Faculty Information

Students Say

“Perennially ranked at the top for online MBA programs,” Indiana University Bloomington Kelly School of Business is “the only top tier program that was affordable and value-adding.” This top-ranking program offers flexible schedules, “a number of networking opportunities,” and devoted professors who “get it.” Professors use “quality materials,” give “personalized attention,” and are able to keep online students just as engaged as if they were physically sitting in the classroom. One student says, “The fact that the online faculty are the same professors who teach the in-person MBA courses is a huge plus, as the online program directly mirrors the physical program.” Online MBA students agree that IU professors are not “anything less than exceptional.” “There are times when I am actually overwhelmed by how organized my professors are. They are always on top of things, and the quality of teaching is exceptional,” says a student. They are able to break down concepts using “real-world business examples.” School administration runs “a world-class on-campus week” and provides outstanding overall support to students. Another unique feature of the program is the option for students to earn dual masters degrees (MBA/MS). Though the majority of students who attend Kelley’s MBA program already have a background in business, one student states, “This was especially attractive to me, since I don’t have a business undergraduate degree.” While completing MBA coursework online “certainly puts time at a premium,” Kelley’s program definitely allows for “maximum flexibility without compromising on quality.” At first glance, students may find the “rigorous coursework” daunting, however, the program is definitely made to accommodate adults with occupational and/or familial priorities. Students are able to watch recorded lectures, study and complete work at their convenience, and still find time for personal interests. “It truly is a program designed for people who have demanding full-time jobs and need to be able to manage their own time,” says a student. Online classmates speak highly of one another, calling themselves “driven,” as well as “bright,” “professional,” and well-respected in their fields. Although they are highly ambitious, they are also “team players.”

Career Services Overview

Students Say

Even though Kelley’s online MBA students are already “intelligent and accomplished in their careers,” they eventually become even more gifted alumni due to the “dynamic career program” offered through the school. Faculty members present valuable “career coaching” advice to students in order to help them advance in their careers. The “Kelley Connect Week experiences” are among the top networking opportunities offered at the school. Students have the chance to connect with students, faculty, alumni, and business leaders on campus by taking “live classes,” discussing relevant topics, and practicing their business skills. Students are also encouraged to access external networking resources such as LinkedIn and have the “ability to have an abroad/international course,” if desired. “They really push the networking and getting to know classmates and alumni.” IU is a “top-ranked school with name recognition and peers that will challenge me without having to quit my job and relocate,” boasts one student.
