Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

As a first generation college graduate, I wanted to further my career and pursue an MBA. Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management is a top business school that allowed me the opportunity to excel professionally as well move back to the Midwest to be closer to my family. The Kellogg community is beyond talented, diverse, driven and cooperative. The faculty is top notch and is always willing to help outside of normal class hours. The location of Kellogg in Evanston is close enough to Chicago, yet small enough that you can easily feel part of the community. Growing up in a small town, the transition to Evanston has been wonderful and has helped to enhance my positive experience at Kellogg so far.

My graduate is an amazing, highly ranked, highly competitive program and I have nothing negative to say.

I am glad that I chose to attend Northwestern for graduate school. The workload is very heavy, but the instructors are more than willing to help with any issues or questions that you may have. The single downside of graduate school that comes to mind is the high cost of living here in Chicago.

Northwestern offers great programs. I like that the program is available online. The schedule accommodates my work hours. I am able to still travel for work without interrupting my schoolwork. I do wish they offered scholarships through the University. The financial aid process has been a setback for myself as well as other students.

Kellogg is a top 10 MBA program. Kellogg differentiates itself from its competitors due to its strong culture - students are highly inclusive and encompass the "pay it forward" attitude. The students are highly involved on campus because of the student run culture - all students are involved in at least 1-2 clubs. Kellogg does a great job providing students with career opportunities across the country. Kellogg is also a great place to attend to build both a social and professional network - students go on annual trips together to various countries and lead company visits throughout the year.
