Program Description

Regional EMBA Program

Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University

The Regional Program is for students located in Chicago and the surrounding area. Classes meet one day a week, alternating Fridays and Saturdays throughout the academic year. Study group meetings take place during the week, while tutorials are held after class on Friday or Saturday to minimize trips to campus and maximize time spent at the Allen Center.

For six weeks at a time, Regional Program participants take two courses that cut across subject areas to provide innovative tools and techniques for solving managerial problems.

Twelve of these six-week modules are offered during the program. The program begins in September 2007 and ends in June 2009. Classes break for summer between the two years, and students participate in a week-long Live-In session at the beginning of each academic year.
