Kelley School of Business

In its programs the Indiana University Kelley School of Business prepares students to make a difference in business by providing them with a firm base of liberal arts education consistent with other professional programs and a breadth within its own curriculum, while maintaining a continuing, lively interchange within related fields.

The Kelley School of Business faculty envisions graduates developing in one of two areas: (1) as managers and executive planners, decision makers, organizers, and controllers of operations in their particular firms; or (2) as analysts of, and adapters to, the larger economic and political environment. To be effective in any of these areas, students need to focus on decision making and implementation. The Kelley School of Business provides instruction rooted in a tradition of scholarship and encourages new ideas and knowledge that help students achieve these goals.

Through the application of well-chosen case studies and the knowledge of teachers with real-world experience, students learn what it takes to solve the concrete problems of management functions such as finance, management, production, accounting, marketing, and their related fields. Academic advisors recommend balanced course programs adjusted to the particular backgrounds and interests of individual students.

The Kelley School of Business puts particular emphasis on research that is future oriented. The growing, rapidly changing character of the American economy has never been more evident than in recent years. The potential for continuing changes in technology, in institutional and organizational patterns, in the way people use their leisure time, and in the relations of the U.S. economy to the rest of the world are enormous. To shape the future, business students must learn to project their thinking beyond what is possible today.

Because corporate management wields such power in modern U.S. society, students have a responsibility to develop a healthy sense of their social responsibilities as future executives. They must develop an ethical philosophy of business that, while still evolving and flexible, is articulate and coherent and can direct them in their careers.
