Shannon Holly knew she wanted an MBA to advance her professional development, but she didn’t want to commit the time to a two-year program. That’s when she discovered Kellogg’s Full-Time One-Year MBA Program.
Instantly, she was hooked.
During her year in the program, Shannon took full advantage of the Kellogg experience. She majored in three different subjects, won the annual Kellogg Marketing Competition, traveled to South Africa to study challenges facing the education industry, joined an ’80s cover band and much, much more.
Tour Shannon’s interactive timeline to see how she shaped her Kellogg experience and how you can shape yours.
What is DAK? That was my first question as I began my role as Managing Director of the Career Management Center (CMC) just over a year ago. DAK stands for “Day at Kellogg” and we held our first DAK of 2015 this past February.
DAK is an extended weekend where admitted students and their spouse, significant other, partner, etc. come to get a feel for the real Kellogg. It is a peek behind the curtain and a glimpse into what a life at Kellogg would feel like, from the social experience and academic life to my personal favorite – navigating your career life!
I spoke with a few hundred admitted students about the high-quality student and alumni career support they could expect to receive as a member of the Kellogg community. Continue Reading
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.
I came to Kellogg after four years in corporate finance at Dell, based in Austin, Texas. I was part of a leadership development program where I had the opportunity to rotate through roles all across the finance and accounting function.
Once Dell went private, I decided I would take the opportunity to apply to business school for the fall. I always knew I wanted to go back, but the leveraged buyout was definitely the catalyst.
While applying, I was trying to decide which business school would be best for me. Luckily I ended up with a couple of options, but after attending DAK (Day at Kellogg – our version of admitted students weekend) there was definitely only one choice! I loved how students planned all the weekend events. That just proved to me how much the people here care about Kellogg. After being around my new classmates for a couple of months, I can tell that was the right decision.
Welcome to Kellogg, admits! We are thrilled to meet you! Share your congrats and your own DAK memories using #DAK14.
