Since joining the Kelley faculty in 2009, I’ve witnessed firsthand the incredible opportunity that a Kelley education affords. It’s not only the teaching of our world-class faculty and the guidance from the top career services office in the nation – but also the chance to get involved in deep and meaningful ways with dynamic experiences outside the classroom, both locally and globally. At Kelley, you’re not just a student studying business. You are pursuing your purpose, developing your professional identity, and preparing to be a leader in your organization and community.
Whether you’re a senior serving in a club leadership role, a junior about to experience I-Core, a sophomore looking forward to your first experience traveling abroad or a freshman still learning your way around campus, I hope that you will see this new academic year as an opportunity to become even more invested in building our Kelley culture and your future as a Kelley alum. For me, it is a privilege to take on the leadership of this program. I’m convinced there is no better place for an undergraduate business student to flourish personally and professionally, but that depends on you and all of us continuing in our commitment to create a community that cultivates the talent to succeed, the humility to grow, and the tenacity to persevere. I look forward to our work ahead.
Welcome back and best wishes for a great year!
