GE Live with Kelley and other top MBA schools

Last week, IU was one of seven top ranked MBA schools to participate in GE Live. The event was a broadcast discussion with GE's CEO Jeff Immelt and CFO Keith Sherin and covered a variety of topics of interest to MBA students. Follow the link above to watch the video of the vent. Just enter your undergrad info when it asks you to register.

While the event was at another school, Kelley had a classroom full of students watching and had two students ask questions live on camera. It was great exposure to GE's culture and vision for the future and a unique experience that is representative of the kind of MBA student activities they offer here. GE is a great recruiter on campus and one of the top employers of MBA students from our program.

The two things they stressed most in the presentation were their green intiative and the growth of their healthcare business. These are two areas where the growth potential is huge and the need is high for students from top MBA programs.

They also stressed the need for students to have a vision for their career when they leave an MBA program so they can go full force towards that. So as you start to look at MBA admission try and think about what your career vision is and how each MBA program can help you achieve that.
