Preparation for Whatever Comes Next

Family motivates student to graduate
For Fred Matthes, earning his college degree is more than preparing for his own future. It’s about honoring family members gone too soon — including both parents and his younger brother — and building a legacy in their memories. “My dad taught us if we worked together, we could accomplish anything,” he said.
School of Business earns AACSB reaccreditation
Experiential learning opportunities, as well as faculty committed to student success, have earned the Indiana University Kokomo School of Business a five-year reaccreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by fewer than five percent of the world’s business programs.
Externship offers inside look at business
ike Francois knew he wanted to work in banking, but he wasn’t sure what opportunities might be available to him in that career field. An Indiana University Kokomo externship solidified his career plan, and helped him set a specific goal — to be a personal banker. “I want to start as a teller during my senior year, and end up in the category of banking where you become personal to your customer, and help them manage their money,” said Francois, from Peru. “It’s a close relationship with your customer.”
Army veteran earns M.B.A.
For some who grow up in small towns, a college degree is their ticket out, a way to move to a big city. For Nathan Kring, a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) earned at Indiana University Kokomo gives him the tools to stay in the town where he grew up to help it grow and thrive. Kring, 28, currently is interim executive director of the Tipton County Economic Development Organization (TCEDO). Shortly after he finishes his M.B.A. in August, the “interim” tag comes off the title.
