Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I think Kellogg is a great school with a challenging curriculum. It also has a great social aspect and network that are very supportive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Going to class in the evenings after work is rough, but its always energizing to be engaged in lectures with other students that genuinely want to be there and have a lot of great insight to share. Most of the professors are wonderful both academically and personally. It is truly a great environment to be in! My only large con is that racial diversity needs to be improved.

My graduate program is amazing at developing real analytics professionals. If you keep up with the course work, you'll walk out with real skills that you can use to develop your career.

This is a new program, and is still developing. However, the professors are very good, and the curriculum is new and relevant.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

Northwestern is a great university; it has a fantastic library, top of the range faculty and the learning environment is generally good. However, Campus transportation especially on weekends is not as smooth as it relies on the Chicago city transportation only. NU buses do not operate on weekends. Given that Evanston is expensive to live in, a number of grad students live in Chicago which makes it necessary to have affordable and reliable transportation to and from campus throughout the week.

EDI provides a very unique design education in that it targets individuals specifically with a technical background but teaches the design process that can be applied to any industry.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2019

Northwestern is a highly competitive school, the PhD program in Mathematics is challenging and intense but a unique chance for a successful career in academia.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at NW Law, but would like to see more ethnic diversity in students and more so in faculty.
