Kyle Egenolf, MBA’17, is an engineer—a strong critical thinker and problem solver—but to take his career to the next level, he needed more.
“I wanted to increase the velocity of my trajectory into management, and I looked at MBA programs to either advance my career internally or to change directions,” says Egenolf. “I wanted a challenging program—one with rigorous requirements. I chose the Kelley School of Business Evening MBA Program because it is top-ranked and proved to be the most impressive.”
While earning a Kelley MBA signals you’re gaining elevated leadership and management skills, Egenolf says it also provided him a wider perspective on his own company.
“There’s a lot to be said for earning an all-encompassing perspective of business,” he says. “From the engineering side, all you see is product and production. Earning an MBA opens your eyes; you gain greater perspective for various business units and what they accomplish together.”
During his time in the Kelley Evening MBA on the IUPUI campus, Egenolf leveraged the program’s Just-In-Time Career Coaching to develop a strategy for his career. Because Kelley MBA students come from a variety of backgrounds, career coaching is designed to meet you wherever you are and help you get where you want to go next.
