How to Apply for an MBA | Full-Time Program | Kellogg School of Management (northwestern.edu)

Kellogg is unique in that we ask you to complete written essays as part of the application as well as video essays. This is your chance to tell us why you think Kellogg is the right place for you. Take some time to think through the experiences that led you here and how they have shaped where you want to go.

Written Essays

The following two essays are required of all applicants:

  1. Kellogg’s purpose is to educate, equip and inspire leaders who create lasting value. Provide a recent example where you have demonstrated leadership and created value. What challenges did you face and what did you learn? (450 words)
  2. Values are what guide you in your life and work. What values are important to you and how have they influenced you? (450 words)

Certain applicants will respond to additional questions:

One-Year applicants: Please discuss your post-MBA career goal, the current experience you will leverage to support the transition, and the Kellogg One-Year MBA opportunities that will help you reach this goal. (250 words)

MBAi applicants: The Kellogg McCormick MBAi Program is designed to train the next generation of leaders who can help businesses deliver successful outcomes through AI-driven technology. This requires leaders who have both strong technical and business skills; many firms struggle to find leaders with these skills. Tell us about your firsthand experience with this disconnect between business and technology and how MBAi will prepare you to successfully lead businesses at the intersection. (450 words)

MMM applicants: The five core values of the MMM Program are curiosity, creativity, empathy, open-mindedness and a learning mindset. Describe a situation in which you demonstrated one of these values. Why is this value an important part of the MMM experience for you? (250 words)

コロナウィルス拡大の影響とMBA Admissions Information② (締め切り日の延期、テスト受験等)

〇 Northwestern University (Kellogg School)

Round 3 application extension: the details
The current deadline for Round 3 applications to our Full-Time MBA Programs will still stand on April 8. If you can meet that deadline, you’ll be among the first we review for admission and scholarship decisions, which will be released on May 13.

However, after the April 8 deadline, we are moving to rolling admissions for Round 3 through June 1. Due to the current pandemic, some of you have encountered barriers to meeting the original deadline. We’re also aware that many of your personal and professional situations may have changed, making business school a priority for next year.

Though we will keep accepting applications through June 1, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible, especially for 1Y, MMM and international applicants. Rolling decisions will apply to both admission and scholarship awards. Additionally, the sooner you receive your decision the sooner you can start planning for next year!

Online GMAT/GRE scores accepted

For the first time ever, the GMAT and GRE are now available to be taken online. We’re very pleased to see that the testing organizations have taken this step to put safety first. Kellogg will accept scores submitted through this new virtual testing model.

If you are unable to take the GMAT/GRE or TOEFL, you can still apply. We will wait to render your final admissions decision until we receive your score. If you are unable to submit a test score in time for receiving a decision this year, we will roll your application components forward to next year so that you don’t have to re-submit entirely. If you are planning to submit without a score, you need to contact us via MBAadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu or 847.491.3308 so we can help you submit it manually. You will not be able to do it yourself.

【Adam Markus & Affinity英語学院共催: 8/11 (土)】MBA ESSAY QUESTION ANALYSIS: ANALYZE, ANSWER, GET IN!


そうした状況も踏まえ、来月8月11日 (土)にAdam Markus氏とMBA出願対策セミナー(MBA Essay Question Analysis) を共催することになりました。Adamとは、ザ・プリンストン・レビュー・オブ・ジャパン(現:アゴス・ジャパン)でGraduate Admissions Consultingの仕事を共に開始して以来の付き合いとなります。2007年の独立後も、Adamは数多くのアプリカントをトップビジネススクール合格へと導いてきました。そして近年においては、日本人のみならず世界各国のアプリカントに対して卓越した指導力と経験を発揮しております。




The objective of this presentation is to help you better understand MBA Admission Essay Questions in order to write effective essays and gain admission.   While examples will be drawn from the M7+INSEAD+LBS, the objective of this presentation is that you learn how to effectively analyze the essay questions for any school.

