Meet Us

Experience the culture and community of our Full-Time MBA Program for yourself, before you decide.

Choosing a full-time MBA program is a big decision. We invite you to talk with our faculty, staff and students to learn more about our program and what it has to offer you.

Discover what it means to be a Kelley by speaking with a current student, joining us for a virtual roundtable discussion, scheduling a counseling session, or taking a virtual tour of the Godfrey Graduate & Executive Education Center, home of the Kelley MBA Program.

Our admissions team and alumni will also be available to meet you at virtual and in-person MBA recruitment events. And, of course, you can request information or contact us at any time.

Please contact us at if you would like to set up a phone call or meeting via Skype with a member of the admissions team to learn more about the program.

Kelley invests in you.

Professors, Academy directors, staff, alumni, students—and even a student’s partner—share how they invest in Kelley MBA students and each other. You’ll experience the Kelley community’s support before classes even start, and you’ll rely on it as you progress through the program, secure an internship, and make decisions about your career.

Sometimes when we think of a dream career, we think of this kind of nebulous, "Oh, this is what I would like." But it's lovely to see that synergy between somebody defining the dream and then beginning to define action steps, alums they can connect with that bring them closer to that.
