Kelley MBA Students Put Their Skin in the Game as Healthcare Consultants for the Moffitt Cancer Center

Four online MBA student teams from all over the U.S. lead by Professor Shannon Threlked from the Kelley School’s Bloomington campus just returned to their homes after spending a weekend together in Tampa, Florida. Two Kelley faculty coaches, Sam Misar and John York, joined them at the Moffitt Cancer Center where they met the center’s business leaders including COO Jack Kolosky, who leads this project for the center.

Each of the four student teams were tasked with addressing a specific problem or evaluating a business opportunity for the center, and this weekend trip was the students’ chance to meet their clients in-person, tour the facility, and network with Moffitt’s leadership team. The students especially appreciated the opportunity to meet face-to-face and took the time to strengthen their relationships with classmates as well.
