Retail + Luxury Goods Club

History and Mission Statement

The Kellogg Retail Club was founded in 2004 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 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.
