Recruiting events offer you an opportunity to show students how they can make an impact. Begin to build one-to-one relationships through our diverse mix of recruiting events and networking opportunities.

Company Presentations

Company presentations offer an opportunity to showcase the opportunities and career paths available to MBA students at your company. Each company is allocated an hour for a planned presentation and networking.

At any given time, multiple presentations can take place. The Employer Relations Team strives to prevent competing companies (same industry/function) from presenting at the same time.

Logistics of company presentations:
  • Presentations, once scheduled, are advertised on the Kellogg Calendar as well as the Career Management System.
  • Lunch presentations are scheduled on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 12:15 p.m.
  • Evening presentations are scheduled, Mondays through Thursdays at 5:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
    • 5:15 p.m. presentations can be held on- or off-campus
    • 7:00 p.m. presentations take place off-campus
    • 5:15 p.m. presentations will not be held on the evenings when Kellogg Networking Nights occur
  • For off-site presentations, companies must arrange, cancel or change their events with the appropriate facility contact person after confirming a date and time with your Industry Relationship Manager.
  • Catering is handled by the company. The CMC will supply a space for food set-up for on-campus presentations. When choosing your food, please remember to include vegetarian options.
  • When requesting presentation dates, please consider your preferred interview dates and the corresponding student application deadlines below.
  • Due to a late academic start date, we strongly encourage companies to consider attending a 2nd year Kellogg Networking Night in lieu of a formal company presentation.
    • Companies who had less than a certain number of students attend their 2nd year presentation last fall will only be booked for a corporate presentation if space permits.

Kellogg Networking Nights (KNNs) offer a valuable alternative to formal corporate presentations. These events are recommended for companies who want to engage with a wide audience of students or who are new to Kellogg recruiting.

Atrium Hours

Atrium Hours offer companies a way to extend brand presence on-campus and informally meet with students. Kellogg provides each company with one six-foot table in a central location of the Global Hub, inviting “drop-in” conversations with students who visit your table.

Coffee Chats

Coffee chats are individual or small group meetings between students and company reps. Students rate this as a very popular way to interact with companies and learn about the organization and employment opportunities. Important coffee chat details include:
  • Companies are responsible for finding locations for the chats. We are not able to provide interview rooms for these events.
  • The CMS will serve as the platform for students to see available coffee chat opportunities. Our office is not able to support coffee chats in any other way, such as messaging students on behalf of individual companies, or providing schedules or resumes for company reps on the day of the events.
  • Companies are able to see their schedules/registered students through the CMS.
  • The system will facilitate open signups only. If you plan to invite specific candidates, please work with clubs to publicize your opportunity, and do not submit a request through the CMS. 
  • If you plan to hold coffee chats on multiple days, please submit a separate request for each day.
  • Student Process:
    • Sign-ups will start at noon Central time on Wednesdays.
    • For coffee chats in any given week, your request must be processed before Wednesday of the prior week.
    • Students will have until 11:59 p.m. the day before the coffee chats to cancel their slot or swap times with another student.
