Corporate Sponsorship Resources

As a non-profit educational institution, the Kellogg School of Management allows student-run clubs to pursue corporate sponsorship, following strict corporate development policies. The Kellogg School provides two full-time staff members in the Corporate Relations Department, the Assistant Directors of Corporate Relations, to advise and support student clubs and conferences with their sponsorship needs. This individual serves as a liaison between the companies and the Kellogg students and is knowledgeable on Kellogg’s complex relationships and history with corporate partners. The Assistant Director of Corporate Relations approves all corporate solicitation plans for student run events, activities and conferences.
