Earn the same highly-ranked degree as graduates of the Kelley full-time Master of Business Administration program, taught by the same respected faculty—but with the ultimate flexibility that only Kelley Direct can provide.

Kelley Direct offers the most flexible online MBA program delivered by a top-20 business school.

The Kelley Direct MBA program focuses on general administration, covering topics including: 

  • Business law and ethics 
  • Economics
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Operations
  • Information technology
  • Project management

With nearly 60 online courses to choose from, you can customize your MBA to match your career focus.

Only 39 of the 51 credit hours needed for your MBA are required classes—round out your degree with electives suiting your interests, including experiential options such as Kelley’s Washington Campus program or in-country courses including onsite learning in China, India, and other rapidly emerging economies.

The program starts with a Kelley Connect Week on the Bloomington campus—an intense introduction to the program, faculty, and fellow students. Upon graduation, you’ll receive an MBA from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business—the same degree students studying on the IU campus receive.

Add a dual degree and further advance your career potential.

While in the Kelley Direct MBA program, you can add a dual degree with an MS in Finance, Global Supply Chain Management, or Strategic Management, typically with only 12 additional hours of classwork.
