Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program

The Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA program is a top ranked joint EMBA program between two world-class business schools: the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (USA) and WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management (Germany). The program is designed for professionals with at least 8 years of working experience including substantial managerial experience, who are looking to move into senior management. The adaptive class schedule allows EMBA students to continue working while actively participating in the program. The Kellogg-WHU Program is modularly based, with classes taking place for the most part in Vallendar, Germany. Classes are held every six weeks with back-to-back weekends (Thursday through Sunday) over a 21-month period. The Master Thesis is generally completed 3 months thereafter. In addition, there is a required two-week international core module in Chicago, and at least one weeklong global elective module, which can be completed at any of the Kellogg EMBA Global Network’s international hubs: Hong Kong, Beijing, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Chicago, or Miami.
