World-Renowned Degree

A Kelley degree is respected and recognized everywhere.

When you earn an MBA or MS degree from one of the most respected business schools in the world, you never need to explain your credentials. And the Kelley School of Business is regularly touted as among the best by the Financial Times, U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg Businessweek, and others.

Graduates of the Kelley Direct MBA program earn the same respected degree as graduates of Kelley’s full-time and evening MBA programs, taught by the same elite faculty. Our faculty members deliver proven education, pioneering and continually innovating online teaching methods since Kelley Direct began in 1999.
