Dear Alumni and Friends,
Kellogg just completed another year of significant fundraising, surpassing the $250 million mark. We are well on our way — and on target — to reaching our $350 million goal. None of this would have been possible without the commitment of our alumni and friends.
As we head into the final leg of our 7-Year Plan for Transformation, we are beginning to feel the impact of our hard work and see the upward arc of Kellogg’s new trajectory. This year’s Investors Report gives us the opportunity to look back and celebrate the tremendous strides we’ve made and those who have helped make this vision a reality. With two years remaining in our capital campaign, we can begin to see the future we have envisioned together.
We close this year celebrating some key accomplishments:
- Topping off our new 410,000-square-foot global hub this fall, the most visible evidence of Kellogg’s progress. Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2016, meaning we are just over a year away from our
- Welcoming the most accomplished and diverse Full-Time MBA class to Kellogg. The Class of 2017 boasts enrollment of 43 percent women and a 724 average GMAT score, both record highs.
- Expanding what is already the largest global footprint with new
international courses and the broadest array of learning options to
ensure our students develop the skills and insights required to lead and thrive in the global economy.
- Reveling in the intellectual achievements of our world-class faculty, including Jan Eberly, named co-editor of the Brookings Papers on Economic Activity, and David Besanko, who received the Aspen Faculty Pioneer Award for his teaching on business practices that contribute to a more inclusive economy.
These achievements would not have been possible without your
commitment to Kellogg’s future and to ensuring that Kellogg will
continue to develop brave leaders who inspire growth in people,
organizations and markets. Thank you for your continuing
support and for providing the momentum we need to make
our vision a reality.
All the best,
Sally Blount ’92
