Northwestern Kellogg Launches New Tech-Focused MBA Program

The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University recently announced the launch of MBAi, a new MBA program focused on technology. The program, which is a joint offering with the university’s McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, spans five quarters and features courses “designed for leaders operating at the nexus of business and AI [artificial intelligence]-driven technology,” according to the Kellogg website. Students also take part in a full-time summer internship and a week-long industry immersion experience at the school’s campus in San Francisco.

“Our world-class professors at Kellogg and McCormick also collaborated to develop a new catalog of courses that combines business strategy with the complex principles of emerging technologies,” Kate Smith, the school’s assistant dean of admissions and financial aid, wrote in the announcement of the new program. “This blended curriculum will deepen students’ understanding of the interdependent relationship and dialogue that exists between these disciplines,” Smith said. The curriculum will explore such themes as computational thinking for business, machine learning, and technical product management. The program opens for applications in September and welcomes applicants with four to six years of work experience, an undergraduate STEM degree or major, and technical work experience.
