  I chose the Purdue-Kelley MS-MBA because I knew the combined programs would help me acquire knowledge about and credibility in the agricultural sector of American industry – currently one of the largest US employers.

The Purdue-Kelley MS-MBA was the only realistic way I could work towards my degree and still have some of the benefits of an on-campus program. The residencies have given me a real sense of community with my fellow students and faculty. I can not say enough about the Purdue faculty. They are instructors and practitioners in their field. They make theory and practice come together, and I feel privileged to have continued access to them.

One of the best parts of the program is learning from the other students. Just comparing how you would approach something with others brings tremendous insight. We have very diverse careers, backgrounds, and beliefs that create lively, informative discussions. In just a short time, we have become a close-knit group. I will definitely keep in contact with my classmates well beyond graduation.
