Purdue Global commencement celebrates multigenerational success

Online MBA program helps create new opportunities for the Gramlich family

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – What does it mean to be a role model to four kids under the age of 10?

For parents Michelle and Shane Gramlich of St. George, Utah, it means you can never give up. Persistence becomes more than a goal – it becomes a family rallying cry. Wanting to achieve more and advance in their careers, the couple both earned MBAs from Purdue Global.

With busy schedules and overwhelming obligations, school could have been difficult. Fortunately, Michelle and Shane looked to an example working right alongside them: Shane’s father, Jeff Gramlich, who also graduated from Purdue Global with his MBA.

Achievements tally up to two generations getting three MBAs, all earning 4.0 GPAs and all looking to pursue doctoral degrees. The ambitious family was able to travel together to celebrate their success at Purdue Global’s Winter 2023 Commencement, which was held Feb. 25, 2023, in Anaheim, California.

Purdue Global is Purdue’s online university for working adults.
