As I finish my last week in the Kelley Direct MBA program, I just wanted to take a moment to say how wonderful the program has been and how proud I am to be part of it. I recently spoke on the phone with a prospective student and recapping my experience brought home how much I have accomplished. All of the learning and discovery would not have happened without the wisdom, expertise and dedication of the faculty. Names like Eric Richards, Idie Kesner, Professor Venkat, Sheri Fella, John Talbott, Joy Brown, Randy Heron among others have been instrumental in my journey through the Kelley Direct program. The classes were enriching and the 1st Year and 2nd Year Kelley Connect weeks were second-to-none experiences. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the staff and their untiring efforts (Lindsey Spoonmore, Erin Kilbride-Vincent, Mark Bridenstine, Terrill Cosgray, Jane Sears, et al) to make it all appear seamless.
Thanks to the faculty and staff for promoting, fostering and delivering a premier educational experience.
To my classmates and colleagues; Jeremy, Drew, Bryan, and Greg for being great partners (in a couple different classes). To the others I have learned so much from and enjoyed interacting with: Amy and Brittany (The P&G twins ... and, no, I won't let that go), Raghu, Patrick, Lauren, Lee, Mike, Hongo, Ana, Tamir, Katie; among others. To my brothers- and sisters-in-arms (both past and present) Clark, Jonah, Gabe, Laura and Jeff, thanks again for keeping the world safe for democracy. I have taken something from everyone I have met and studied with during my virtual stay at the corner of Fee and 10th Street.
I look forward to submitting my final paper on Saturday. Before you get too sad, I am one of the lucky ones as I will continue in the Kelley School as part of the dual degree program (MSF)!
