Overseas Study

The Kelley School offers students the opportunity to discover the culture of a different country through a fall, spring, or summer of study overseas. The students learn about international business and the economic, social, and political environment of the country in which they are living. These programs may give students further opportunities to visit governmental and political agencies, as well as multinational firms. Several of the programs include internships.

These academic programs enable students to earn Indiana University credits (3-6 credits hours in the summer and 14-16 credit hours during the semester) by attending classes taught by faculty from the host university (exceptions to the language of instruction noted above). Typically, business students participate in these programs during the junior or senior year. The Integrative Core and ECON-E 202 are prerequisites for participation in Kelley School overseas study programs. A GPA of 3.0 is preferred for acceptance to all programs. The overseas study programs where students take 6 or more credits fulfill the International Dimension Requirement; specific courses may apply to Kelley degree requirements.

Optional Minors

Students in the Kelley School may elect to complete the requirements for a minor in another IU Bloomington School. The department offering the minor defines the requirements for the minor and students are required to follow that department’s rules regarding grades, prerequisites, and course requirements. Up to three minors may appear on the student’s Indiana University transcript.
