  • Purdue-affiliated Brightlamp launches smartphone app that can rapidly monitor the brain for signs of concussion
    The Brain Injury Research Institute reports that high school athletes who sustain a concussion are three times more likely to sustain a second concussion, and a lack of proper diagnosis and management of concussion may result in serious long-term consequences, or risk of coma or death. Brightlamp Inc., a Purdue University-affiliated startup co-founded by Krannert grad Michael Heims and Purdue engineering and science alumnus Kurtis Sluss, has launched an application that lets a smartphone user quickly record data that can be sent to a medical trainer or other medical professional who can objectively determine if that person has sustained any neurological disturbance, including concussion, with potentially serious long-term health repercussions.
  • Krannert undergrad program ranked #11 for ROI among nation's top business schools
    The 45 million Americans currently navigating paying off federal student loans have a collective $1.5 trillion in debt, a total that climbs every year. Even so, an undergraduate degree is one of the most important contributors to financial stability and achieving a higher socio-economic level. That makes attending an elite institution like Purdue's Krannert School — ranked #11 by Poets & Quants for return-on-investment among the nation’s top business schools — a sound decision if either goal is a priority.

Turner Professor of Management and research director of the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Organizational Behavior/Human Resources
