Induction & Kelley Connect Weeks
As a Kelley Direct student, you’ll build connections immediately
Your opportunity to build connections begins during Kelley Connect Week on the Indiana University Bloomington campus. More than an immersion weekend, Kelley Connect Week kicks off your MBA or MS degree program. During the Kelley Direct Induction Ceremony, held on the first Saturday of the first-year Kelley Connect Week, you officially become part of the Kelley family.
Throughout your Kelley Connect Week experience, you will network with Kelley School of Business deans, faculty, staff, fellow students, and alumni during a champagne reception, the Kelley Direct Welcome Dinner, and the Student Social at Nick’s English Hut, a legendary Bloomington pub. You’ll also dive into the rigorous Kelley curriculum with an intense 1.5 credit hour course, Topics in Directed Business Interaction, taught by an elite faculty team.
MBA students return for another Kelley Connect Week at the beginning of the second year of their program, further building bonds with classmates, faculty, and business leaders. During this second Kelley Connect Week, Faculty Chair Phil Powell will facilitate a case competition involving a real-world business issue. Winning teams will present to company executives and may even see their recommendations implemented.
