Our team understands how demanding work can be, but pursuing interests outside the office helps maintain a balanced and engaged life.

PREVIOUS TOPICS: Intellectual ability, Work experience, Professional goals

The Kellogg admissions team is looking for both demonstrated leadership in the past and an applicant’s leadership potential. Given the scope and range of our community, this means many different things. Someone with a military background will present different accomplishments than someone with a few years as a junior analyst, or a teacher. What showcases your leadership is going to depend on the path you’ve had and the organizations that you’ve been in, and we take that into account.