Part 1: What is an Essay Question?  Isn’t an essay question just one the school defines as an essay?  Well, actually no. This might seem like a strange conclusion but given that some applications include video essays and very extensive application form content, the answer is less obvious.  For our purposes an essay will be considered any application component except the resume, which is prepared by the applicant, and requires an interpretive and not just fact-based answer. Such an inclusive definition is useful when things like video essays and extended application form content are used instead of and/or in addition to essays.

Part 2: Primary Types of Essay Questions. In this section we will look at the types of essay questions using actual examples. Types covered will include goals, accomplishment, failure, leadership, personality, and contribution. The objective will be for you to understand how to identify and address a range of questions.

Part 3: The Essay Set. In this section we will see how an entire set of questions connects together to understand that that an essay component never is isolated but always part of a bigger whole.  We will compare two different essay sets. The objective will be for you to understand how to build a complete portrait of yourself that is focused on what each school is looking for.

Part 4: Trends in Essay Questions for 2018-2019. In this section we will look at the current trends. In particular we will look at video essays and shorter essay sets. The objective will be for you to know how to handle these trends effectively.

Part 5: Questions. I want to leave plenty of time for questions, so please be ready to ask questions related to the above, your individual concerns, or essay questions that I will not have covered.

11 new courses of Nothwestern, Kellogg

各校では2017年度に向け、カリキュラム改訂も進んでいます。そした中、Northwestern University, Kellogg School of Managementでは新コースが発表されました。

 Human and Machine Intelligence
 (Adam Pah, Spring 2017)

Human and Machine Intelligence delves into new research findings on artificial intelligence and the applications for modern business leaders. Using sophisticated AI programs like IBM’s Deep Blue and Google’s AlphaGo, this course will develop students’ data science skills and teach them to apply “human+machine thought partnerships” to grow businesses.

“While there are many examples of machines outperforming humans at some tasks, its less clear when machines can augment human decision-making and creativity,” said Adam Pah, Clinical Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations. “We will focus on how students can leverage machine intelligence, while discussing the possibility and limitations of machine-learning to enhance their output and performance beyond a human or machine alone.”

 Launching and Leading Startups
 (Brad Morehead, Winter 2017; Carter Cast, Spring 2017)

Launching and Leading Startups examines some of the most challenging and pervasive problems faced by entrepreneurial CEOs – including evaluating markets, developing products, mitigating risk, and creating effective go-to-market strategies while leading teams and managing boards from the CEO “hot seat”.

“Our Kellogg Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative leadership team realized there was an opportunity to offer a broad survey course for innovative, entrepreneurially-minded students who want to gain exposure to entrepreneurship,” said Carter Cast, Clinical Professor of Innovation & Entrepreneurship. “This will be a good class for students who are curious about entrepreneurship and who think they may pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor in the near future, whether through starting their own business, acquiring a business or joining an early-stage startup.”

Consumers, Culture and Leadership (Greg Carpenter, Fall 2016)

Consumers, Culture and Leadership explores how firms develop a deep understanding of customers, how leaders can create more agile, innovative organizations and how leaders can create new markets, redefine existing ones and deliver value to demanding buyers.

“Much of the thinking behind customer centricity was developed at Kellogg and remains central to our distinctive approach,” said Greg Carpenter, James Farley/Booz Allen Hamilton Professor of Marketing Strategy. “The timing seems right to offer a new course to more formally explore the rising influence of consumers, how organizations are transforming their culture to focus more on consumers, and successful leadership models for customer-centric firms.”

Business of Social Change (Megan Kashner, Winter 2017)

Business of Social Change studies a singular social issue to help students understand the causes, measurement, levers and outcomes inherent to the business of social change work. With this term’s focus on uneducated and unemployed American youths, students will hear from guest speakers including policy experts, large-scale employers of youth, impact measurement experts and experts on labor, detention and workforce development.

“We’ve added this new course to provide students with the foundational tools and approaches to follow a social or sustainability challenge from etiology to measurement to levers for change and impact,” said Megan Kashner, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Kellogg Public-Private Interface. “Students will complete this course with the skills to determine the roots of a problem and the paths to large-scale and market-driven change.”

Other new courses for the 2016-2017 academic year include:
