Krannert School of Management

Purdue University's Krannert School of Management focuses its strategy and mission on two central themes: STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and globalization. The school complements classroom learning with programs at the undergraduate and graduate level that arm students with personal and professional development skills that they will be able to utilize throughout their careers. Krannert alunni head some of the world's largest corporations, and the school consistently produces global leaders with analytical insight.

What Current Students Say See All 5 Comments >

The diversity at Krannert allows students to begin envisioning what the "real world" will be like when we leave Purdue. The professors encourage both individual and teamwork, and they foster an environment where asking questions and discussing the situation at hand is accepted and encouraged.
