As the 2011-12 school year comes to a close, the Kelley School of Business Indianapolis honored its scholarship and award recipients at a breakfast at University Place Hotel. A total of 77 students were recognized this year, including Westfield native Corey Stasen, who was the recipient of two scholarships.
Stasen won the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network Scholarship, established by Bruce W. Laughlin (B.S. ’88) of the Laughlin Financial Group in Indianapolis. He also received the Victor E. Childers International Study Award, given by Childers to students admitted to overseas study programs in which they are earning credits toward an IU degree. This summer, Stasen will study finance at the University of Strasbourg in Strasbourg, France.
Stasen, who is double majoring in accounting and finance with a minor in economics, recently received recognition for being one of IUPUI’s Top 100 students for 2012. A member of the Kelley Honors Program, he has held at least one leadership position each semester since starting at IUPUI. A few examples include serving as the founding treasurer of the Capital Investment Club, floor representative and treasurer for the Ball Residence Hall Council and, most recently, being one of the four students asked to participate in the school’s recent accreditation process with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. He is also an active brother of the Delta Sigma Pi professional business fraternity where he was recognized for his outstanding pledge performance.
Stasen said he uses three words to describe his work ethic: dedication, motivation and professionalism. He looks forward to a career in the finance industry, with the ultimate goal of creating his own business. His professional goals include becoming a Certified Public Accountant and working for an accounting firm in New York or Massachusetts.
