Curriculum – Notable Features

The Kelley Academies give you muscle, helping you turn theory into practice, knowledge to in-depth insight, expertise into experience, and classroom skills into career success.

Along with Graduate Career Services, your Academy Director connects you to the right networks that matter—to help you open doors, explore your opportunities, and expand your possibilities. Your Kelley Academy helps you develop the experience and confidence you need to impress and to succeed, on your very first day and beyond.

Integrated Core
You'll spend your first semester at Kelley immersed in our innovative approach to business fundamentals: the Integrated Core.

This integrated approach is different than traditional coursework that you may have experienced at your undergraduate institution - or at other top MBA Programs. During the summer prior to your first semester, the Core faculty spend hours carefully mapping out a teaching plan that ensures successive sessions complement one another, giving you a holistic understanding of every business problem presented and how to attack it from many perspectives, including operations, marketing, and ethics, for example.

Co-taught by eight faculty, who team-teach classroom sessions, the Integrated Core weaves together every business discipline in one 15-week course that includes:
  • Critical Thinking & Ethics
  • Economic Foundations
  • Corporate Finance
  • Financial Accounting
  • Marketing
  • Operations Strategy
  • Quantitative Methods
  • Strategic Management

To enrich your experience and broaden your perspective even further, you'll learn alongside a group of the same 70 students throughout the Core semester as you work in cross-cultural, cross-industry teams with three or four of your peers.

Bloomington Brands (B2)
Manage a real national brand without leaving business school.
Bloomington Brands (B2) is the brand management team for Osmocote® Plant Food, a best-selling brand for the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.

And the team is composed of Kelley MBA students.

Kelley MBA students interview for positions on the team in their first year and work on the brand for two semesters. Scotts owns the trademark and provides essential business functions. Kelley MBA students handle all the marketing functions: brand strategy, consumer communications, trade and consumer promotional activities, sizing, pricing, product content, and packaging.

At B2, real-world experience meets real-world responsibility—and that translates into real-world opportunities. B2’s brand managers have landed high-profile positions with Scotts, Colgate, Procter & Gamble, Nestle, Kraft, Nationwide, General Mills, and Kellogg.
