Welcome to the Kelley School of Business!
Message from the Associate Dean, Kelley School of Business
Thank you very much for your interest in the undergraduate program of the Kelley School of Business. The school's history can be traced to the early 1920's, when a select group of students and faculty had the foresight to undertake a program of study that has become known throughout the world as one of the finest of its kind. From both the Indianapolis and Bloomington campuses, the Kelley School of Business conducts operations across the globe.
The joint resources of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and IU Bloomington allow us to offer outstanding programs in business administration to a significant percentage of Indiana's population.
IUPUI is Indiana University's capital-city campus. As Indiana's state capital and a major metropolitan area, Indianapolis is an ideal place to study business. Within city blocks of the Kelley School is the highest concentration of corporations, government offices and agencies, small businesses, health care providers, professional practices, and not-for-profit organizations in the state. The campus affords a unique and dynamic environment for learning, conducting research, teaching, and collaborating with businesses. It is difficult to imagine a richer context in which students of all ages can enhance their knowledge and leadership skills while maximizing their personal development.
The curriculum of the undergraduate program is based on a solid foundation of study in the liberal arts and sciences that develops strong interpersonal, communications, and decision-making skills. To this can be added specialized education in the fields of accounting, computer information systems, finance, management, human resource management, marketing, or supply chain management. But, in today's global environment, training in business functions alone is insufficient. For this reason, students broaden their programs of study with learning relevant to international business affairs. This requirement may be fulfilled in any of the following ways: language study, international business and economics courses, participation in an approved overseas study program, or approved liberal arts course work with an international focus. Our intent is to help prepare students for the global economic environment of the future.
The entire program is offered in a convenient, accessible way to both full and part-time students. High-tech delivery systems, joint programs with other schools at IUPUI, a challenging Honors Program, student organizations, and alumni activities make the Kelley School of Business an exciting place to be. Participation in the undergraduate program involves more than merely taking courses. We offer a comprehensive educational experience that prepares you to join the growing number of IU graduates providing leadership in business organizations around the world.
