Boiler Business Exchange

Expanding our reach

The Krannert reach extends beyond the campus walls in West Lafayette. Last spring, we hosted a symposium in San Francisco on the “Internet of Things.” Several faculty members and practitioners took part, and the event was viewable around the world on Facebook Live for alumni who joined in virtually.

Last fall, Krannert partnered with the Boiler Business Exchange (BBE), a group dedicated to raise the profile of Purdue in Indianapolis, to hold the Krannert Leadership Speakers Series event at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. More than 650 attendees heard from Olympic gold medalist David Boudia and saw the inauguration of the first class of the BBE Business Hall of Fame.

Krannert also plays a role in educating K-12 students. The Purdue Center for Economic Education (PCEE) is celebrating its 50th year. Local elementary students operated real money businesses in the Classroom Business Enterprise, and those students showed off their creations during a spring morning in the Krannert Drawing Room. PCEE teacher advocate and Elementary Educator Advisory Committee member Gina Boyd of Mayflower Mill Elementary School in Lafayette, Indiana, received national recognition as the winner of the prestigious Council of Economic Education’s John Morton Excellence in the Teaching of Economics Award.

Thank you for your support of Purdue and the Krannert School

Moving forward

We live in a challenging world. It is my sincere belief that business can and must be a force for good. We’ve produced many of the world’s top executives and generated some of the most insightful knowledge in management and economics here at Purdue. With your help, we will ensure that our faculty and students carry on that outstanding tradition of excellence.
