The Kellogg Global Hub

The Kellogg MBA program at Northwestern University opened the Kellogg Global Hub in 2017, and what a building it is!  The curving, glass and steel facade hides a huge atrium on the inside, with Spanish steps where students can sit and mingle, and views through one side of Lake Michigan, and views through the other side of Downtown Chicago.  Even better, the building is LEED certified as Platinum because of its low environmental impact.

More importantly for you as a prospective student, the building is just as functional as it is beautiful:

In short, the building supports almost everything you might want to do there.

Kellogg’s Evanston Location

The Global Hub is located in Evanston, a small suburb of Chicago that has a great mix of action and relaxation.  Because Evanston is suburban rather than urban, rents on apartments will be lower than in Downtown Chicago, and if you live nearby, everything will be walkable.  Furthermore, you’ll probably run into your classmates as you go about your business. Evanston has everything you’d expect of a university town, like a Whole Foods just a couple blocks from campus, more than 200 restaurants, and other amenities.  Many students appreciate Evanston’s relaxed environment, and it can be especially nice for families.

However, Chicago is nearby for networking and recruiting events, and Evanston is not too far from two major airports, O’Hare and Midway, meaning that you can easily make your connections to flights for both domestic and international travel.

Kellogg’s Global Treks, Trips and Exchanges

Kellogg makes the most of Chicago’s central location and great airports by offering a large number of international programs:
