Oh, the places you'll go in a Two Year MBA Program!

One of the really unique things about the Kelley School of Business is our KIPs or Kelley International Perspectives. They are an opportunity for MBA Program Students to gain leadership experience by designing curriculum for their classmates around a specific country and then taking the whole class to that country during spring break to visit companies and learn about the country's culture. We had lots of different options to chose from this year: China, Ireland, UAE/Egypt and Israel.



I chose Israel because the Graduate Business Program student leading the trip was so passionate about the country and teaching us more about Israel's entrepreneur spirit and how it is very similar to the great Entrepreneur MBA Program we have at Kelley.

Our trip was a whirlwind! We had 12 days of constant movement from one end of the country to the other. Visiting places like:
We also got to visit Tel Aviv University and meet other Business School MBA Students. And made sure to meet up with the IU alums for a reception.

Although, we weren't business all the time! We made time to visit the Dead Sea, Masada, the Ba'hai gardens in Haifa and Petra. Our trip planners even made sure we could experience a real Shabbat lunch with an orthodox family.

Our KIP was an amazing experience, and something you really only get at Top MBA Business School like Kelley!
