Just as students do not know what jobs they will be offered when they graduate, similarly they do not know as first year students coming in to Northwestern which of the educational programs here will best suit them. Strongly quantitative students will likely be drawn to programs like Industrial Engineering and Management Science (IEMS) or Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences (MMSS). Students who are fascinated by organizations will want to consider Learning and Organizational Change (LOC). Graduates from the School of Communication and the Medill School of Journalism find work with employers who need to reach people and deliver complex information. Students who love studying social sciences head to business through majors like economics and psychology. Furthermore, no matter what major a student chooses, further useful understanding and skills can be learned through the Kapnick Business Institutions Program or the highly quantitative Kellogg Certificates in Financial Economics and Managerial Analytics. Finally, students of all backgrounds may find that Kellogg’s Russell Fellows Masters of Science in Management Studies (MSMS) program the right step for right after graduation.
