Ernst & Young sends its senior partners to the Kellogg School to help them understand business from the client’s point of view. E&Y can better serve its clients when partners understand the issues their customers face.
“We’ve been working with the Kellogg School since the early ’80s. The custom programs help our leaders, our senior partners, to understand the different perspectives of a business. That’s strategy, governance, risk, marketing and finance — all the topics that drive the fundamentals of business. This helps us to do a better job, whether we’re auditing a company or providing another service, such as tax and transaction support. The Kellogg program is consistently the highest-ranked learning and development activity of our partners. The partners like it for the quality of the material, the quality of the instructors, and the relevance of the case studies to our business. It’s always a great learning experience on topics that are relevant to our people.”
