Student Life

Meet new people and make lasting connections.

Student life in Kelley’s Online MBA Program is active, focused, and personal. If you decide to pursue an MBA, you'll meet faculty and your classmates on campus during Kelley On Campus or Kelley On Location events. From there you can get involved as much or as little as you choose in our numerous student life experiences.

Study in Washington, D.C., or in an emerging overseas market

If you choose the online MBA program, you’ll have the option of participating in Kelley’s Washington Campus program or participating in a global or domestic immersion.

During global immersions you’ll study abroad in an emerging market such as South Africa, Brazil, India, China, or Cuba. Domestic immersions are completed with Fortune 500 companies in major US markets. These are unforgettable and life-changing experiences for our students, and many say they are the highlight of their degree program.
