As the calendar turned to 2016, Poets & Quants took a look back at what the website considered “The most innovative business school ideas of 2015.” The first item on the list: Kellogg’s growth and scaling curriculum.
Kellogg faculty members Craig Garthwaite and Lauren Rivera were recently recognized on “The World’s Best 40 Under 40 Business School Professors” list by Poets & Quants. Garthwaite is an assistant professor of strategy at Kellogg, while Rivera is an associate professor of management and operations.
To make it on the list, Poets & Quants writes that the professors need to possess an excellence in research, combined with world-class teaching prowess.
Poets & Quants recently examined the rising popularity of double-degree programs offered at business schools across the country, including Kellogg’s MMM program.
The MMM Program gives students a rigorous business education and a solid foundation in design innovation. When students graduate from the two-year program, they receive an MBA from Kellogg and an MS in Design Innovation from the Segal Design Institute at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science.
In the Poets & Quants story, current MMM student Lexi Smith described her experience in the program:
“It’s really helped me think about solving problems differently,” Smith said. “It’s really helped me unlock different perspectives of how to look at a problem from an end-user perspective.”
