Advice, Direction, Mentorship
The School of Business at Kendall College is strengthened by the significant involvement of senior executives and consultants from the Chicagoland area and beyond. Many of our members have built successful careers in areas of business where service truly matters, from advertising to banking, foodservices management to entrepreneurship, consulting to healthcare.
These professionals help us shape curriculum to keep pace with an ever-changing business climate. In addition, members offer their observations as to the knowledge gaps and challenges entry-level applicants and career-builders face.
