J. L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management in 1979 to honor a huge donation of $10million made in honor of John L. Kellogg. Later, in the year 2001 school management decided to shorten its name to just Kellogg School of Management with the aim of giving a boost to its brand.
It would be apt to say that the Kellogg School has played a pioneering role in the growth of business management education across the world. The school which was originally conceptualized as a part-time evening program today offers an array of business management courses from its three campuses in Evanston, Illinois, downtown Chicago, Illinois and Miami, Florida.
As of today, the Kellogg School trains around1162 students in business management courses like full-time MBA, part-time MBA, JD-MBA, MMM and executive MBA. In JD-MBA course students earn dual degree of Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) in three years as against four years elsewhere.
At the same time, MMM too is a dual degree program offering MBA and Master of Engineering Management (MEM). In the case of executive MBA programs, the Kellogg School offers these not only on its own, but also in collaboration with premier management institutes in countries like Canada, Israel, Germany and Hongkong.
EMBA programs of the school have been ranked number one consistently for a long time. The Kellogg School has always found itself in the top ranking business schools across the world. One of the major drivers behind it is the quality of faculty. It is because of its faculty that the school has been able to pioneer the concepts of ‘team work’, ‘team leadership’, ‘group projects and evaluations’ and many others.
The faculty count of the school stands at 146. All of these factors have helped a lot in creating a 50,000 strong alumni base in all these years. It is very usual to see alumni of the school at leading positions in the fields of professional services, financial services, technology, consumer goods, retail, health care and biotechnology, media, entertainment and information services, industry, government and non-profit and what not. This in itself tells the standard of excellence that the Kellogg institute of Management instills in its students.
