As an alumnus of the Indiana University football team, Jacob Bailey, MSIS’18, knows the power of teamwork. That power—and his MS in Information Systems (MSIS) degree from the Kelley School of Business—has taken him from the gridiron to Grant Thornton.
Jacob was set to graduate with a four-year degree from Kelley, but his football commitment required an additional year at IU. Jacob seized the extra time to further his education: “I saw a big opportunity to get an MSIS degree on top of the technology management foundation I gained as an undergraduate.”
The MSIS program demonstrated to Jacob the value of teamwork in the business world. “I was part of a team from day one. I sat in every class with my team, and I worked with my team for at least half of the assignments. As a whole, it was a great learning experience that closely mimics the real world of business.”
