Dean Blount Rings NYSE Closing Bell

On January 15, 2011, in Labor Economics, by Jeremy C Wilson

On Friday, January 14, Dean Sally Blount of the Kellogg School of Management went to New York to visit the NYSE.  Together with the long time Kellogg alumni, and other alumni in the financial services industry, the Dean had the unique and memorable opportunity to take part in ringing in the closing bell.

By many accounts, the movement of the financial market has been one of the most defining stories of the last couple of years.  First because of the recession, and now because the financial market is on the rise again. Thanks to the joint effort by the Kellogg School of Management and Kellogg’s very own Alumni Club of New York, Kellogg had a chance to participate in the story.

Not only was this a fun opportunity for Dean Blount, but it’s also be good for Kellogg, as it should help to continually solidify the school’s ties to the finance industry.
