Welcome


The Kellogg Private Equity Club is one of Kellogg’s most active professional clubs, providing resources and support to a community of students looking to pursue a career in the field.

Whether entering Kellogg with a background in private equity or looking to transition into the industry, we are committed to helping students achieve their career goals through programming that accelerates the job search process, facilitates engagement with the professional community, and strengthens industry knowledge and skills.

As private equity evolves and firms increasingly drive value through growth and operational improvement of portfolio companies, we pride ourselves on providing students with unique learning and experiential opportunities in both investing and operating aspects of private equity.
