Brand-Building Activities

Corporate partners of the Center are invited to participate in activities that teach students about retailing and increase student awareness of opportunities in retailing. These activities generate dual returns. First, they enhance your presence on campus, connecting you with potential future employees. Second, they ensure that your future employees are as knowledgeable, skilled, and ready for the workplace as possible.

Examples of these activities include the Target Excellence in Business Leadership Program; case studies presented by Macy’s, Inc.; guest lectures by executives from American Eagle Outfitters, Gap, and Kohl’s; business simulations sponsored by Sears Holdings and Bridgestone/Firestone; and a 10-week, in-class stock project—sponsored by Abercrombie & Fitch—in which students manage a $500,000 portfolio to learn how shareholder value affects retail strategy and vice versa. We can partner with you to:

  • Develop electronic teaching tools using industry software for our students to use in our Sears Retailing Lab and Classroom
  • Develop case studies for Kelley retailing courses
  • Speak to retailing classes or the whole School through our Executive Speaker Series
  • Bring students to your headquarters for an in-depth case project that addresses a business challenge your company is facing or for professional skills development
  • Participate in a career panel or career fair
  • Develop an internship curriculum
  • Develop a new, unique activity that contributes to retailing education and meets your company’s needs
