We now send an annual email update to members of our mailing list. This annual update profiles students, alumni, faculty, and recruiters.
More regular communications such as select industry articles, promotions, job postings, faculty featured in the news, and updates are posted on our Kilts Center Linked In group, a subgroup of the LinkedIn Chicago Booth Alumni and Student Network.
