The Krannert Military Association exists to serve veteran and active duty military Krannert School of Management students. The association provides support to veterans and current military members who seek to improve their management knowledge and enhance their leadership opportunities as undergraduate, graduate, and non-degree Krannert students.
As a top-ranked university for military veterans and a world-leading research institution, Purdue University is perfectly positioned to help students from military backgrounds take the next step in their careers. The Krannert School has a long history of developing leaders for military career success as well as elevating the civilian career outlook for those looking to transition out of the military.
The Krannert Military Association's mission is to enhance and contribute to Krannert military students’ academic and career success.
The support group provides networking, professional development, and social opportunities that honor and build upon veteran and military students’ backgrounds and experiences.
Additional benefits to military students include:
A primary role of the Krannert Military Association is to help military personnel transition back to civilian life. As a Krannert student you will work with the association and the school’s career services office, the Krannert Professional Development Center (KPDC), to identify transferrable skill sets.
For example, those of you who have served as executive officers in a company of infantry know that you have managed 250 men and women. Civilian employers may not realize what being an executive officer means – we will help you translate your skills and experiences into language industry professionals will understand and appreciate.
We know that your military experiences, including deployments to combat and overseas assignments, make you decisive, committed, and highly ethical employees. Let’s work together to tell the world.
“Having my professors get to know me and take interest in my training was amazing. I loved the support and being able to feel comfortable enough to ask them for help.”
