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 Kelley Connect Weeks, which are intensive e-academic and networking weeks on the beautiful IU Bloomington campus. During these two in-residence weeks, you will meet your Kelley MBA peers and professors while working on a live business case for a real client.

You complete your remaining studies online, with coursework in economics, quantitative analysis, accounting, strategic marketing management, operations management, financial management, business planning, information technology, global business, business law, and more. You also undertake an integrative team capstone project that provides an opportunity to actively synthesize what you have learned in the program.

Kelley MBA alumni are highly valued in the marketplace. Recent graduates of the online MBA program experienced an average salary increase of 29 percent, and nearly two-thirds earned a promotion by the time they graduated.

Dual Degree Options

In addition to your MBA, you can earn a Master of Science in finance, global supply chain management, information technology management, business analytics, strategic management, and other business functional areas by taking just four additional courses.
