Innovative student-run conference brings 'Ideas to Action'

What's next in manufacturing? That will be the question occupying Kellogg students, faculty, alumni and industry experts at the Manufacturing Business Conference on May 12.

The daylong event, held at the James L. Allen Center on the Kellogg School's Evanston campus, will explore topics such as global manufacturing, mergers and acquisitions, and knowledge management. Speakers, panel discussions, networking opportunities and an innovation workshop led by Google, are among the highlights of the conference, whose theme is "Ideas to Action." 

Randy Pond, senior vice president for operations at Cisco Systems Inc., and Peter Swartz, director of IT, global manufacturing, finance and supply chain at Dell Inc., will deliver the keynote address. Discussions will include the role that operations plays in M&A and private equity decisions, how to balance environmental benefits and economic costs, and the challenges of outsourcing manufacturing to China.

Presented by the Kellogg School's Master of Management and Manufacturing Program (MMM), the conference is celebrating its 12th year. The MMM program marks its 17th anniversary this year. For more information and to register, visit the Conference Web site.
