Business Administration, MBA
Master of Business Administration
Business leaders manage a company's operational, organizational, and managerial responsibilities. A Master of Business Administration provides training in the theory and practice of business management, and it prepares you to lead an organization's key business operations.
The IU Online Master of Business Administration includes two in-residence experiences, one at the beginning and one at the end of the program. The Kelley On Campus experiences are intensive academic and networking events held on the beautiful IU Bloomington campus. During these two in-residence experiences, you will meet your Kelley Direct Online MBA peers and professors while working on a live business case for a real client.
