IU's Kelley School recognized by two national publications
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Kelley School of Business at Indiana University again has been recognized in new rankings released by two national publications.
In its annual rankings of business schools, the Wall Street Journal today (Sept. 22) ranked IU's Kelley School 13th in its listing of regional business schools. The same report selected two of the school's programs for overall academic excellence, ranking marketing fifth and accounting seventh. Kelley was also ranked fourth by recruiters from consumer products companies.
"We continue to enjoy national status, since 71 percent of our incoming students are from outside the Midwest," said Idie Kesner, MBA program chair, co-director of MBA academies and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management.
In a separate ranking released on Tuesday (Sept. 21), the Princeton Review recognized the Kelley School's faculty as being the best and its facilities as being third-best in the nation. For a new guide rating business schools, the Princeton Review interviewed 11,000 students at 143 MBA programs nationally. Students who were surveyed selected the Kelley School as the No. 1 program for "best professors" and No. 3 for "best campus facilities."
"While we value the rankings, they are not the only measure of evaluating the impact of all our programs," said Dan Smith, interim dean of the Kelley School. "The development and educational experience at Kelley is much more than that."
