Kelley School of Business – Indiana University


In 1920, Indiana University founded the School of Commerce and Finance. After swiftly changing its name to the School of Business Administration in 1933, the school was renamed again as the School of Business just five years later. In 1997, the school officially changed to its current title as the Kelley School of Business, named after E.W. Kelley, an alumnus who generously donated $23 million to the business school.
