Kelley MBAs Demonstrate Collaboration is Key

This past June more than 1,300 Consortium for Graduate Study in Management students, alumni, and corporate partners gathered in Atlanta for the 51st Annual Orientation Program & Career Forum. Kelley, 1 of 3 founding members of the Consortium, was a proud participant at the event, which offered students key career building advice from top schools and corporations. The Consortium is the largest diversity network for MBA students at 19 schools across the country. It also provides merit-based scholarships for students from underrepresented groups, as well as others who demonstrate a commitment to the Consortium’s mission of enhancing diversity in business education and leadership.

The Kelley Classes of 2017 and 2018 accept the Consortium for Graduate Management T.E.A.M Award

At this year’s Consortium awards dinner during the event, the Kelley School of Business Classes of 2017 and 2018 were given special recognition for their collaboration and coaching efforts that stood above and beyond. The Together Everyone Achieves More, T.E.A.M., Award celebrates the accomplishments of these Kelley MBA students and illustrates their commitment to the Kelley value of succeeding together rather than going it alone. Special credit can be directed to our 2017 MBA graduates, Erica Smith and Kelly Fryer. Our MBAs’ win has prefaced a lot of excitement and forward momentum for the incoming Kelley Consortium Class of 2019, which is our largest class to date with 31 new Consortium MBAs.
