MBA Gripes & Groans In A Follies’ Stunt

The MBA students at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management know how to complain–or at least make fun of the often mundane gripes expressed by MBAs all over the world.

In the latest staging of Special K, the student-run follies show at Kellogg, students poke fun at the plight of today’s debt-ridden, work-stressed, and job-rejected MBA student (see above).

Students are still uploading the live skits from the 2014 show. The 2014 show was staged from April 30th to May 3rd and included five performances. The show included a live cast (supported by a band and tech crew), a band feature, three digital shorts and a 15-minute feature film. This year’s show was titled #BusinessKollege and was the 35th anniversary show of Special K.

The performance is a huge event at Kellogg with alumni returning to see the Friday night performances. More than 100 students participated in this year’s show with 24 live cast members, 14 members in the band, 11 members of the tech crew, and some 76 others involved with the digital shorts and feature film.
