What Our Graduates Are Saying
"When I entered the Romain College of Business, I never expected to pursue a career in law. However, when my plans changed, the RCOB Faculty and Staff helped my prepare for a future legal career. This helped me receive a Full-Ride scholarship to my first-choice law school. Everything truly does have a business side." - David Bradley '22, accounting, Juris Doctorate (JD) candidate at IU McKinney School of Law.
Why Business Administration
"My business degree helped give me an understanding of managing projects and collaborating with other people. It has served to help me be an effective communicator with my clients as well as with my team at work." - Elizabeth Gray '19, business administration, Technical Sales Specialist.
Why Computer Information Systems
"Seek internship opportunities, keep your skills up to date, actively seek opportunities, take skill assessments. IT is much more than hardware, networking, etc. I definitely wish I knew that IT was more than the stereotypical idea of what IT is when I was in college." - Jared Hermayer '15, CIS, IT Senior Business Analyst at Berry Global.
Why Computer Science
"If I could give any advice to someone about to graduate, it would be to apply to as many positions as you can find! My degree has helped me move up within the organization significantly quicker than I thought I would." - Anthony Ellis '20, computer science, Application Analyst at Union Hospital.
"My job entails analyzing the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange as well as the economic landscape as a whole and advising investors accordingly. The economics classes I took at USI fully equipped me with both qualitative and quantitative skills required for my job." - Florence Takaendesa '17, Mathematics and Economics, Data Analyst.
"In my undergrad years I didn’t realize how many different finance career paths there were in corporate finance. My advice to students is to have an open mind about your career path and use your early career years to explore everything that peaks your interest, as well as finding a great company that fits your personality, supports your development and positions you for success!" - Isabel Navarro '17, finance, Finance Supervisor, Commercial Sales Forecasting and Demand Planning at Abbott Laboratories.
"I am currently a fourth-year medical student at Ross University School of Medicine. I used my business degree, along with extra biology and chemistry courses, to obtain a Master's degree in Biology from IUPUI, which led to me getting accepted into Ross University School of Medicine. I am now completing my final elective rotations at Cleveland Clinic Florida in Weston, FL and will be graduating in May of 2023 with my MD degree and plan to pursue a residency in either anesthesiology or internal medicine." - Sean Flannagan '16, management.
"My advice for new Marketing Professionals is to sample different industries! The beauty of marketing is that there are several job types in several different industries, so discover what you prefer while you're still new to the professional world. Don't settle for a job because it was the first opportunity, easy to find, etc. I currently work at an international beauty company, getting to work on many different brands, and wouldn't have my role if I hadn't been a little selfish and ventured out." - Storri Gadau '18, marketing (minor in management), Marketing & Communications.
