Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT)

Purdue University Krannert School of Management in partnership with MLT looks forward to hosting you on campus for the MLT Pre-Application Seminar, July 28-30, 2017.

We have an exciting schedule packed with company presentations, alumni, campus tours and exclusive evening celebrations.

As part of Purdue University’s overarching and continuous initiative to promote human and intellectual diversity via a rich variety of populations and cultures, Purdue Krannert is happy to partner with MLT for this year’s Pre-Application Seminar.

In its mission to promote a new generation of diverse leaders while transforming lives, Management Leaders of Tomorrow (MLT) aligns directly with Krannert’s mission to enhance student experience while working diligently in collaboration with the Krannert Professional Development Center (KPDC) to connect boilers with some of the world’s most successful companies and Purdue alumni.

“This is a great opportunity to highlight Purdue’s diverse academic community. We’re especially honored to host this event as we prepare to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Dr. Cornell A. Bell Business Opportunity Program.”

Discover the most Vibrant Ecosystem for Tech Commercialization

Step outside of theory and actually get down to business.
Within arm’s reach of every Krannert classroom is a dynamic idea factory—a real-world, practical R&D and business-startup ‘ecosystem’—that offers an unparalleled learning experience.

Happening right on campus, this higher-education/private-enterprise ‘merger’ is where investors, manufacturing partners, entrepreneurs, researchers, professors, alumni and students just like you are continuously turning the gears of industrial evolution.

By association, Krannert students have access to incredible needs-based opportunities where they receive hands-on experience commercializing, and optimizing in real operational settings, the very latest technologies.

Hello and welcome

One of the entrances to the The Hello Walk consists of the sidewalks across Memorial Mall and along its perimeter. Plaques at either end of the east-west sidewalk between University Hall and Stewart Center encourage pedestrians to "smile and say hello to everyone you meet."

This is just one of the many traditions at Purdue University to help all that visit feel welcome and a part of the community. Purdue also has a constantly growing number of Cultural Centers where the community can share and learn about the many cultures that make up the Purdue family.
