Requirements:

Our application process is open to those who have a bachelor's degree (or equivalent in the case of foreign institutions) from an accredited college or university. There are many paths to Kellogg and our students come from a variety of undergraduate majors. Prior study in business or economics is not a requirement for application or admission.
 
Since the Kellogg Part-Time Program is designed to complement your career now and future goals, you need to have full time employment to apply. Likewise, once our students join Kellogg, the connection between the MBA and career progression continues as our students maintain a career-enhancing position while they attend Kellogg. 

The Evening Program is an excellent option for those who can meet for classes in the evenings. Therefore, applicants to this program work and live in the Chicago area (this can include certain areas of Wisconsin and Indiana). Residency in the Chicago area is required for application to the evening program. 
The Saturday Program is an option for anyone who lives in the area who cannot make it for evening classes, anyone with significant weekly travel, or anyone who lives beyond the Chicago area. 

The Admissions Committee will evaluate your scholastic ability, qualities of character and motivation, evidence of leadership, and managerial promise. Both you and the school are best served by an admission policy that seeks assurance of scholastic success and potential for effective management performance. 

Transfer of Credit to the MBA Program 
If you have completed coursework at another AACSB-accredited graduate school of management or business, you may be eligible to receive credit toward your degree for up to four courses. Any transfer courses must be completed with a grade of B or higher; may not have been used toward completion of another degree; and must be similar in content to courses offered at the Kellogg School. Transfer credit is not included in the cumulative grade-point average. 

If you apply and are admitted to Kellogg, you should submit your letter for transfer credit as early as possible after acceptance into the program. Your information must include an official copy of the transcript, catalog description and course syllabus. 

Prospective Applicants with MBA Degrees - Visiting Graduate Student 
If you already possess an MBA degree, or an equivalent degree, you are not eligible to study for an MBA degree in the Kellogg School‘s Part-Time MBA Program. However, within the program, we do make provisions for Visiting Graduate Student status (VGS). 

The Visiting Graduate Student program provides the opportunity to complete up to three courses with Kellogg. In all cases, visiting graduate students are accommodated only after Kellogg MBA degree candidates are registered. 

The following eligibility points apply to the Visiting Graduate Student program: 

1. The program is an option for candidates living and working in the Chicago area who have completed an MBA. In this case, the VGS option is a 3-course supplement to an MBA earned from another institution. The VGS program is not designed for students in other MBA programs who wish to take Kellogg courses mid-stream or while they are with another Chicago-area programs. 
2. The program is also an option for anyone who is relocated to the Chicago area prior to completing an MBA program already in progress. In this case, the VGS option can be used to complete final degree requirements for an MBA program already in progress. This candidate may transfer up to three courses back to the school of origin. 

Visiting graduate students can take up to three classes but they do not have access to student career services or club events.

Application Checklist

Admission

The Kellogg Part-Time Program offers the same degree as the Kellogg School's Full-Time MBA Program. The part-time program is designed for working professionals who wish to earn a Kellogg MBA on a part-time basis. Though the part-time program has a separate application, admission standards for the program are identical to those of the full-time program. Candidates may apply either to the part-time program or the full-time program, but not both at the same time.

Admission is granted on the assumption that a bachelor's degree or equivalent will have been conferred by the time the student enters the school. The Admissions Committee evaluates the applicant's scholastic ability, qualities of character and motivation, evidence of leadership and managerial promise.

Those who wish to register for any course taught through the Kellogg School must first be admitted to the Kellogg School of Management; the Kellogg School does not offer a student-at-large program.

How to Apply
At the time of application, candidates will select a preference for the Evening or Saturday Part-Time MBA Programs. 

The Kellogg Part-Time Program has rolling admissions and each application cycle consists of two rounds, however, there is not a preference given for Round 1 versus Round 2. We admit candidates based on the quality of the applicant profile, not timing of the application. The Rounds allow the candidate the opportunity to apply early and know of the admission committee's decision.

The application and its accompanying components may be completed and submitted in any order. However all application components must be completed and submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST on the application deadline of the session for which admission is requested. The application components are:


- Kellogg Part-Time Program application 
- Essays 
- Recommendations - using the Kellogg Part-Time Program application form 
- Official transcripts 
- GMAT/GRE test taken 
- Interview - with a member of the Kellogg Part-Time Program staff

The Admissions Committee carefully appraises the following: 

1. Application and Essays: Click here to apply online or download the paper application in MS Word format.

2. Official Transcripts: The Kellogg School requires official transcripts from all universities and colleges attended in the United States and abroad, whether the applicant graduated from the institution or took just one class. Official transcripts must be submitted in a sealed envelope with a signature or seal of the university registrar. 

For those who have attended an undergraduate or graduate institution abroad and who cannot obtain official mark sheets in a timely manner, we will accept a notarized photocopy of the original mark sheet/transcript.

All transcripts/mark sheets should be in English or transcribed to English (by way of educational transcription services).

3. Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) or Graduate Record Examinations (GRE):All applicants are required to take the GMAT or the GRE and submit a valid test score (taken within the last five years). It is the responsibility of the applicant to obtain information related to taking the GMAT/GRE. Information can be obtained at gmat.com. The GMAT code for the Kellogg Part-Time MBA Program is: 6WZ 3J 66. The Kellogg School's GRE code is 7921. The TOEFL exam is not required for application to the Kellogg Part-Time Programs.

4. Letters of Recommendation: The Part-Time MBA Program requires two letters of recommendation from persons who can evaluate on-the-job performance and the applicant's potential for a successful management career. One of the letters must be from the candidate's current, direct supervisor.

5. Interview: Each applicant must participate in a personal interview with a representative of the Part-Time MBA Program before the application is considered complete. The interview provides important insight into an applicant's accomplishments in full- and part-time work settings and extracurricular activities, as well as indications of an applicant's career potential, and focus and plans to complete the Master of Business Administration program.

The Kellogg School Part-Time MBA Program conducts interviews on a Monday - Friday basis between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at our downtown Chicago campus - 340 East Superior Street.

Applicants applying to the Saturday Program who live beyond the greater Chicago area: If you want to take advantage of an optional class visit on the day that you interview, please request an afternoon interview time (3:00 or 4:00 p.m.). Please note that we do not have Friday classes in the Part-Time MBA Programs.

Please call 312.503.8385 to schedule your interview. The application does not need to be submitted prior to the interview; however, candidates should bring an updated résumé to the interview.
