What’s in a name? Plenty! This fall the Kellogg Graduate School of Management updated its name and is now known as the J.L. Kellogg School of Management. Accordingly, KSM is the symbol Northwestern will use to identify Kellogg alumni (see Classmates Decoded on p. 79).

School administrators explain that the name change better conveys the idea that Kellogg is more than a graduate program for business training; it is a management education leader that provides services to many already in the business arena.

MBA Updates, which offer alumni educational and networking opportunities, will continue in April and May and cover such topics as influencing group decisions, entrepreneurial finance and perpetuating a family business. Details about these sessions can be found on the Kellogg Web site at www.kellogg.nwu.edu.

While scanning the Web site, alumni may check and register for a series of conferences that target particular interest groups and fields and bring business leaders from around the globe back to Kellogg. Scheduled for April are the Gay and Lesbian MBA Conference, as well as the Biotech@Kellogg, Manufacturing Business and Black Management Association conferences. May will offer the Innovating Social Change and Indian Business conferences.

When Kellogg alumni gather for the school’s reunion May 4 through 6 at the Allen Center on the Evanston campus, they’ll be able to tap the minds of current faculty members set to participate in a panel discussion on the future of business.

The roundtable is one of several academic events that make up the weekend’s activities. Other portions of the program include a career seminar, barbecue, gala dinner and traditional Special K review.
