Emerging Markets Club plays role in bringing thought leaders to Kellogg

by Daniel Cattau

The Kellogg Emerging Markets Club (KEMC) was founded in 2002 to enhance students’ understanding of the professional opportunities available in new markets. The club’s mission also includes interacting with Kellogg School professors who are supplementing class material with business cases and examples from countries outside the Western Hemisphere.

KEMC is working with the Kellogg School Career Management Center, faculty and alumni to attract new companies and organizations to campus to recruit into emerging-market career paths. One such marquee event featured Joseph E. Stiglitz, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics, former World Bank Chief Economist and author of the bestselling Globalization and Its Discontents. KEMC invited Stiglitz to Kellogg in November to speak about issues raised in his latest book, The Roaring Nineties: A New History of the World’s Most Prosperous Decade.

Alumni with information about specific career opportunities, potential partnerships for internships or academic projects, and speaker or event ideas should contact KEMC leaders.
