A Global Program for Distinct Leaders

Germany, USA
Global EMBA

The goal of the program is to provide future senior managers with the tools necessary to successfully lead organizations in a complex business environment. The program puts strong emphasis on team leadership, personal development, and internationality through group work, coaching, and global modules. Graduates earn a joint MBA degree from the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University and WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, and benefit from a strong global alumni network even long after graduation.

The structure of the Kellogg-WHU Global Executive MBA Program allows executives to continue working while actively participating in the program. Students have the opportunity to apply their newly acquired skills immediately in the workplace. The program consists of 30 courses covering a broad range of topics related to general management. The Kellogg-WHU Program is modularly based, with classes taking place on our beautiful and peaceful campus in Vallendar, Germany every two months with back-to-back weekends (Thurs-Sun) over a 2-year period. Our global opportunities consist of a required two-week session on the Kellogg campus (Evanston/Chicago) and one week module at one of our additional partner schools in Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Toronto or Miami.
