The Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA program is an established and experienced program that truly synthesises the US American and European management know-how. While designed for executives preparing for senior management, the aim of the program is to prepare future senior managers to successfully lead organizations in a constantly changing business environment by focusing on TEAM leadership and personal development. In addition to learning from world renowned faculty from both the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University USA and WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management Germany, students can draw from the diverse backgrounds of their classmates – whether across cultures, industries and areas of expertise. Graduates earn a joint MBA degree from both business schools, and benefit strongly from the outstanding and active worldwide alumni network.
The class schedule of the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program allows executives to continue working while actively participating in the program. Thus, students have the added advantage of applying their newly acquired skills immediately in workplace situations. The program consists of thirty courses covering a broad range of topics covering all aspects of general management. Now in its 15th year, the highly successful Kellogg-WHU Program is modularly based, with classes generally taking place in Vallendar, Germany every two months with back-to-back weekends (Thurs-So) over a 2 year period. Overseas exposure include a required two-week session on the Kellogg campus (Evanston/Chicago) and one week module at one of the additional partner schools in Hong Kong, Tel Aviv, Toronto or Miami. As a result, the program is particularly suited to candidates who wish to enhance their global leadership skills and enter top management positions or establish their entrepreneurial path to success.
