Attend Kelley School of Business at IU!


This review is for Kelley

Program Full Time MBA

Class of 2017

Experience during the program

Everyone, including faculty and students, are passionate. The program significantly improves every year. Get in touch with current students, called Hoosier Hosts. They will answer all of your questions.

The first, core semester was spent in teams of five. Each team was as diverse as possible. International students, veterans, women, ethnic minorities, accountants, etc. were distributed so that each team had one or two of each. In addition, we took a personality test and each team included different personality types.

I came from a Liberal Arts background. I had no formal business training prior to arrival. I found the first semester extremely intense and challenging. All future semesters have been much more manageable and less stressful. I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short period of time. I am now able to dig deeper into different subjects.

The school is respected among the best business schools. We attend conferences, case competitions and job interviews along with other top schools, and are considered peers.

Kelley has the largest alumni base and the most C-suite executives of any school. Even if you're from the coast, like me, don't discount this Midwestern location. If you're looking at top schools, Indiana University should be on your short list.

About professors, classes and curriculum

The core is very rigorous. Kelley graduates are known for outstanding collaborative and analytical skills.

About job placement process

The #1 focus is Marketing, both to consumers and to businesses. There are great programs for other concentrations as well. Many students head to Chicago upon graduation, though many travel elsewhere.
