By Greg Mattes, First-year MBA, Entrepreneurship
I am currently sitting at the Indian School of Business (ISB) in Hyderabad, India, where I will be attending the Graduate Business Conference that includes representatives from many of the top MBA programs from around the world. The Kelley MBA program has challenged and given me opportunities in ways that I could have never imagined from any MBA program. With the resources at Kelley, I have been able to achieve everything that have wanted to accomplish and then some.

I came to Kelley as a career switcher; the only problem was that I didn’t know what career I wanted to switch into. The support that Kelley Graduate Career Services (GCS) provides in terms of professional reflection and development has been invaluable. I have found my passion for working in K-12 education and will be working for the Tennessee Department of Education this summer—it was Kelley that uniquely positioned me to make this dramatic career shift.
I didn’t quit my job with NASA at the Johnson Space Center so that I could have a mediocre MBA experience. Kelley has allowed me to ignite my career and send me in new, exciting, and successful directions—such as going to conferences in India!
