From May 2-6, Pride@Kellogg (P@K) hosted the second annual LGBT Ally Week with the aim of celebrating diversity and raising awareness of LGBT issues and rights. The week featured 10 different social and speaker events targeting different members of the Kellogg audience, with topics ranging from LGBT individuals in sports to tips for being a better Ally in the workplace.
Throughout the course of the week, more than 230 people attended six speaker events. There was also a solid showing for two social events and a series of small group dinner discussions focused on relevant topics. The week culminated with LGBT Preview Day, which invited prospective students from across the country to experience a day in the life of a Kellogg student.
Kellogg’s Office of Admissions and the Gay and Lesbian Management Association are excited to welcome students to campus on Friday, Nov. 14, for LGBT Preview Day. Students will be able to:
- Participate in mock classes, in order to get a sense of what it is like to be a student at Kellogg
- Hear from a collection of Kellogg faculty who represent the school’s diverse academic opportunities and strategic initiatives
- Interact with current students and alumni, who can talk about their experiences at Kellogg and how the school helped them grow personally and professionally
- Learn about the recruiting process and the school’s top-ranked Career Management Center, including how the school’s career coaches offer personal assistance to students and alumni
- Talk with admissions officers about any application-related questions
- And more!
In partnership with the Kellogg Veterans Association, the admissions team is proud to invite military veterans to our inaugural Kellogg Military Preview Day. This year’s event will be held on Friday, Oct. 17.
Prospective students who come to the event will be able to learn all about the transition from the military to business school and how the school supports veterans. The preview day will also showcase the strong student culture and tight-knit veteran community at Kellogg.
Welcome to campus! Attendees of our One-Year and MMM Preview Day gather for a group photo by Lake Michigan during their tour.

Over the past few months, the Admissions team has been on the road, meeting prospective Kellogg MBA students in their respective hometowns. What a great opportunity it has been to see the world and talk to those who could potentially become part of the Kellogg MBA Class of 2016!
During these trips, our alumni were incredibly welcoming and generous, giving their time as panelists, network connections and hosts to those considering the MBA program. Time and time again we saw how our alumni “pay it forward” to others, which is truly a characteristic that differentiates our alumni and makes the Kellogg alumni network so valuable.
While we finish up some travel, we are also making plans to welcome many of the prospective students we have met in Evanston for one of several on-campus Preview Days during the months of October and November. Our students, faculty, staff and deans are excited to help others learn about all of the incredible opportunities at Kellogg through targeted events, like the Specialized Program Preview Day for candidates interested in the One-Year MBA, MMM or JD-MBA programs, Diversity Weekend, hosted in partnership with the Africa Business Club (ABC), Black Management Association (BMA) and Hispanic Management Association (HMA), and many more.
If you are able to join us, make sure to plan an extra day to rent a bike and ride along the lakefront path, check out some of the world class museums, see a show or catch a football game (Northwestern University is ranked #16 in the polls this week). We love hosting students in Chicago and Evanston during the fall months and hope you’ll be able to attend one of the following:
Registration for each of these events opens one month prior, so mark your calendars because space is limited. And if you still have questions, email us at MBAadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu.
We hope to see you soon!
