Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Kellogg MBA has been tremendously beneficial for my career. Shortly after completing the degree, I was able to transition into a new industry that I had intended to prior to enrolling, and also attained a 105% pay increase over my pre-MBA pay. The networking opportunities were incredibly valuable, and I will have lifelong friends as a result.

Extremely excited to attend University of Northwestern. The campus and facilities are best in class. Its a wonderful place to pursue an MBA. The faculty and students all collaborate and challenge each other to solve real world business problems. If you have the chance please look at pursuing an MBA from Kellogg. It will be the best decision you make
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Informatics
Graduation Year: 2017

Northwestern University - School of Professional Studies offers the rigorous coursework and experience needed to complete a degree in Health Informatics or any subject matter while pursuing a professional career. I was able to continue full time employment as an electrical engineer while completing my masters in health informatics. The advisors and administrators are very passionate and always willing to listen and help. What makes the experience grand are the students and your peers. The collaboration and diversity of classmates from all around the world was amazing to experience. If all goes well, I'll be back for my MBA. Go WildCats!

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

I liked my college because my peers were all very intelligent and highly motivated. The culture inspired a word hard, play hard mentality compared to a lot of other schools. The school was a good size and the individuals who attended and taught were diverse but still relatable. The academics are really competitive and there are several interesting classes offered. There were a lot of extracurricular activities with friendly, proactive students who shared similar interests.

Academically challenging, yet rewarding. Experientially immersive, providing unique learning opportunities. Faculty and staff are invested in their student's learning; very encouraging and supportive
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

Northwestern University in Evanston, IL is where I attended undergrad. I was a student-athlete there as well. What I found most difficult, but also awarding, is the time-management skills I acquired. Northwestern's structure is set to be fast-paced, so learning at a fast-pace is necessary. On top of the rigors of the academic lifestyle, I had a a full-time football agenda to attend, while also being involved in on-campus extra-curricular activities. Though challenging to say the least, the University offered many avenues of support professionally, athletically, and socially for the students to feel and believe they could succeed.
