Pursuing your passions can lead to great results -- especially if you figure out a way to combine two of them.
Mark Munz, BS’09, tied together his love of music and entrepreneurship to start his own business repairing and maintaining electric and acoustic guitars.
“My Kelley education absolutely helped me to start my own company,” said Munz. “It gave me a foundation to work from and provided the education to gain experience as well.”
Munz majored in marketing while at Kelley Indianapolis. His first job out of college was at Harrison College, where he worked as a certified financial aid analyst. He left there to take a position as an operations analyst at Angie’s List, and now, he works as a solution advisor at Salesforce. During this time, he also received his master’s degree from Trine University and started his company, Munz Fretted Instruments Inc.
For current students, Munz says don’t be afraid to explore new things.
