Visit Bloomington

A premier business education in a sophisticated small town.

When you come to Kelley on the IU Bloomington campus, you'll benefit from more than just our top-ranked degree offerings and the largest business school alumni network in the world—you'll benefit from all of the perks that come from being in the sophisticated small town of Bloomington, Ind., population 80,000—approximately 40,000 of which are students, representing all 50 states and more than 125 countries. A town named:

  • One of America's most beautiful college campuses and top college towns. Travel & Leisure, New York Times,,, USA Today
  • One of America's top-50 adventure towns. National Geographic Adventure Magazine
  • Top 10 foodie city, 2013; a destination for wine and culinary enthusiasts., Orbitz

And that doesn't even begin to cover the excitement of being on a Big Ten campus during basketball season (go Hoosiers!) or during "the world's greatest college weekend" —the weekend of the Little 500 bicycle race which inspired the Academy-award winning movie, Breaking Away. Plus, world-class performances are as close as a local club or IU's top-ranked Department of Theater & Drama and Jacobs School of Music, natural beauty abounds, and we boast more ethnic restaurants per capita than New York City.

But, of course, you're here for business.

The Kelley School, named for E.W. Kelley, BS'39, consists of two adjoining buildings in the center of campus, on either side of Fee Lane and directly across from the Herman B Wells Library.

Godfrey Graduate and Executive Education Center

Completed in 2002, the $33 million Godfrey Center, named for William J. Godfrey, BS'64, MBA'68, houses Kelley's Full-Time MBA, Graduate Accounting, and Kelley Direct Online programs, along with Kelley Executive Partners and Graduate Career Services.

Hodge Hall Undergraduate Center

Currently undergoing a $60 million renovation and expansion, Hodge Hall, named for James R. Hodge, BS'74, houses Kelley's Undergraduate and Doctoral programs, along with many faculty and departmental offices. The renovations—completely privately funded—should be complete in 2014. In addition, houses within walking distance of the main Kelley School provide space for our Executive Degree Programs and some of our centers and other offices.
