“Teaching defines me. I love being in the classroom asking questions, getting their answers, and challenging students. Equal with that, I enjoy working with students one-on-one and in small groups. The bottom line is that I appreciate most watching them progress: improving and succeeding beyond their expectations.”

Master's (MBA & Specialized)

Faculty members from the Department of Business Law and Ethics teach a variety of graduate-level courses for students at the Kelley School and beyond. These courses play key roles in Kelley’s Full-time MBA, JD/MBA, and Graduate Accounting programs as well as in graduate programs across campus.

  • The critical thinking course, which all first-year MBA students and second-year JD/MBA students are required to take, is an essential part of the MBA core. We also offer a variety of graduate-level elective courses for students who are interested in learning more about legal risk, ethics, negotiations, dispute resolution, and other legal issues in business contexts.
  • Students in Graduate Accounting Programs take three required courses taught by business law faculty. These courses provide instruction in ethics and professional responsibility as well as legal issues in corporate and commercial finance.
  • We have a strong relationship with the School of Public and Environmental Affairs’ Arts Administration master's degree program. We offer a course that focuses specifically on legal issues in the arts. This course is required for art administration master's students and is an elective for other non-Kelley graduate students.
