Career Mentoring (LSB Majors)

Each major in Butler’s Lacy School of Business (LSB) is assigned a career mentor. Separate from an academic advisor, these current and former executives call upon their experience when guiding students through a structured, four-year career development program called Blueprint.

Chad Miller
Chad Miller
Lecturer in Applied Business Technology

Chad has been in IT since he was 13, teaching his first class to eight- and nine-year-old’s BASIC on Timex Sinclair Z80 computers. All the way through his undergraduate Integrated Science (ISP) and Mathematics double major at Northwestern, he worked with and around computers, landing a Systems Analyst role at Eli Lilly and Company right out of school. After six years at Lilly, he and his family took a brief side trip to Evansville, Indiana at the corporate offices of Shoe Carnival to help them out of a technical mess before returning to Indianapolis as a Systems Consultant with C/Soft (Haverstick) for a few years.

Teaching himself networking online and acquiring multiple Cisco networking certifications, Chad then jumped to a Network Engineer and Data and Networking Department Manager at Communications Products where he enjoyed projects in telecommunications and security for almost seven years. His first stint at Butler was coming on to join the IT team as a network engineer in 2006. After a few team lead roles in IT, he became the Director of Systems and Infrastructure in 2012 and then moved to Senior Director of Technology Development in 2014. In 2017, after working on a joint project, Chad left Butler to join Butler Business Consulting Group client MJ Insurance as their first Chief Information Officer. 

After guiding a complete technology restoration, and adapting MJ to remote work during the pandemic of 2020, he left after four years for a career change, starting a Masters’ degree in Educational Psychology and becoming an adjunct professor. He was hired full-time as a Lecturer in the Lacy School of Business at Butler in 2023.
