Kelley School of Business – Indiana University - 3/2 MBA
Kelley School of Business 3/2 MBA Program Structure
The University of Indiana Kelley School of Business 3/2 MBA allows accounting and finance students to earn a Bachelor’s degree and MBA degree in just five years—one less year than the standard amount of time needed to traditionally earn both degrees. This structure allows students to earn both degrees on a linear path, rather than taking time off to earn work experience between undergraduate school and graduate school.
After earning a Bachelor’s in the first three years, year one of the MBA program features 36 credit hours worth of courses, which has the requisite amount of time (150 hour requirement) to take the CPA. Year two features 30 credit hours of mostly electives to specialize in finance or accounting. The experiential education in the MBA-leg of the program features a capstone competition, a field study, field consulting, and internship experiences.
The most recent 3/2 MBA class featured 54 students, 26 percent of which are female and 10 percent of which are international students. The GPA of the class is 3.65.
The most recent Kelley 3/2 MBA and MSA graduating class earned an average salary of $65,847 and an average signing bonus $5,142. More than 95 percent of graduates earn full-time roles within 90 days of graduation.
