Kellogg Announces New Tech-Focused MBA Program

Applications for the new "MBAi" program to open in September

Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management has announced the launch of a new, technology-focused MBA program.

Dubbed the "MBAi," Kellogg's new program is set to prepare graduates for careers at the intersection of technology and management. 

The program is offered in partnership with the McCormick School of Engineering, and as such will include courses with prominently featured technology content. For example, the program will cover topics in artificial intelligence (AI) and data science, and how these subjects and others relate to business strategy and competitive advantage. 

Kellogg's new MBAi will also include a week-long immersion on the school's San Francisco campus, giving students easy access to Bay Area technology companies. Students will also be able to pursue an internship. 

The program will be delivered over five semesters (from September to a December graduation the following year.)

According to the program's webpage, prospective candidates should consider applying if they have some combination of the following requirements:

  • 4-6 years of work experience
  • Technical work experience (such as as a data scientist, software engineer, or R&D associate, etc.)
  • Undergraduate STEM degree or major

Applications for the new MBAi program are set to open in early September. For more information, please see Kellogg's MBAi webpage.
