Engagement Opportunities

We welcome the opportunity to partner with you and your company for additional opportunities to engage with Krannert students. While our Krannert Career Treks are a unique opportunity for recruiters to showcase their company onsite while meeting current students, there are also various methods of company engagement while on campus in addition to presentations and career fairs. Our staff is able to assist with company-hosted coffee hours, speaking events, conferences, Experiential Learning Projects (ELI), case competitions, student clubs and many more activities.

CAREER TREKS

Career Treks create educational and professional touch-points for employers in cities across the globe to meet Krannert School of Management students. The one day to week-long treks provide an opportunity for students to connect and network with top business companies and professionals, and learn about a company’s mission, values, and company culture.  Treks also serve as additional recruiting opportunities for students interested in internships or full-time positions.  Past cities visited have included Atlanta, Chicago, New York City, Portland, and San Francisco.
