Connecting Industry with the Kellogg Community

The Kellogg Corporate Partnerships team facilitates the flow of real-world issues, insights and solutions between industry and the Kellogg community.

Corporate Partnerships works to understand a company’s needs and goals. In addition to partnering on student engagements, we can help navigate Kellogg and uncover additional opportunities—from recruiting new talent to developing executive talent—that can inspire dynamic change.


Utilizing best-in-class MBAs who are near the target age of our consumers provides us with a fresh perspective that we sometimes overlook.

Research Collaborations

When Alicia Tillman became CMO at tech giant SAP in 2017, she was taking on a unique challenge. SAP is a 46-year-old company that is best known for back-office software, the ins and outs of which can be hard to describe to all but the most tech-savvy audiences. Tillman sat down with Eric Leininger, co-director of the Kellogg Chief Marketing Officer Program, to describe the new strategy.
