Indiana State University Students Say...

Designed primarily for students early in their business careers, the MBA program at Indiana State University offers graduate-level preparation to aspiring managers and business professionals. “Small classes, great teachers, good assistantships” and an afford­able tuition add up to excellent value for students here.

Size is both a major asset and ...

Size is both a major asset and an occasional drawback at ISU. With fewer than 60 students in the entire program, students enjoy “individual attention that better prepares the students in a hands-on manner.” Small class sizes also mean great faculty accessibility; one student points out, “All of my classes have been taught by senior professors, depart­ment chairs, etc. The mentors and connections I’m gaining are fantastic.” The size of the program also helps foster a “friendly environment inside and outside the classroom.” On the downside, “Class scheduling can be difficult since limited classes are offered each semester.” Also, small programs often suffer from neglect in some areas, and ISU’s is no exception. For example, ISU “needs to continually update case studies,” an area in which students say the program is deficient. “Especially during these economic times, we need very current cases.”

The Indiana State MBA consists of 33 semester units (plus foundational course work for students who did not study business as an undergraduate; students seeking a specialized concentration must complete an additional 3 semester units), which can be completed in one year and four months of full-time study. Students wishing to continue to work while they earn their MBAs may also choose to study part-time. Through core course work and electives, the program emphasizes strategic thinking, problem-solving skills, organiza­tional change, international business, and group dynamics. Hands-on learning occurs through opportunities to assist faculty in real-world research projects in programs such as the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), which provides business planning assis­tance to start-up companies, and through consulting services to existing small businesses.
