Student Life

Ninety-seven percent of students are enrolled part time at IUS. About half the students have both full-time jobs and families, while “the other half are a younger group that are working full-time but finishing education goals before starting families.” No matter what their age and background, students are “career oriented” and “passionate about the learning experience” at IUS. While competitive in the workplace, students are “friendly and interested in networking” with their classmates. Here, students “come together and complete group projects and presentations.”“Most students work full time and lead busy lives outside of school,” so they “don’t take part or really have much interest in any on-campus activities.” Even coursework can be a juggling act for some students. A current MBA candidate admits, “Group work is dif­ficult for students like me who work 45-50 hours a week and have a family.” While “there aren’t a lot of school activities to get involved in,” students occasionally stick around campus for professional development or networking events. For example, “internation­ally acclaimed business speakers regularly speak at our campus.”

Career

Indiana University Southeast is located in the Louisville metropolitan area, close to Indianapolis, so students have access to a couple of major job markets. While a few stu­dents are actively looking to make a career change, most plan to leverage the graduate education at their current job. IUS students are generally “young professionals looking to obtain skills and knowledge to help them move into management positions.” Looking toward their future, students note that the school’s “alumni are successful,” and many continue to maintain contact with the business program after graduation. Those looking for a new position can take advantage of the Indiana University Southeast Career Services office, which offers online job boards, career counseling, and resume and cover letter revisions. They also host several University-wide job fairs on campus. Graduate students note that, “The career development office tends to focus on the under¬grads.” Plus, “most of the trainings they hold are during the day, so those of us who work aren’t able to attend.” No matter what their future plans, students agree that, “more career days or networking opportunities would be advantageous” to the entire MBA program.

Students Say

With a strong local reputation and a low in-state price tag, savvy business students say Indiana University Southeast is an “excellent value” for an MBA. The combination of “reasonable tuition rates and a flexible part-time program” makes IUS particularly attractive to working professionals. Plus, some “classes are offered at satellite locations for the convenience of students.” There are more than 200 MBA candidates in the pro­gram, and IUS maintains a surprisingly intimate academic environment. Believe it or not, “the Director of Graduate Business Programs makes personal phone calls to each student upon enrollment and throughout their academic careers.” “Navigating the program is very easy,” and the administration is generally responsive to student concerns. For exam­ple, “when classes are full, they can add a couple of openings to keep from disrupting an entire schedule or add additional times or nights.”Consummate professionals, “professors are outstanding and treat students with respect.” Students enjoy almost every class they take at IUS, as the professors “truly love the subjects they teach, and their enthusiasm is contagious.” The school recruits faculty from the local business community, and many “professors come with a track record of professional success in their respective business fields.” Perfect for current professionals, “materials are relevant to an evolving job market,” and the school excels at “making the newest technologies and software available to students.” While Indiana University offers a “well-rounded MBA” in advanced business topics, some feel “IUS could offer more variety in its elective choices.”Those balancing academic, professional, and personal pursuits are happy to report that “classes are challenging but not overwhelming” at IUS, and professors are there to sup­port their students every step of the way. A student explains, “Once challenging expec­tations are set, instructors work with students on reaching them.” “Class sizes are small,” and professors “care about their students’ success.” Most will “bend over backward to help you out,” when work or scheduling difficulties interfere with school. They are also “available outside of class time” if students need additional help with the material. Most students of this program “appear to be five or more years out from undergraduate stud­ies and bring a wealth of experience from the real world into the classroom.” Drawing on this wealth of wisdom, professors promote classroom discussion, and “there are a lot of group projects” required within the curriculum.
