Venue

Located in the heart of Northwestern University’s Evanston campus, the James L. Allen Center is the home of the Kellogg School of Management’s Executive Education programs and hosts more than 6,000 executives annually. The Allen Center is designed to facilitate peer learning and informal interactions among faculty and participants. The Center is completely self-contained with classrooms, study group rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, lounge areas, snack rooms, laundry service, and an exercise room. The goal is to create a special environment for learning that anticipates all educational and logistical needs in a seamless fashion, thereby minimizing distractions from the learning experience.
