Beyond the MBA Classroom: Formal Balls at Kellogg

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.
Beyond the MBA Classroom: Formal Balls at Kellogg - mbaMission

Students at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management certainly have no shortage of events on their social calendars. A series of student-run formal balls peppers the first-year calendar, including the Fall Ball, the Charity Auction Ball, and the Casino Ball. When mbaMission interviewed students about their social calendar, many had trouble placing the names and themes of the balls, as they had been to all of them, and the different events had seemingly fused into a single memory. In short, once the school year begins, the average Kellogg student can expect to wear a tuxedo or ball gown more frequently than he/she might typically be accustomed to.
