Integration is the focus of business programs at Indiana University—Bloomington’s Kelley School of Business. The goal during the first semester of the full-time M.B.A. program is to weave together every business discipline to broaden the students’ perspectives on business. Leadership is a theme that is prevalent within the school, and this theme is implemented during the first semester when students are placed into teams of four and must work together to complete projects. The Kelley Leadership Speakers Series brings influential leaders and business executives to campus to discuss a myriad of topics with students.
Along with the full-time M.B.A., students can also pursue an online M.B.A. or a Ph.D. or can complete a specialized master’s degree in information systems or accounting. Joint degrees are offered in conjunction with the Maurer School of Law, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Telecommunications.
Students of the Kelley School of Business gain much of their career guidance through experiential learning, such as Bloomington Brands, which immerses the students in real-world business problems in the classroom to prepare for life outside of the school. Through Kelley Academies, students partner with a professor who is an expert in their career area and can guide them through post-graduate decisions. There are also roughly 18 clubs and 20 committees for Kelley students to participate in on campus.
Alumni of the Kelley School include John Chambers, president and CEO of Cisco Systems, Inc.; Harold Arthur Poling, former president and CEO of Ford Motor Co.; and Jimmy Wales, cofounder of Wikipedia.
