About Purdue and Krannert Center

Purdue University is located in West Lafayette, Indiana, 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis and 125 miles southeast of Chicago. The Purdue University Airport no longer provides commuter air service. It's easier to fly into the Indianapolis International Airport (IND airport code) rather than Chicago's O'Hare Airport. Ground transportation between Purdue University and the Indianapolis International Airport is available through Lafayette Limo or Star of America.  Shuttle Service as well as various car rental agencies are based at the airport.

Lafayette Limo offers a private shuttle service and a share-a-ride service between Purdue's West Lafayette campus and Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. Express Air Coach also provides ground transportation between Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and Purdue. The shuttle offers two daily round trips and one round trip on Saturday and Sunday. Call ahead to reserve your seat (765-743-3120). 

Krannert Center

VPMP sessionThe Krannert Center for Executive Education and Research is a modern multipurpose facility designed specifically for executive education programs. Two large arena-style classrooms and many smaller meeting rooms provide an ideal setting for classroom instruction and group discussion. Access to interactive computer facilities is available in every room of the center. Each study group will have its own "break-out" study room, equipped with computers, to facilitate business case analysis and preparation for classes. The Krannert Center adjoins the Krannert Building, location of the Krannert Graduate School of Management, which has one of the finest business libraries in the nation.

The main lounge in the Krannert Center is a comfortable place for informal gatherings, receptions, guest speakers, and formal banquets. In addition, a fully equipped student lounge and a capable support staff assure a congenial working environment. Catered lunches are served in the Krannert Center dining room.

Two large classrooms - one seating 50, the other seating 70 - are fan-shaped and tiered to foster interchange among the participants and instructors. Each is equipped with the lastest communication technology, including the direct projection of computer output and network computer access. The students and instructors are provided with the best equipment for receiving, displaying, and communicating information and using data for solving today's business problems.

While on Purdue's campus, program participants stay in Purdue's Memorial Union Club conveniently located across the street from the Krannert Center. The Union Club offers full-service, hotel-style accommodations and a variety of dining choices. Participants also have access to the recreational facilities of the University.
