Small School, Giant Leaps

To paraphrase Neil Armstrong — the first man on the moon and one of 25 alumni in Purdue’s ‘Cradle of Astronauts’ — every giant leap begins with a small step. That’s why Krannert will give you the chance and courage to step outside your comfort zone.

As one of the smaller business schools inside a university of its size and a steadfast, team-oriented approach to competition, Krannert opens numerous doors for leadership opportunities while also giving students the nudge to walk through them.

We’re proud to maintain a student-professed family feel, a mutually encouraging atmosphere of competition, and a highly collaborative classroom model that is reflective of the way today’s successful companies operate and solve problems. You’ll grow with fellow students inside a learning structure that replicates the professional diversity and unpredictability of real business workplaces.

At the same time, Purdue will place you in the heart of one of the nation’s most spirited college towns. You’ll experience the excitement of everything the Big Ten has to offer — including access to a global and highly engaged alumni network that dramatically enhances learning and career opportunities — along with the more intimate, community feel of Krannert itself.

And when you’re ready for a road trip or crave a more metropolitan vibe than one of America’s top-ranked college towns, it’s only a 60-mile drive south from West Lafayette to Indianapolis or 120 miles north to Chicago — two cities that offer virtually any entertainment fix you desire.
