Creating My Own Major

First-year MBA, Business Marketing Academy

One of the things I love about Kelley is the fact that I can design my own major. I am pursuing Strategic Human Resource Management post MBA, which is a less traditional path for a Kelley student. However, by creating my major, I am able to get a strong business foundation while also taking part in classes that speak to my future industry. 

Before coming to Kelley, I worked within the financial services and advisory arena. As a career switcher, I knew it was imperative that I craft my curriculum very carefully to best utilize my degree. In choosing classes, I have had the opportunity to consult with Kelley Alum, professors, and my academic adviser to create a tailored learning experience that will build skillsets that I will not only need during my summer internship but that I will also need in my fulltime transition into HR.

 I find the guidance from Kelley resources to be extremely helpful because they have encouraged me to expand my classes to include courses within the other schools at Indiana University. For example, I plan to take a class at the Maurer School of Law to learn about labor laws and I also plan to take a class at the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) to learn about labor relations. In addition, I will take classes at Kelley within management, leadership, and strategy which will give me a holistic learning experience. Overall, I am very pleased with the ability to create my own major and the support I have received while doing so.
