Emma BrandenburgAssistant Director of the Kohl's Center for Retailing she/her/hers

As the assistant director of the Kohl’s Center for Retailing, I have the unique opportunity to work in a school that focuses on educating students to transform the consumer industry for the betterment of individuals, communities, and the planet. With an industry background in Merchandising, I have always had a passion for product, and how to best meet consumer needs to enhance the lives of all individuals. That is what drew me back to the School of Human Ecology — to develop and educate future generations on the basis of human-centered commerce.
