Wide Awake in the Windy City

Celebrating a Century of Excellence at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management
Matt Golosinski

In Wide Awake in the Windy City, Matt Golosinski traces the century-long ascent of the Kellogg School of Management, detailing its influence on marketing and its evolution as a globally renowned general management force. The story contextualizes the school's strategic decisions and brings to life some of its most important catalysts: deans, professors, students, and business practitioners.


The school historically turned disadvantage to opportunity, finding innovative ways to remain in the vanguard of management education. At every turn, this journey involved the vision of extraordinary people who, against the odds, created an enduring example of educational excellence.

"The Kellogg School is a one-of-a-kind resource. Business is about working together to find solutions and make things happen. I think Kellogg has that pragmatic, execution-based view to a degree that is unusual among the world's elite business schools. In my experience, I find that Kellogg has a unique ability to produce graduates who know how to collaborate to produce results." —Miles D. White, Chairman and CEO, Abbott
