Retail + Luxury Goods Club

History and Mission Statement

The Kellogg Retail & Luxury Goods Club (R+LG) was founded in 2004 as The Retail Club at the Kellogg School of Management by a group of students passionate about the retail industry. It quickly became one of the fastest growing clubs on campus with an increasing number of retailers actively recruiting business-school graduates into their companies. In 2009, the club expanded its mission to incorporate luxury goods due to a strong desire among Kellogg students to both learn about and pursue opportunities in the luxury goods industry. Through the years the club has developed strong relationships with corporate partners, engaged a growing group of alumni in the industry and developed events to help students learn more about careers in the field.

The mission of the Retail & Luxury Goods club is to provide the Kellogg community with information, career, and networking opportunities in the retail and luxury goods industry. Additionally, we aim to establish Kellogg as a leading source for retail and luxury goods industry expertise through seminars, workshops and career panels.
