Creating lasting social value

Kellogg School of Management has a long history of educating leaders who can leverage the power of markets to create lasting social value. Our graduates have gone on to significant positions in Fortune 500 companies; have started their own enterprises in a variety of fields; have pursued management opportunities in government, socially responsible corporations and nonprofit organizations.

These alumni may choose positions with global businesses, government, consulting firms, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions. In addition, our alumni are active in their civic communities as elected officials, board members, volunteers and donors. Together, these activities strengthen Kellogg’s reputation as an institution committed to the education of socially conscious global leaders.

Kellogg alumni pride themselves on being accessible, supportive and helpful to students and other alumni as they seek to create social impact. Read stories of some of Kellogg’s alumni who are making change in this space.
