'Tune out the noise, and follow your heart,' Rosenfeld urged the graduates. She also warned against timidity. 'Don't be afraid to take risks,' she said.

Former Kellogg School Dean Dipak C. Jain struck a similar note at the Executive MBA convocation ceremony on June 12.

'Education is what you make of it. Do something great,' said Jain, the Sandy and Morton Goldman Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies. 'The challenge ahead of you is never greater than the force behind you. Know that Kellogg will always be there for you.'

The Class of 2010 expressed its thanks to Kellogg with generous class gifts. The Full-Time MBA class pledged $250,145 toward a future virtual collaboration studio, while the Part-Time MBA class pledged $73,961 toward the renovation of classrooms at Wieboldt Hall. Members of EMP-77 pledged $30,621 toward the EMP emergency fund for loss of tuition support and unrestricted program fund, while EMP-78 pledged $45,272 for case studies, scholarships, career services and the EMP unrestricted program fund.
