Kelley School of Business Indiana University

Introduction

The Kelley School offers a top-tier business education focused on guiding you toward your own true success.

At the Kelley School of Business, we are in the business of creating career momentum. Our students have the talent to succeed, the humility to grow and the tenacity to persevere. That spirit—combined with an education that only the elite Kelley School can deliver—results in graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to meet new challenges, to make positive change possible and to contribute to their organizations from day one.

We have our roots in the first business course offered at Indiana College in Bloomington in 1830. Indiana College grew to be Indiana University, and the School of Commerce and Finance, established in 1920, grew to be the Kelley School of Business. We’ve offered business courses on our Indianapolis campus since 1916, implemented executive education in 1952 and advance business education on a global scale. Our timeline showcases more than 100 years of business excellence.

Go from moment to momentum

There are moments of significance in life. They happen anywhere, anytime. A flash of inspiration for a new business, an introduction to a mentor, landing the big job—they’re pivotal moments that define you. And without the proper training and support, that’s all they are: single moments that end when they end. With Kelley, these moments explode into chain reactions of opportunity. You’re not just prepared for them; you’re able to navigate them in order to guide yourself toward your own true success.
