Purdue University Krannert Alumni Mark Kent returned to speak at the Krannert Executive Forum.

purdue-krannert-investment-forum-speaker-mark-kentThe Krannert Executive Forum is a management class (MGMT 40100) that features top-level executives and community leaders sharing their experiences with students. It has been a unique and valuable addition to Krannert’s management curriculum since 1973.

The Forum is designed to provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas and discussion of topics and issues facing business and management education between students and leaders who have achieved high levels of success and recognition. These exchanges are directed toward an understanding of problems and solutions, opportunities and the need for educational preparation of future business leaders. Dialogue develops that gives the students, faculty, and business leaders a better understanding of themselves, their responsibilities and their relationships with each other.

This one-hour class meets each Friday at 11:30 am the Krannert Auditorium. The class offers students from every school on campus a practical business and management perspective seldom found in other courses. Master’s degree students and faculty are also encouraged to attend, and the Forum is open to the public as seating permits.

The Krannert Executive Forum continues to be a meeting place for the exchange of ideas and thus an excellent vehicle for improved understanding between the executive suite and the academic classroom.
