Brian Shockney, COO, Indiana University Health Bloomington: “In a business school, one of the things that I appreciated was the practical education that we got and the experience we got outside the classroom. I had several classes, I would say about 50% of my business classes, had some out of classroom experiential connection. But we were sent out into the community for a semester as well as our classroom time to work with the small business administration to help businesses who had loans with the small business administration and help them turn things around or give them helpful hints on how they could improve their business or grow their business and, you know, you’re a young kid, you’ve got all this background in just didactic, you really don’t have any experience in running your own business but it was a very good experience for us to go into those businesses and be welcomed for one but number two to be able to have a wide open view of their checkbook and their operations and be able to do a case study and really learn about the ins and outs of business. And, that was…I can name three businesses we were sent to…three different classes…where we were able to learn and…whether they were I U Kokomo graduates or friends of I U Kokomo or whatever, those businessmen and women were very open to allowing us in their businesses to learn. Take the didactic knowledge and apply it and make some recommendations.

“So how has that affected me? Well, I do the same now. So I have two fellows that we have that I’m…that just graduated with their master’s program that I’m helping mentor, giving them some practical knowledge and opportunity to do some study. It was so valuable to me that every year I’ve tried to have some link with the University students – a capstone course or mentor a fellow or a student in a master’s program or undergraduate program.”
