This review is for Kelley
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2019
So far I'm getting exactly what I thought I would out of Kelley. Obviously very strong in marketing but great opportunities as well if you're looking at corporate finance or operations. Consulting and banking are more difficult but if you're focused and determined, you can make it happen.
Class size is a little over 200 and being in a small college town really makes it easy to get to know your classmates well. I'm constantly impressed by many of my colleagues.
My one point of caution is know what you want out of the program before you get here. If you come in with a clear direction, the school will get you there. That can be said about any program but I think it's important.
I'd say I'm pleased with my decision at this point. I came to Kelley wanting a cheap but respected MBA, Kelley offers some of the best financial aid of any program.
Kelley is well resourced due to the undergrad side and Direct program so we are fortunate to have some great professors overall. The graduate building here is a little dated but a new career center opened up a month ago and is very nice.
Great professors overall, many of which are leaders in their field. Make sure you understand and like the academy structure. It's unique and can be very helpful if you're looking to switch fields.
On campus recruiting and placement is strong but many people go off campus too. You get a ton of one on one attention. It's not always easy for internationals, especially in 2018. But if you know what you want and work towards it, you'll have great opportunities.
