M.B.A. in Marketing
In the graduate program, I received the 2016 Elite 50 award for community involvement and campus engagement. That was so humbling, and meeting Chancellor Paydar at the Tobias house was an incredible experience.
What degree are you working toward?
M.B.A. in Marketing with the Kelley School of Business.
Why did you choose graduate school at IUPUI?
I completed my undergraduate degree in marketing here, and I loved the faculty, staff, and programs. Campus is also conveniently located in Indianapolis, my hometown. Plus, I knew right away that it had a fantastic reputation with the MBA program ranking #6 in the nation. I know that’s a lot of different reasons, but for me, it really was the best of every world.
What has been your favorite academic accomplishment since you’ve been here?
It’s definitely a tie for me. In my undergraduate degree, my favorite accomplishment was being named the 2015 Outstanding Marketing Student and getting to sit on stage at graduation to congratulate all the other students. In the graduate program, I received the 2016 Elite 50 award for community involvement and campus engagement. That was so humbling, and meeting Chancellor Paydar at the Tobias house was an incredible experience.
What do you enjoy most about life in Indianapolis?
Let’s be honest - we have a low cost of living here. Growing up in Indianapolis, I didn’t realize how much that meant until I traveled around the States. It’s just so much more difficult to cover the cost of a college degree plus living expenses in other places.
