Financial Times ranks IU Kelley Direct online MBA program fifth best in the world
For the second year in a row, the Kelley Direct online MBA program at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business has been ranked fifth worldwide by the Financial Times.
This was the second year that the Financial Times has ranked online MBA programs. Kelley, which also ranked third among U.S. institutions, maintained its position after the leading U.K.-based business publication revised its methodology.
Earlier this year, Kelley Direct and the school's online Master of Science program each were ranked No. 1 in U.S. News and World Report's rankings of the Best Online Programs.
Kelley School Dean Idalene Kesner said the continued recognition for the program reflects its innovative curriculum, excellent faculty and commitment to serving the needs of students.
“We think business should be personal, and so should business education, whether it’s on campus or online. Our Kelley Direct program continues to develop innovative ways to connect our faculty to students and connect students to each other," said Kesner, who also holds the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management. "We also provide support to help students tailor their degree path to their personal career goals."
