A Message from the Director

Driving game-changing innovation requires more than a great idea. At the Kellogg School of Management, we equip students with the skill set to drive innovation across enterprises – startups, rapidly scaling ventures, family and middle-market businesses, and established corporations.

Our faculty teach students to identify a problem, design a solution based on a customer-centric approach, launch a product or service of high-value, and then continue to iterate on that innovation. Our program is as agile and nimble as the startups our students are launching and scaling, and just as we teach our students to continuously seek customer feedback, we too continuously iterate and expand our program based on the needs of Kellogg student entrepreneurs, innovators and growth leaders.

Since introducing the Kellogg Innovation and Entrepreneurship Initiative (KIEI) and re-launching our programming in the fall of 2012, we have expanded our faculty bench, piloted and grown several student fellows programs and seen continued success for our student alumni innovators – and we’re just getting started. We encourage you to learn more about our program.

We invite you to learn more about our Entrepreneurship, Growth & Scaling and Corporate Innovation curricular and co-curricular programming.
