Meet new people and make lasting connections

Student life in Kelley’s online graduate business degree programs is active, focused, and personal. You’ll start your program by meeting faculty and your classmates on campus during your first Kelley Connect Week. From there you can choose to get involved as much or as little as you choose in our numerous student life experiences.

Get involved in student organization and clubs

Join one of our student organizations to strengthen your leadership skills and build your business network.

Be social


Connect with current students, alumni, faculty, and staff through Kelley Direct’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and our blog. It’s a great way to stay in touch, share helpful information, and celebrate accomplishments with your peers.

Attend on-campus events and ceremonies

You’ll meet and work with fellow students on-site at the beautiful Indiana University Bloomington campus when you attend Kelley Connect Weeks, your on-campus residency weeks. While you’re on campus, you’ll collaborate with your peers in case competitions, meet alumni and corporate leaders, and have the opportunity to socialize during a variety of on-campus events.

As a student in our program, you’ll be invited to participate in several campus traditions, including a welcome ceremony held for all new students during your first Kelley Connect Week.

There is also a special recognition ceremony held for all Kelley Direct graduates during Commencement weekend. Learn more about graduation ceremonies.

Study in Washington, D.C., or in an emerging overseas market

If you choose the online MBA program, you’ll have the option of participating in Kelley’s Washington Campus program or taking an AGILE (Accelerating Global Immersion Leadership Education) course.

In the AGILE course, you’ll study abroad in an emerging market such as South Africa, Botswana, Brazil, India, or China. These are unforgettable and life-changing experiences for our students, and many say they are the highlight of their degree program.
