By Tracy Xu I recently had the pleasure of competing as part of the 6 Degrees team in the Kellogg Education Technology Incubator (KETI) competition. KETI gave our team (made up of myself, Edward Kuk ’17, Abhishek Nag ’17 and two developer friends David Wen and Aditya Bhalla) the unique opportunity to gain support from… Continue reading

The event is always a highlight of the year as it allows Kellogg students, faculty and alumni the opportunity to come together and volunteer in the Evanston and Chicago community. This year, I had the great pleasure of… Continue reading
Tim Bossidy’s passion for finance is what brought him to Kellogg, where he is a second-year student. He felt the school’s curriculum, personalized career support and collaborative community would set him apart as he pursued a career in investment banking. This past summer, Tim was one of four Kellogg students who interned at Goldman Sachs. All… Continue reading
As fall quarter approaches its end, Kellogg students are excited to take a few days off and jump into Thanksgiving break with family, friends, and of course, good food. In the spirit of giving thanks, we asked students to answer the following questions: What are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving season, and more specifically, what are you most thankful for in terms of your Kellogg experience?
When many students imagine their legacy as a class, typically their thoughts are straightforward: Give to the class fund, work hard, improve the program, be remembered in a positive light. But EMP 100, the centennial cohort of the Executive MBA Program, wanted to ensure its legacy is much more impactful and long lasting. The EMP… Continue reading
Going back to school in my 30s wasn’t something I originally planned.
I studied business as an undergraduate and switched into an enjoyable consulting career after earning my master’s degree in industrial and labor relations. Yet my dad always told me that “your education is something that can never be taken away from you.” After some reflection on his advice and some prodding from a partner at my firm, I decided an MBA would be a great addition to my resume.
Given my education and experience, I only considered accelerated one-year programs. Kellogg’s 1Y program clearly emerged as the program for me thanks to my interactions with students and alums and my experience at Day at Kellogg (DAK).
As a 1Y, I recognized that time would be precious, and I wanted to ensure I maximized my time in Evanston. After giving some thought to how I would use my time in school, I landed upon a few guidelines to help shape my experience:
It was in late 2012 when Sanil (my husband) was accepted to Kellogg’s full-time program. We were overjoyed that his hard work had paid off and his dream to achieve a master’s degree from one of the world’s best business school appeared more of a reality. Secretly, I was apprehensive to undertake the ordeal of a student life with two little kids.
Despite all hesitation, he accepted the offer, and before we knew it we were on a flight to Evanston from Abu Dhabi.
I graduated from Kellogg’s One-Year Full-Time program in June, and having been in the work world for six months, I look back and can honestly say choosing Kellogg and the 1Y program was the best decision I’ve ever made.
Kellogg was the ultimate life experience.
This year I had the great opportunity to organize Kellogg Cares Day, a one-day community service event for Kellogg students, faculty and staff. This was the 10th year the Kellogg community came together to help out the surrounding Evanston and Chicago area, and it proved to be a truly valuable experience.
