Application Requirements

Along with a $75 application fee, applicants to the Kelley School of Business Online MBA program must submit GMAT or GRE scores, although these may be waived under special circumstances. As well, students must submit official school transcripts of academic records, one letter of recommendation, a 500-word personal statement, and a resume. Students may be invited to take part in a 30-minute phone interview with the school admissions team.

International students who were either born in a non-native English speaking country or have not earned an undergraduate or graduate degree at an English-speaking institution may have to provide either TOEFL or IELTS test scores to prove English fluency.

How do I apply to the Kelley Direct Online MBA program?

The application process for domestic and international students, including the Kelley Direct Online application deadlines, can be found on their How to Apply page. KDO has a two-part application process. The first part is free and takes 5 minutes to complete. Applicants encourage you to start it ASAP—before taking the GMAT or GRE—as you continue to consider your options. Once you complete part one, you will be paired with a dedicated admissions staff member who will walk you through the rest of the application process and conduct an enrollment interview with qualified applicants.
