GIM China class of 2009

GIM China class of 2009

Picture this, an American from Cleveland, an Asian Indian American, a student from Poland and myself trying to agree on a research topic on China. That is our challenge over the next few weeks as we start our Global Initiatives in Management (GIM): China class.

GIM is a very popular course at Kellogg with more than 400 students participating last year and involves in-depth study of a country. Students can choose from one of 8 countries or regions that have a GIM class.

Students collaborate with faculty advisors to design a ten-week curriculum on the chosen country. The curriculum is taught in class and includes guest speakers. For GIM China we will study topics such as economics, health care reform, consumerism, culture and many more. Read more >>

When considering whether or not to embark on an MBA, one of my initial considerations was: how much more could I learn about “business” in a classroom compared with on-the-job experience?

There were two key aspects to the One-Year Kellogg MBA programme that tipped the decision towards the MBA.

First, and the most obvious, was the fact that I could graduate in a year and have almost complete flexibility to focus on the areas most important to my personal development. Read more >>

Kellogg Cares is an annual event, where volunteers sign up for a day of community service in the Evanston and Chicago area. This year was the largest in its six-year history, with 30 community organisations providing projects, 350 volunteers participating (up 150 from last year), and 20 per cent of those volunteers coming from outside the full time MBA programme – significant others, part time MBA students, PhDs, Executive MBA students, alumni, faculty and staff. Read more >>
