Faculty Information

Students Say

Indiana University's Kelley School of Business online MBA program distinguishes itself from the pack by offering its students a wealth of well-managed options within a flexible, asynchronous program. Online MBA students share faculty with Kelley's well-respected full-time MBA program, can elect to study at satellite programs in Washington, D.C., Gaborone, Sao Paolo, Beijing, New Delhi, Myanmar, or Johannesburg, or can earn a dual MS degree in business analytics, finance, global supply chain management, marketing, or strategic management, typically with only 12 additional credit hours. Administratively, students almost universally describe the school as "well-run" and praise the technology. "Accomplished classmates and a reliable online platform make for a good program, but the faculty are what make the program great. The professors and other faculty I have worked with are ‘all in; on making the experience valuable." Students are "bright, ambitious, career driven individuals with a desire to learn, improve, and work together." "My fellow students constantly inspire me to aim higher." Kelley "seeks to utilize all technological assets available and bridge gap with unique experiential offerings which teach culture, social entrepreneurship, business principles, and consulting skills." The "faculty constantly [is] making efforts at improving the program and bridging the gap between online and full-time." Each semester, the school offers an AGILE—Accelerating Global Immersion Leadership Education—elective in one of the aforementioned cities. "AGILE and GLOBASE are innovative immersion experiences which enable students to solve real problems while navigating sociopolitical and cultural differences in emerging markets." Additionally, "Kelley Connect Week is a kickoff for the Kelley Direct MBA program" that students are required to attend, and "These Kelley Connect weeks are amazing and are a great way to feel connected to the beautiful campus and IU community."
