    Add Experience through Business Outreach Centers

    Our On-Campus MBA students consistently win national awards, working in teams on business case studies through the Small Business Institute in our Management Services Group. Case study projects involve businesses such as the Jimmy Stewart Airport and Indiana Regional Medical Center.

    Our business outreach centers give you opportunities to add experience in areas such as facilities planning, business research surveys, social media marketing, accounting systems, operations management, and competitive analysis—helping you move up in your field or change your career path.

    The six centers and institutes in the MSG contribute to the economic vitality of the region while offering you the chance to gain professional experience through business consulting projects or paid internships.

    If you are interested, you’ll meet with the MBA advisor, Professor Krish Krishnan (krishnan@iup.edu), to discuss your goals and the opportunities you may be interested in so that a good match with a local business can be pursued.
