The Key to Success
From one-person startups to multinational companies with thousands of employees, effective management—of people, of resources, and even of time—is the key to success in any business.
The Kelley Department of Management and Entrepreneurship offers the education, experience, and connections you need to be successful after graduation. Taught by world-class faculty members who are both dedicated teachers and researchers, our curriculum will immerse you in the important concepts and essential skills you'll need for exciting careers in the following areas:
Many students in our department are also invited to participate in three highly selective Kelley programs. The Consulting Workshop is for students who are interested in pursuing a career in consulting. The Entrepreneurship Laboratory Workshop (E-Lab) is aimed at students who wish to start their own firm. The Target Excellence in Business Leadership program is a hands-on program leadership program that is funded by a grant from Target. All three programs offer exceptional real-world opportunities and learning experiences by connecting students with professionals in the field as well as hiring companies.
A concentration in management and entrepreneurship will prepare you to succeed at top corporations across the globe, and with startup companies in your living room. Our students are recruited by some of the nation's top employers, such as Procter & Gamble, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and Cummins, and Business Week gave Kelley an A+ for undergraduate job placement in 2009. Many of our entrepreneurship students work with the Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation to learn how to write a business plan, woo investors, and run a company that turns a profit.
