Message From the President

Welcome to Kendall College, where students turn their passions into professions.

In today’s challenging economy, it’s imperative that colleges prepare their students for rewarding and relevant careers in their chosen professions. We are committed to helping our students achieve success by creating a learning environment that develops motivated, employment-ready graduates. 
We are dedicated to experiential learning, offering a careful blend of art and science, technical ability and creativity, precise skills, and a professional attitude.

The Kendall experience is special. We understand globalization, foster multiculturalism, and provide access to an international educational experience. As part of the Laureate International Universities network of accredited colleges and universities, Kendall offers students unprecedented access to study-abroad programs and internships in Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Australia. Our downtown Chicago campus location provides students with unparalleled opportunities for work, study, and play in one of the most exciting cities in the United States. The city’s size and crossroads locale make it exceptionally diverse and vibrant. While our reach extends across the globe, we are small enough to provide each student with the personal attention and support they need to become well-prepared for their careers.

In all of our programs—BusinessHospitality ManagementCulinary Arts, and Education—you will find faculty who are passionate about their fields, about mentoring students, and about helping students achieve success. Our faculty and staff members are with our students every step of the way on their journey toward earning their college degrees, working with them as full partners in their education.

I fully understand the sacrifices and hard work required to obtain a college education. Whichever program you pursue at Kendall College, you are opening the door to a world of opportunities. I know you will enjoy learning more about Kendall's remarkable programs and the outstanding people who teach them. I encourage you to search this site and contact our admissions staff at 1-888-905-3632. We would also love to have you visit our campus so that you can experience Kendall College firsthand.

I look forward to seeing you here.
