It takes us about three weeks to receive your official scores from the date you take the test. In the meantime, feel free to email us the unofficial score report you received on the day of the test at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most applicants must take one test or the other. However, applicants with certain advanced degrees and/or who received their undergraduate degree from the Kelley School of Business (Indianapolis or Bloomington) may apply for a testing waiver. If you think you may be eligible for a testing waiver based on this criteria, please contact us at email@example.com.
No. Our program has no prerequisites. If accepted into the program, you will be required to take an accounting primer (a short, online course in basic accounting principles) after acceptance but before taking your first accounting course. Accepted students who are Licensed CPAs may be exempt from taking the primer. Please contact the program office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Evening MBA Program requires that 48 of the 54 credit hours be taken in residence at Kelley. If you have been enrolled in a previous graduate business program, you may petition to transfer up to six hours of credit, provided it meets certain criteria and has the approval of the MBA faculty program chair.
The Office of the Registrar determines Indiana residency. Typically a student must be a resident of the state for 12 months, working full-time and not simply residing here for tuition purposes.
It depends on the type of visa you hold. We can accept many types of visas. However, we cannot accept F1 or J1 visas. Holders of these visas must be enrolled in school full-time, while the Evening MBA is a part-time program of study. F1 or J1 visa holders are welcome instead to contact the Kelley School of Business Bloomington campus regarding admission to the full-time MBA program: email@example.com.
After we’ve received all application materials, and if the Admissions Committee feels you are a viable candidate, we’ll notify you within 10 business days that you’ve been selected for an admissions interview. After the interview, we’ll notify you within seven business days if you’ve been admitted.
24 months. It is a part-time program designed to be completed while you work full-time (or while you pursue another graduate degree as part of an approved dual degree program).
You'll typically have class twice a week: one night per week on campus, and night per week online. Our students enjoy this "hybrid model" because it allows them to build face-to-face relationships with professors and peers while affording them the flexibility of online learning.
Most Evening MBA classes meet from approximately 6:00-9:00 PM.
No. We do not accept non-degree-seeking students. Anyone wanting to take Evening MBA classes must apply and be admitted into the full degree.
The Evening MBA uses a cohort structure. Twice a year (in August and December), we admit a cohort of 50–70 new students who take the same core classes together at the same time. Our students tell us that they frequently learn as much from other students as from their professors; this peer learning model is integral to the program.
For this reason, we strongly discourage you from applying to or enrolling in the program unless you’re prepared to complete the coursework schedule as planned for the full 24 months. Our curriculum and schedule require your commitment—but we promise it’ll be worth it.
Of course, we understand that life happens. If your circumstances change after beginning the program, and it’s no longer possible for you to complete the coursework as scheduled, we’ll work with you. However, prospective students should not enter the program with this expectation of flexibility.
