Topics in Business Law: Kelley LEADS
- Prerequisite: None
This experimental course at IU's Kelley School of Business entitled Kelley LEADS (Law, Ethics, And Decisionmaking Strategies) provides students with an opportunity to work on a serious of consulting projects for the Hoosier Social Impact Fund (HSIF), a non-profit community loan fund created by last year's class that seeks to promote sustainable economic development by providing access to business capital and providing business education, training, and consulting services to underserved populations that do not have access to traditional sources of capital or business support. The class provides students with an opportunity to gain hands-on education and real-world experience by applying their business education and training to manage all aspects of HSIF's operations; craft and implement effective financial, managerial, marketing, accounting, lending, and other business policies and practices; and work with clients to help them build sustainable businesses that contribute to the growth of prosperous and thriving communities. In the process, students develop valuable professional skills, grow as individuals, and become engaged and leading members of their communities.
