Executive Partnerships

Partnerships in growth and collaboration

Kellogg maximizes opportunities in healthcare by partnering with executives and organizations across a wide range of industries. These collaborations support students as well as corporations looking to broaden their perspectives.

Students will have the opportunity to help solve a real-world business problem, while also gaining valuable insights into leadership, as well as exposure to new networks, companies and industries. Organizations gain access to Kellogg’s cutting-edge research from an expanded, dedicated team.

In 2018, Kellogg formed the Healthcare Advisory Council to advance the school’s strategic vision for training students to be business leaders who can create and capture value within healthcare firms. Its members come from a wide range of organizations from hospitals to biotech, insurers to medical device manufacturers.

The important question is how to create value for your stakeholders with the patient front and center of everything you and your team do. Kellogg helped me understand the power of leadership and the strength of a team, and I continue to use diverse thinking to get to the best solutions.
