Alumni Spotlight

Christie Cioffi

Abbott Laboratories, Columbus, Ohio

“Leadership in the Army is a lot different from the business world. At Kelley, I learned that you have to be able to influence people without relying on rank. You do that by listening closely, understanding where they’re coming from, and building mutual trust.”

Military Veterans

Leverage your military experience into business success

Leadership, teamwork, and the ability to succeed in a rapidly changing environment—as a veteran, you already bring a lot to the table. At the Kelley School, we’ll help you translate the skills you’ve gained through your military experience toward success on the corporate stage. You’ll have access to the same award-winning career services, curriculum, and faculty as all Kelley students—but the school, university, and community also offer the resources you—and your family—need as you move from the military to student life.
