Admission to the Kelley School of Business Doctoral Program is very competitive. Applicants are ranked according to the strengths of their credentials, as well as the school's ability to match an applicant's research interests with an available faculty mentor. No single factor is predominant in determining a student's ranking among the applicant pool in a given year.
