NEMRA Sales and Marketing Leadership Program at Kellogg

November 27-29, 2018

Kellogg is consistently rated as the #1 global leader amongst MBA programs for its innovative and practical approach to the Marketing and Sales functions.

“The NEMRA Executive Education Program at Kellogg University was an experience unlike any I’ve had in my career in the electrical industry. The caliber of the instruction, the accommodations, the course curriculum and the years of industry experience in that room. It’s a 3 day education in selling you couldn’t get anywhere else. It was a privilege to be able to attend and I will value it forever.”    NEMRA member & 2017 Kellogg Graduate
