Candidate:

Mr. Midwest

About Me:

I am pursuing admission to an online MBA program, having been with the same Fortune 50 company since I graduated undergrad in 2018 (Purdue, Finance). My focus is to continue to work for the same organization which has given me great growth opportunities thus far and do not wish to forego years of work experience to enroll in a full-time program.

Planning to enroll in Spring 2023 – I was curious about the sentiment of the board regarding my focus on Online MBA programs thus far (BU, U of I, UMass, and Kelley are my top 4), given my want to continue to work full-time and grow with my organization who has been very receptive of my career goals.

Big Life Wins:

Post MBA Goal:

Continue to learn, grow, and develop as a finance leader within my organization, with the ultimate goal of being an executive.

    Interesting to find a question about online programs! The rise of fantastic Edtech platforms are making these much more viable options for people like you who are keen to retain their existing role and career trajectory. I’m old-fashioned enough to think that there is still great value to being on campus at least some of the time and Kelley, for one, has excellent options for this to make sure you still achieve the networking and connections you need. You are quite early in your career to be fully wedded to one company, so I think you just need to be very sure that you want to stay with the same organization for at least the next 5 years or so; otherwise, I’d be encouraging you …
