Kelley Direct students begin their online MBA for various reasons. In this series, you’ll meet some of our students and learn why they have decided to take this step and enroll with Kelley Direct! Michelle Braun, a Neuropsychologist with Ascension Healthcare, shares how she thinks the Kelley Direct program can help her meet some big goals.
What are her career highlights? “I was named a “Woman of Influence” for 2022 by Success Magazine—an entrepreneur-focused publication. I’m a national leader in brain health and Alzheimer’s reduction with a public health focus as well as an author of the book “High Octane Brain.”
Why did you choose Kelley Direct? “I have big plans to create innovative brain health products for older adults. I have the scientific skills for designing these products. It is clear that Kelley Direct can provide the business skills I need to be successful with this venture.”
What are you looking forward to most? “Kelley On Campus was critical for me when deciding to start the online MBA program. Like others, I need the convenience of a mostly online program. But I also really value building my network with so many different people. I’m so excited to immerse myself with my classmates as we become Hoosiers at the start of the program.”
Did anything surprise you about Kelley as you completed the admissions process? “It was very important for me to learn that all of the Kelley Direct staff and faculty are true IU employees in Bloomington. Nothing is outsourced or contracted. I know I’m getting the high-quality experience I want from my MBA.”
