Institute of Business Analytics

Become a Corporate Partner

Kelley has a long tradition of corporate partnerships—a tradition that the Institute for Business Analytics (IBA) has embraced. We sought input from consulting firms, software companies, and consumer corporations as we shaped our curriculum and research, ensuring that we’re focusing on the topics and skills that will most benefit students and the business community.

Here’s how—and why—your organization should partner with IBA.

  • Recruit Top Students
    Kelley students are well known for their business acumen and preparation. That extends to our business analytics students, whose combination of business knowledge, analytical understanding, and communication skills make them ideal contributors to your team.

    Partnering with IBA will increase your visibility at Kelley, helping you connect with students. For more information, contact Graduate Career Services or Undergraduate Career Services.

  • Train Your Employees
    Our certificate program trains professionals on the keys of business analytics, from asking the right questions to effectively communicating the results. Contact us for details.

  • Tap Into Our Expertise
    Our research projects give corporate partners important insights and innovative ideas for using business analytics, such as how U.S. manufacturers of make-to-order and make-to-stock items can save money through an approach called “spackling.”

    We also solicit our partners’ recommendations for topics to investigate. Contact us for more information.

  • Attend IBA Events
    Our seminars, conferences, speaker series, and case competition for students put you in touch with others who are interested in this emerging field. Contact us for details.
