Give to the Center
The Kilts Center for Marketing relies heavily on alumni and friends to support our programs and events since we do not use tuition dollars. Your gifts and endowments can be used to support:
- Marketing Fellowship Program - This unique program combines $25,000 in annual scholarship assistance for two years with mentoring. The mentoring component provides promising marketing students the opportunity to interact with prominent marketing professionals, giving them an edge over their peers when they enter the job market upon graduation.
- Marketing Data Center- Chicago Booth is a pioneer in the study of data from micro-marketing research. The Kilts Center maintains a comprehensive set of scanner data for academic research use worldwide:
- ERIM Database - The ERIM database contains data collected by the now-defunct ERIM division of A.C. Nielsen on panels of households in two mid-sized midwestern cities.
- Dominick’s Database - The Dominick’s database contains nine years of store-level data on the sales of more than 3500 UPCs (universal product codes).
- Distinguished Visiting Faculty Chair - Visiting faculty enrich research and academic discourse and enhance Chicago Booth’s visibility worldwide.
- Doctoral Fellowships in Marketing - Chicago Booth is able to influence future marketing scholars and expand its global brand name for marketing. Past fellow have gone on to top business schools around the world including Stanford, Wharton, London Business School, University of Michigan, and University of Toronto.
- Marketing Workshop Series - Weekly research workshops throughout the academic year, open to the Booth community, feature presentations by top faculty from around the world. The chance to hear from outside faculty stimulates the intellectual rigor for which Chicago is know around the world.
- Annual Marketing Conference - The creation of an annual conference where students, alumni, and faculty interact with top marketing professionals would increased our visibility and brand name capital. The conference theme would change annually but would reinforce the Chicago approach to marketing.
