Whats 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 schools reunion May 4 through
6 at the Allen Center on the Evanston campus, theyll 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 weekends
activities. Other portions of the program include a career seminar, barbecue,
gala dinner and traditional Special K review.
