Kellogg-WHU EMBA: learning, leadership and lifelong connections08 July 2014, by IamExpat Spotter
When choosing an MBA program, there are two main areas people focus on: the quality of the education and educators, and the level of exposure to business. In an increasingly globalized world, the edge lies in having a genuinely global education.
Kellogg-WHU Global EMBA
With the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA program, students are exposed to a complete international perspective, in person. Synthesizing American and European management know-how, the course structure allows students to gain new perspectives from each major region of the world.
It includes intensive participation in global electives at WHU (Germany) and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (USA), along with prestigious international partner schools including Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Guanghua School of Management at Peking University, Tel Aviv University and York University in Toronto.

When Senior Sales and Marketing professional Sharam Sadeghi was looking for a Master of Business Administration program, he wanted one as global and culturally diverse as the Fortune 500 companies he worked for.
"The Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program was and still is, to me, the only relevant program which delivered all the key attributes I was seeking: a global perspective, academic excellence and essential tools for personal development to support the transformational journey I had decided to take."

A truly global program
The program of the Kellogg-WHU EMBA is designed in such a way that it combines required core courses with electives at one of the Kellogg School of Management’s international hubs.
Sharam Sadeghi chose his modules with the goal to expand his knowledge within his field of expertise and broaden his existing experience. "As a marketer, I really enjoyed the class Managing Value & Price Perception at the Kellogg Chicago campus, while as a globally-minded manager I was keen on understanding the basics of Deal Making in China during my international elective at Kellogg-HKUST in Hong Kong."
The course stretches over two years, beginning every year in September, in such a way that learning and personal development are maximized and time away from work and home is minimized. For more details, view a sample course structure.
Learning at Kellogg-WHU
The highly ranked program at Kellogg-WHU uses pioneering teaching methods and breakthrough research to offer real innovations in management education. The faculty is composed of leaders whose innovative ideas are now shaping business education.
Sadeghi describes the learning environment at Kellogg-WHU as impressive, stimulating, trustful and collaborative, "and not to forget full of fun, despite the hard work and intense courses, group projects and assignments."
Building a lifelong network
The global coverage of the program is reflected in the varied backgrounds and career experiences of its students and faculty.
"Apart from the world-class academic excellence of the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program," Sadeghi said, "I particularly enjoyed the diversity of classmates and faculty, the Kellogg-WHU Global Network, and the inspiring discussions I had with the top-notch executives I studied with."
"Even a few years after graduation, our class still enjoys its annual skiing trip; classmates meet up with one another all around the world when travelling and seek personal and professional advice. That’s the power and priceless value of the Kellogg-WHU Global Alumni Network.”
Choosing the Kellogg-WHU EMBA
For Sadeghi, the choice to do his MBA at Kellogg-WHU was based in part on the program’s reputation of excellence in marketing and management, but also on what the program represented and stood for.
"Shaping, educating and developing you into a truly global leader who is able to build and lead strong organizations, create lasting value and make a difference in the business world."
"If this is what you are seeking, then the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program is the way to go!"
