One Ball State Day to Remember
As one Ball State MBA graduate told us, “I think that going back and pursuing your MBA proves to people that you’re driven, you’re motivated, you’re goal-oriented,” he says. “If I didn’t have [the MBA], I might find myself struggling to be considered for upper-level senior positions.”
Like so many other Ball State MBA graduates in Indiana and elsewhere, this alumnus is part of a network that helps connects current MBA students to the business community.
An elite accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International), a consistent ranking in the U.S. News and World Report top 20 best online MBA programs, five concentrations from which to choose, affordability, and the flexibility of attending online, on campus, or a blend of both make the Ball State MBA a great option for professionals navigating today’s global and digital economy.
Alumni Carolyn Van Sickle, who says the MBA provided a real-world work environment, and Jonathan Kirkwood, who launched Indiana’s first boutique biotechnology investment fund, are fitting examples of those young professionals.
How You Can Help
As we celebrate One Ball State Day, a one-day donation event for friends of the university, we are thinking of priority opportunities which we believe would boost the Ball State MBA:
- Case competitions, in which students collaborate to solve a business problem
- Networking and mentoring opportunities with peers and alumni
- Scholarship opportunities
- Attending conferences
Thank you for considering a gift to support one of our priority areas—or a gift that would support your passion for another program of the Ball State community.
We believe this is One Ball State Day that will make a dramatic difference.
