Earning a Kelley MBA is more than just strengthening business expertise and earning a title; it’s also gaining the confidence and breadth of experience to tackle any challenge that arises in your career.
Tiffany Shaw, MBA’08, experienced this wraparound benefit firsthand. After earning her Evening MBA at the Kelley School of Business on the IUPUI campus, Shaw led commercial operations at a clinical and forensic laboratory. While there, the company experienced a drastic reduction in Medicare reimbursements and her work – and workload – changed unexpectedly.
“Overnight we saw a drastic decrease in revenue for the same specimen volume and over the next five years, the company reduced its workforce by over 60 percent. Departments were consolidated under me and with my new responsibilities, I gained a tremendous breadth of experience,” said Shaw. “The reason I was able to succeed was in part due to the skills I gained in the Kelley Evening MBA Program. During my studies, I had taken every opportunity to do extra case work, consultancy work, externships, special projects – I had gained a wealth of experience that I could immediately put to use.”
