Indiana Kelley Business School

Kelley Program Overview
The mission of the Kelley School is to transform lives, organizations, and society through business education and research. The school accomplishes this through a unique, collaborative approach that is based on creating and sustaining value-added relationships among faculty, students, alumni, and our corporate partners.

Kelley faculty are known as strong scholars and committed teachers, elevating Kelley to the #1 spot for classroom experience, according to The Princeton Review. The Program boasts remarkable faculty who consistently publish in “A-level” journals, consult with top national and international corporations, and hold a number of prestigious “chair” positions. In a recent study of academic research productivity by The Chronicle of Higher Education, Indiana University ranked 5th in marketing and 10th in finance.

The Kelley School MBA Program is known for its highly collaborative culture that emphasizes team leadership. Nearly every course at Kelley integrates a team component and this teamwork extends beyond peer-to-peer interaction to peer-faculty collaboration. This unique culture is supported by the intimate atmosphere of a college-town environment and fosters life-long relationships resultant of a true residential program. With relatively small class sizes and nearly 100% of students and faculty residing in Bloomington, the Kelley MBA Program allows for ultimate accessibility both in and out of the classroom. The Kelley culture extends beyond graduation to its incredibly loyal and powerful alumni network, numbering over 86,000 worldwide.

IU Kelley School of Business ranks #22 in US News & World Report‘s 2023-2024 Best Business Schools ranking.
