“A lot of schools are interested in diversity as it pertains to student life. But one thing that differentiates Kellogg is our understanding that diversity empowers absolutely everyone.”
— Angela Edwards-Campbell, director of the Kellogg School’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion
In a typical Kellogg class, you’ll find investment bankers, plant managers, Peace Corps volunteers, physicians, military officers and people who represent nearly every industry and job function. You’ll find men and women of many races, creeds, nations, orientations and life experiences working together and learning from one another.
In other words, you’ll find the next generation of global leaders.
Recruiters recognize Kellogg School graduates for their ability to work collaboratively in leadership roles. Researchers at our Interdisciplinary Center on the Science of Diversity recognize the powerful, measurable effects of diversity in business and in society. Whatever your background, you’ll find a strong a community at Kellogg.
All students contribute to the Kellogg School’s vibrant collaborative culture, and many take leadership positions in the 80 active clubs and organizations at Kellogg.
