Message from the Directors

Driving game-changing innovation requires more than just a great idea.

At Kellogg, 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. We support entrepreneurs and innovators as they overcome the hurdles founders and growth leaders face in the real world. 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 re-launching our program in the fall of 2012, we have expanded our course offerings, our faculty bench, piloted and grown several student fellows programs, and seen continued success for our student and alumni innovators – and we’re just getting started. We encourage you to learn more about our program.
