Dean Jacobs, GIM students and Benelux Kellogg alumni
Ambassador Rockwell Schnabel, front row, center, and some of his senior staff welcomed Kellogg Dean Emeritus Donald P. Jacobs, his GIM students, and Benelux Kellogg alumni into the U.S. Mission to the European Union in March.


The night of March 17 was a tense one, as the world watched in fascination and fear about the war that was about to be unleashed in Iraq ... the world minus those lucky Kellogg students, alums and friends who were welcomed into the folds of the U.S. Mission to the European Union for a very special evening. Ambassador Rockwell Schnabel and some of his senior staff welcomed Dean Emeritus Donald P. Jacobs, Kellogg European Union GIM trip students and the Benelux alumni with hearty hors díoeuvres and even heartier conversation about topics ranging from the impending conflict, to US-EU relations, to the challenges of being a U.S. ambassador. The 35 people in attendance included some special guests, among them former Unilever chairman Franz Van den Hoven. The event was followed by an informal dinner featuring typical Belgian cuisine. A good time was definitely had by all!

Saturday May 17 was a good time to spend a weekend in Paris, with this yearís MBA Update featuring marketing guru Philip Kotler. This was an excellent occasion to refresh our marketing skills and meet Kellogg alumni from all over Europe.

On June 21, the summer solstice, we took full advantage of the longest day of the year with a friendly barbecue and Caribbean cocktail party. For the latest information, check the European alumni Web site.
