The Kelley Advantage
At the Kelley School of Business, you’ll get the innovative, real-world education you need to pursue a successful business career.
A Kelley education prepares you to achieve success—within three months of graduation more than 94 percent of Kelley graduate students reported full-time job offers and 93 percent of our undergraduates reported a full-time job offer or graduate school acceptance. We empower our diverse graduates to follow their passion, lead organizations, and make a difference. We invite you to take a virtual tour, visit us in person, and learn more about the Kelley Advantage:
Our top-ranked Undergraduate and Graduate Career Services offices work with hundreds of employers eager to hire Kelley students, known for their work ethic and business knowledge. In 2011-12 alone, more than 630 employers hired Kelley undergraduate and graduate students and over 700 companies recruited and posted jobs with us. The vast majority of our students complete internships (often more than one), and our doctoral students draw job offers from leading institutions worldwide. In 2012, Financial Times ranked us number four in the world for MBA job placement and Business Week consistently gives Kelley an A+ for undergraduate job placement.
At every degree level, our students learn core concepts of critical thinking and analysis, teamwork, and communication—and learn to solve complex business problems, laying the foundation for their major or specialty area.
In fact, the Kelley School is among the pioneers of the integrated business curriculum—an innovative approach to teaching business fundamentals with a real-world context—which we continuously update to reflect the changing business world. And, we were the first top-20 business school to offer online degrees to highly-qualified professionals.
Whether full- or part-time, on our campuses in Bloomington or Indianapolis, or through our online or executive education programs, the Kelley School offers you opportunities to earn a top-ranked Kelley education and a respected Indiana University degree.
At Kelley, you’ll learn from our award-winning faculty—exceptional teachers who dedicate themselves to making our graduates the best business professionals available.
Our faculty members are educational leaders and groundbreaking researchers who make headlines and inspire numerous publications each year. They author best-selling textbooks, serve as sought-after consultants, corporate board members, and, most importantly, as mentors to our students.
As a Kelley student, you’ll get hands-on, real-world experience that can jump-start your career before you enter the workforce. From high-profile internships to our Integrative Core to Bloomington Brands, our student-staffed brand management firm, Kelley undergraduates have endless opportunities to learn while building their resumes. At the MBA level, unlike at any other school, our Academies serve as a bridge from classroom to career, building skills for long-term career success.
Recruiters tell us that Kelley graduates hit the ground running—one of the reasons that hundreds of companies return to Bloomington year after year, recruiting from our proven student base.
Just as business is global, so is a Kelley education—from our faculty’s globally-focused research and cross-cultural approaches to teaching, to our partnerships with international universities, to global opportunities at the undergraduate, graduate, online, and executive degree levels. We offer more than 30 overseas programs for broadening your business perspective.
Teamwork is the hallmark of a Kelley education. Kelley students learn from their high-caliber peers in a work-like setting, collaborate with expert faculty who become their mentors, and develop solid leadership skills for an immediate edge in their careers. Although our environment is collegial, our students are fierce competitors—participating in numerous case competitions each year with a winning history.
College life doesn’t get any better than this. For sports, food, culture, and campus beauty, Bloomington and Indiana University are regularly ranked at the top in the nation by the likes of Forbes, Newsweek, New York Times, Sports Illustrated, Travel & Leisure, and USA Today.
At 95,000 strong, you’ll become part of Kelley’s alumni network with connections around the globe—changing business, transforming lives, and ready to help the next generation of Kelley students become business leaders ready to carry on our tradition of success.
