9/9/2016 - This fall, 15 new tenure-line faculty members are joining Kellogg from a diverse range of backgrounds, including a former Wharton professor focused on healthcare consumer behavior, a machine learning expert who was a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft and a labor economist fluent in four languages. We welcome these nine women and six men to our vibrant intellectual community.

“Kellogg is always looking for outstanding faculty,” said Bob McDonald, who recently completed his three-year term as Senior Associate Dean of Faculty and Research. “Our goal is to hire professors who are great researchers, great teachers, great colleagues and stimulating to have around. We're thrilled with the people we hired last year.”
