Step One: Researching MBA Programs

The admissions travel circuit is in full swing! I'm spending a few days in Chicago for an event this evening as well as enjoying some time to "return home." Being from this area, it's always great to come back and explore the city as a visitor. I've been able to catch up with friends and family while getting a chance to go to a few baseball games and enjoy some of the best food imaginable. (I highly recommend Portillo's for a great Chicago dog or Italian beef! I also came across a new one today: M Burger; it was quite tasty! Oh, and breakfast at Yolk was unbelievable!)

Anyway, as you begin researching programs to determine which may be the best fit for you, I wanted to share a few "in-house" pieces to provide some general thoughts and well as specific insight to the Kelley MBA Program. You will likely become inundated with information as you research and explore, but here are a few quick starting points. Good luck as you begin to explore!!
  • Be sure to visit the Kelley MBA Admissions page. In particular, you'll find some great pointers and insight direct from students by watching the podcasts in the Kelley Media section of the page.
  • Learn more about the Kelley MBA Program by reading some of the latest featured Spotlights.
  • Stay up-to-date on the most recent news and notes at Kelley 360.
  • Mark your calendar with our upcoming events in your area!
Message from the Admissions Committee: The information on our website will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect the most recent data, incoming class profile, graduate employment rates, and our newest publications. The good news is that things appear to be going very well so be sure to check back often!
