Course and Degree Requirements

The Integrative Core

The Integrative Core (I-Core), a semester-long experience of four classes, is designed to pull together all of the concepts in the I-Core prerequisites and instill a higher level of learning that bridges the classroom and the real-world. The professors coordinate their course materials so that students are able to see the connections between various areas of business and use their understanding of those interrelationships to make business decisions. The final I-Core case, a Kelley "rite of passage" is an extensive - and intense - team project in which students demonstrate all they have learned. Students are required to pass each I-Core course with a grade of C or better.
