Who

A group of committed KGI students and alumni who wish to serve in an ambassador role for the school. The purpose of the program is to create a cadre of students who are willing and able to represent KGI at various events, tours, webinars, panels, and person-to-person interaction. In return, these students will earn important marketing, communication, and leadership skills to be used in a future career, all while showing pride in their school.

Why

In order to grow the KGI student population, more school representatives are needed. We need willing and able students to make phone calls, conduct webinars, serve on various panels, and represent KGI at events where KGI regular staff and faculty are unable. Having a student speak into their own experiences helps provide a student’s perspective on the school and the various degrees at KGI.
