Thank you for your interest in the Kellogg School of Management. My name is Beth Tidmarsh, and I am Director of Admissions for Kellogg’s Full-Time MBA programs.
I am excited to tell you that our 2014-2015 application questions are now posted online. Please find the questions below:
When I arrived at Kellogg, I was given a notebook and stacks of papers. I had never owned a tablet but I felt like if I were to become a leader in digital innovation, I needed to try to do things digitally at Kellogg. I bought an iPad and looked all over for the right apps that would allow me to accomplish my schoolwork digitally. Soon I found a small group of students, led by Sam Sung ’13, that was piloting tablets at Kellogg.
One of the common complaints was that there was no good app for taking notes. I realized this was a consumer need, so I enrolled in NUvention: Web and led a team in developing Chisel, an iPad app that allows users to type, draw and annotate from within one app. Within three days of launching Chisel, we had 1,000 downloads. We now have users from 28 countries.
Last month’s Kellogg graduation ceremony marked a milestone for me as assistant dean: the first class of two-year students I admitted completed their studies and are going out into the world. I know what they’re feeling — as a Kellogg alum myself, I remember how much I grew and developed during my time in the program, both personally and professionally. In the 15 years since, over and over again I’ve seen firsthand the value of the Kellogg degree. It opens doors to new and incomparable opportunities.
Kellogg School of Management was awarded second place as well as Gold Status in the Friendfactor MBA Ally Challenge this week. The challenge, which took place over the course of the 2013-2014 school year, measured the success of each participating school in creating ally initiatives and an inclusive environment for LGBT students.
In addition to winning second place overall, Kellogg placed first in the inclusion score and activities categories and was one of only three schools to receive Gold Status.

Following Kellogg Convocation 2014, Kellogg Professor Tim Calkins offers four pieces of financial advice for new grads.
Originally posted on Building Strong Brands:
Today is Kellogg’s commencement ceremony. Hundreds of students will shortly walk across the stage and receive their degrees. I’m here at Ryan Field in Evanston getting ready to march in with the faculty.
The graduates will then celebrate. And in the coming weeks they will begin their careers as business leaders.
It is a time for advice. During today’s ceremony, I suspect the speakers will offer suggestions on leadership, ethics and happiness.
I’ll provide some advice on money. I teach marketing, not finance, but after working for eleven years in the corporate world and twelve years in the academic world, I’ve learned a few things about managing funds.
This is my most important piece of advice. You should set aside some money. Having funds in the bank gives you peace of mind; if things go poorly at work you will still be ok. It also gives you freedom; you can pursue…
