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 [an MBA], I might find myself struggling to be considered for upper-level senior positions.” Like many other Ball State MBA graduates in Indiana and elsewhere, this alumnus is part of a network that connects current students to the business community.

A Ball State MBA is an excellent option for professionals navigating today's global and digital economy and provides:

  • an education from a college with an elite Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) accreditation
  • a consistent ranking in the U.S. News and World Report top 20 best online MBA programs
  • eight concentrations to choose from
  • affordability
  • flexibility

Alumna Carolyn VanSickle says the MBA provided a real-world work environment, and Jonathon Kirkwood, who launched Indiana’s first boutique biotechnology investment fund, are examples of our successful graduates.

As we celebrate One Ball State Day, a one-day donation event for friends of the university, we are thinking of priority opportunities that will enhance the Ball State MBA program:

  • case competitions, in which students collaborate to solve a business problem 
  • networking and mentoring opportunities
  • scholarship opportunities
  • travel and fees to attend conferences 

Thank you for considering a gift to support one of our priority areas—or a gift that would support your passion for another Ball State program.

 One Ball State Day makes a dramatic difference in supporting our program.
