Curriculum overview

These courses build the foundation for your business education, helping you develop a well-rounded skill set that will prepare you for your upper level courses and your career.

This block of classes looks at the important relationships among finance, marketing, operations, and leadership.

I-Core will challenge you to solve cross-functional business problems while developing your professional and leadership skills. The final I-Core case—a Kelley rite of passage—is an intense team project in which students demonstrate what they've learned during the semester.

After completing your I-Core prerequisites and I-Core, you will focus on one or more Kelley majors of your choice.

Our goal is for students to have a well-rounded academic experience. During your studies at Kelley and IU, you will:

  • Expand your knowledge base and gain new perspectives with IUB General Education courses
  • Gain a deeper understanding of macroeconomics, delve into ethical reasoning within business, and become proficient in strategic management
  • Have the opportunity to take exploration courses and complete a minor in an interest area outside of business
  • Deepen your understanding of other cultures and the global nature of business through optional study abroad or short-term international experiences
