Dave Hartman - President

In 2009 I began my education here at the Kelley School of Business. After completing my undergraduate degree in information and process management I sought to earn my master’s in information systems. While completing my undergraduate was able to develop my professional skills by holding several internships within the federal government, financial services, and consulting. On campus I have worked for Indiana University since my sophomore year. Most recently I tought microeconomics and macroeconomis discussion and am not a graduate assistant to K201. In my free time I catch up on current events and politics. Whenever I get an extended weekend I take the opportunity to go to my family’s lake to fish and boat. Upon completing my MSIS degree I intend to take a fulltime position in Chicago with KPMG’s CIO Advisory practice.
