CIBER Focus: Examining Indiana's Economy and Discussing Relevancy in Education with Associate Dean, Philip Powell
Today Dean Powell and I discuss the local economy in Indianapolis, where we are now in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and Indiana’s significance as a global leader in the export of goods. We will also discuss business education and Kelley’s experiential learning programs, which allow students to have greater impact in their local communities and around the globe.
