Friday Factoid: Kellogg’s Entrepreneurial Strength

Let’s play a quick game of word association. We’ll start… “Kellogg.” Ok, go ahead… “Entrepreneurship.” Right? No? Aspiring MBAs may be surprised to learn that Kellogg offers approximately 29 courses in this discipline and that roughly 16% of each student class typically completes an Entrepreneurship and Innovation major—defying the stereotype that Kellogg produces only marketing MBAs. But Kellogg’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program offers more than classes; it provides a variety of hands-on opportunities, including the Entrepreneurial Internship Program, in which rising second-year students intern with small businesses to help facilitate career transitions (while earning a $1,000 weekly stipend).

Kellogg also has an Entrepreneur in Residence program, wherein an experienced entrepreneur hosts half-hour sessions with students who aspire to careers in this field or are seeking advice on their already active projects. MBA student entrepreneurs coming from or planning to enter a family business will likely be interested to learn that Kellogg’s Center for Family Businesses not only publishes research and cases on family business, but also confidentially consults to family-run companies. Indeed, this is all just the tip of the iceberg…

Go beyond the stereotypes. For in-depth information on Kellogg and 14 other leading business school programs, check out the mbaMission Insider’s Guides.
