• Beside a great student
    there's a Joint Venture

Join other partners, significant others and families of Kellogg students and learn more about the opportunities available to you as a "Joint Venture" (JV).

That’s right, if your partner is a student here, you are a Joint Venture (JV)! Welcome to the Kellogg family!

Who are we?

Established in 1982, Kellogg Joint Ventures is the official club for the loved ones of students attending Kellogg. Like you, we are the spouses and partners of students, and we’re a dedicated network that is here to help.

What do we do?

Most incoming students come to Kellogg accompanied by a partner. With activities all year long, the JV Exec Team and club members aim to facilitate a smooth transition to life at Kellogg for newcomers and continue to provide mutual support throughout your stay. We hope to make your time at Kellogg an enriching and memorable experience.

Activities for JVs include lunches and dinners, social get-togethers, cultural events, career development assistance, and meaningful volunteer opportunities. We maintain a strong integration with the entire Kellogg community and hold joint activities with other clubs from time to time.

Who is our website for?


This website was created to provide information and help our Joint Ventures in every stage of their journey at Kellogg.

Prospective JVs

Prospective JVs can discover what Kellogg and Northwestern University can offer to them in order to make the best decision. This journey can be rich and meaningful. You can keep growing in every aspect with an environment full of opportunities and open doors. We highly recommend you to visit Evanston and participate in DAK (Day at Kellogg). You can find everything you need to know about that experience here as well.

Incoming JVs

Incoming JVs can find newcomer resources and helpful information to settle down and get involved as much as possible. You can get answers to frequently asked questions and also communicate directly with the Kellogg Joint Ventures Club. Kellogg has a diverse and inclusive community from all over the world ready to welcome you. One of our main and first activities for you is KWEST and you can find information about it here.

Current JVs

Current JVs can attend to classes at Kellogg Management School for free and all that information is here. Every Joint Venture can create a profile on Campus Groups and stay fully informed through our Newsletter. They can also join most of the clubs and participate in their activities as any student. We encourage our JVs to share their experience at Kellogg by sending out testimonies and pictures to the Club.
