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.The Indiana State MBA consists of thirty-three semester units (students seeking a specialized concentration must complete an additional three 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.

Students Say

Since 2004 when the College of Business opened the Meis Student Development Center (MSDC), students have had a dedicated facility where they can research positions using the Sycamore CareerLink electronic database, attend career-building workshops, and prepare for interviews. One student writes the following: “My experience with the Career Center is that they only provide the website for assistance in job searches and two career fairs per year. The staff does not provide any other help.” Employers inter- viewing on the ISU campus during a recent recruiting year included: AFLAC, AmSouth, Caterpillar, Dauby O’Connor & Zaleski CPA, Federated Mutual Insurance Company, Marathon Oil, Travelers, and West Point Financial/Mass Mutual.

Campus Life

Students Say

“There is always something to be involved in for anyone who wants to get involved” in ISU’s MBA community, students tell us. “Whether they are activities organized by the MBA Association (MBAA) or seminars and conferences hosted by leaders of industries, the ISU business school contributes positively towards a student’s personality and mentality,” a student observes. Students are particularly impressed with MBAA, whose events “allows students from all cultures to come together.” Students also appreciate “a lounge for MBA students to study, eat, socialize, and plan,” and it should be noted that the College of Business has moved to a new, state-of-the-art building.The ISU MBA program attracts a mix of full timers—typically “young and busy,” with some continuing directly from undergraduate study—and part timers adding school to a busy calendar that also includes a full-time job and family obligations. There is a large international contingent here, which makes for a “culturally diverse” campus. Students are “friendly and helpful,” even when there are language barriers, and “work together on projects to make sure everyone understands.” One writes: “As an international stu- dent I have never felt like a foreigner at ISU…[My classmates] always contribute posi- tively in the classroom environment as well as outside.” Academically, students describe their peers as “moderately competitive, with the occasional outstanding scholar.”
