Kellogg School of Management | Groups


Energy is one of the most sought-after industries at Kellogg - each year, hundreds of students select the energy industry as a preference/target while looking for employment opportunities. The Kellogg Energy Club hosts events to help students learn more about the industry, connect with leading oil & gas and cleantech companies, network with other MBAs interested in the field, and more. Types of events include the following:

Date: Throughout the academic year
Location: Kellogg Global Hub

The club will facilitate Lunch ‘n’ Learns where corporations present and discuss specific practices, industries, projects, etc. The objective is for first- and second-year students, both Energy Club members and non-members, to learn more about industry trends and companies across the entire energy value chain.

Date: Throughout the academic year
Location: Evanston and Chicago

The club has several networking events planned throughout the year, including firm-specific presentations, dinners and socials. Some of these are in partnership with Northwestern-based organizations like the Institute for Sustainability and Energy at Northwestern (ISON), as well as external organizations like Coalition: Energy. These events provide students and companies a forum for networking and knowledge-sharing

Date: Fall and Winter quarters
Location: Kellogg Global Hub

The club’s Career Boot Camp allows students interested in energy-related careers to learn about job opportunities, including internships for first-year students and full-time jobs for second-year students. Staff from Kellogg’s career management center (CMC) are active members of the boot camp, answering student-questions as well as connecting them with the appropriate industry contacts.

Date: November, 2017
Locations: San Francisco

The club’s cleantech trek to San Francisco is an excellent supplement to our on-campus and Chicago events, allowing students to experience first-hand the inner workings of companies across the entire energy value chain. Students get access to top leadership at companies they visit through presentations, happy hours and networking lunches/dinners.

Date: Throughout the academic year
Location: Evanston

Held once every quarter, the Exelon Sustainability Speaker Series brings experts to campus to speak on sustainable business topics ranging including corporate sustainability, green products, energy, and regulation.
