Kelley School of Business – Indiana University - Full-Time MBA

University of Indiana Kelley School of Business Full-Time MBA Program Structure

Before beginning the first year of the two-year, full-time MBA program at the AASCB-accredited Kelley School of Business, students participate in the two-week intensive Me Inc. program, which fosters team building elements and career development. Those without an undergraduate business degree can also participate in the Jump Start week, helping those get up to speed alongside their peers.

Alongside the academic regiment, students in the Kelly full-time program participate in coinciding leadership and career development from the very beginning until the very end of the program, with rigorous career coaching, networking assistance, a summer internship, and much more.


Alongside 15 weeks of core courses, first year students select one of seven “academies,” of which include: business marketing; capital markets; consulting; consumer marketing; strategic finance; supply chain; and PLUS life sciences. Academies in the second year of the program are optional, but can help students accentuate the learning experiences of the first year.

In the second semester, students begin integrating electives to their coursework, which lasts until the fourth and final semester. The final semester features an optional study abroad segment, a study week in Washington DC, and the final capstone project requirement.
