Krannert Leadership Speaker Series

Each year, the Krannert School honors its top alumni at its signature event, the Krannert Leadership Speakers Series. In addition to comments from the Krannert Dean and Purdue President, alumni awards are presented to Krannert graduates. The event also includes a keynote presentation, with past headliners ranging from Tim Russert to Doris Kearns Goodwin to Steve Forbes. This year’s event will be held in Indianapolis and will include induction of the third class of the Boiler Business Exchange Hall of Fame, as well as “a night of champions” featuring Mike Bobinski, Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics; Ukari Figgs, Basketball Champion and Mechanical Engineer; Robbie Hummel, Basketball All-American and Broadcaster; Matt Light, Super Bowl Champion and Humanitarian. Net proceeds from the event benefit Krannert scholarships.
