For many years finance has been first or second on the list of most popular majors in the MBA program, and for good reason: the short- and long-term career opportunities in finance are outstanding.
Graduates from the Full-Time MBA program find positions in corporate finance, investment banking, and investment management. Many of the companies recruiting at Kelley are the top employers in the country. Recent graduates have started careers as senior financial analysts, senior associates in consulting, and treasury analysts, and work in a variety of industries, including consumer goods, health care, banking, technology, manufacturing, and consulting.
