Kellstadt Graduate School of Business

Chicago Skyline

Built on Theory and Practice

At Kellstadt, you'll master business theory, but not get mired in it. You'll work on solutions for real-world business problems, sharpening your instincts and preparing you for all the next steps in your career.

Our approach leverages faculty who are industry experts and entrepreneurs. They walk the talk — whether it's setting up virtual trading sessions in the Finance Lab, partnering with the Federal Reserve Bank on industry research, or bringing a top exec from Kraft to class to share insights. They form the connective tissue between DePaul and Chicago business, but they have reach in global business as well. Every Kellstadt degree program has an international component, and you'll have multiple options for studying abroad.

Networked for Success

Who you know matters. Getting your graduate degree here means you'll get to know alumni who come back to give back, professors who have great connections and dedicated career advisors to help you navigate what comes next. You'll become part of a huge network of Kellstadt alumni — many of whom hire Kellstadt graduates.

This is a dynamic and diverse community — one that knows that the greatest business successes come from balancing drive and ambition with principled leadership.
