Online Learning

Expand your thinking with dynamic online learning experiences

Experience matters in online education, and Kelley Direct is the industry leader and innovator in using technology to deliver graduate business education. The Kelley School of Business at Indiana University was the first top-ranked business school to offer an online MBA in 1999.

Simply put, the Kelley Direct online learning environment is unparalleled. From live weekly classes to team projects, your coursework will build your business expertise as you build lasting relationships with classmates and faculty.

Live weekly classes

You’ll have the opportunity to connect with your Kelley Direct classmates and professors for live classes every week. Each course requires a live weekly session. Your live class will last about 75 minutes and take place between 6 and 9 p.m. ET. Use this time to ask questions, get immediate answers, and join discussions. All live classes are recorded so you can reference them later.

“You can’t expect students to stay engaged while staring at a professor spout off for 75 minutes. Any content that is one-way communication isn’t taught in a live session. The live sessions are their opportunity to interact.”

“Several discussions, activities, and assignments are more effective in an online environment. I will be surprised if I ever teach a class that isn’t at least a partially flipped classroom with live and asynchronous content, even for traditionally in-person classes.”
