If you have already received your confirmation email, please send us a message at Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that late notice reschedules of orientation will be permitted.
What should I bring to orientation? How should I dress?

You’ll need to bring emergency contact information, bank information to set up direct deposit of your pay, and documentation for the I-9 verification process (please see the I-9 acceptable documents form attached to your offer letter).

Indiana University Winners

This March, 60 students and advisors from universities across the country arrived at the Kohl’s corporate office to compete in our first Kohl’s Invitational case competition. These students shared their visions of how Kohl’s can better understand, target and cater to the millennial generation. They brought great ideas on how to use digital concepts to enhance the Kohl’s experience—from Kohl’s Kiosk updates to virtual dressing rooms, Kohl’s on Snapchat and much more.

After a preliminary round, the competition was narrowed to three finalists—Indiana University, Penn State University, and Texas State University. These three teams presented their recommendations in front of judges Rick Schepp  (Sr. EVP-HR & General Counsel), Dan Newman (EVP of Planning & Allocation), and Krista Berry (EVP Chief Digital Officer), and an audience of over 100 Kohl’s associates, leaders, and student peers.

Despite the pressure, all three teams delivered presentations that exceeded expectations and wowed everyone in the room. In the end, Indiana University came out on top and not only took home bragging rights, but also received $5,000!

Between presentations, the students had the opportunity to tour the corporate office, preview the Kohl’s Trend Design Open House, and record interviews reflecting on their experience.

    Competition Rules


    Teams have approximately four weeks to research, analyze and develop a set of action plans, recommendations, and prepare their presentations.

    Competition rules allow the use of textbooks, notes and the internet for research purposes.

    Discussion of the case with outside sources, faculty or advisors is not permitted.

    The University Team Advisor may assist their team prior to the case distribution and provide recommendations such as researching Kohl’s, gathering ideas, and case study best practices. However, once the case is distributed, the Team Advisor is not permitted to help the students work on the case or give any ideas to help their team.

    Teams are required to support their findings with a PowerPoint presentation.

    All team members must actively participate in the presentation phase.
