Kelley School of Business (Indiana University)

Hello,

I know people here have talked about Kelley before, but I just wanted a post about Kelley only. Would you guys here consider Kelley, a target... semi-target?

I was looking at their Invesment banking workshop ( http://www.kelley.iu.edu/ibw/ ) and almost everyone there has an IB job lined up for this summer.

Also, they seemed to be ranked high for finance (6th) by various guides.

I'm aldready signed up to go next year, and its not like I can change my mind, but I was just curious.

Thanks

I attended Kelley (Masters of Accounting, not mba) and absolutely LOVE the place. I got to know a few of the mbas and my impression is that its probably a semi-target. I THINK its accurate to say that most in the IB club got good gigs, but I think they had to put some real effort into the networking, etc... Offers weren't just handed out at will.

My (biased) recommendation is, if possible, go to Kelley. That was without a doubt the best year of my life. The students, faculty, town, everything is absolutely amazing. I might get an mba in a few years partially because I want to go back!

Jun 3, 2007 - 7:23pm

angry-

do you know hoe many people were in the IB club? My impression was that not many people outside of the club got offers, but 75 is more people placed than I would've expected. I'm kinda impressed.

It's important to note that there are two tracks in the Investment Banking Workshop (IBW)--Investment Banking and Investment Management. The Investment Management track has recently split off and will be a separate organization. Within the Investment Banking track, there are apprx. 33 students per class, all of whom received offers. I'm not positive how many are in the management track, but the Kelley school also offers another program specifically for seniors called Excellence in Investment Banking. There are a handful of students in this program that also receive offers on the street.

Do you know how to increase your chances of getting into the workshop?
I heard its difficult to get into but not too sure

Jun 18, 2007 - 3:12pm

Whatever you do, make sure you are in the workshop AND in the Kelley business school. My good friend tried the Econ/Math route and got an interview for every BB but rejected from every single one. The only reason he got rejected was becuase he wasn't in the school of business. He still got all those interviews becuase he was in the workshop.

In the end, he got a trading job, so everything worked out, but it was very discouraging seeing him get rejected from all those bb's not becuase he wasn't qualified, but becuase he wasnt in the Kelley school.

Indiana University-Kelley School as Undergrad? (Originally Posted: 09/02/2012)

I am an international student doing my undergrad at Indiana University, Kellley School of Business. Even though the reputation for the Kelley is great, the Indiana University is not as well known as the business department.. I am wondering if I should transfer to schools like NYU or Gerogetown to get a shot at a big companies(finance) here in America..

I'd love to hear your opinions.. Also when I go back to my country, I am concerned that my degree at Kellley will not be differnciated from those who majored in economics at Indiana University.. I do get scholarships as a Direct Admit here and I am a sophomore..

I am opend for any advice or opinions. Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:15pm

Look, you don't need to transfer. You will need to work a bit harder at Kelley, but it's completely doable. Peruse your alumni database by companies you want to work for, or by locations you want to work at. Go to networking events; get to know your professors (some may be former IBankers or may be doing something finance related right now and teaching on the side). Take upper level business classes and work on your math skills; try to get to the highest math level you can. Few people, especially the business tools, know math these days -- it can be pretty impressive. Try to get an off-season job during the school year at a local bank. There are a lot of opportunities if you get creative.

You have scholarships right now, and direct admission. Saving money/time is always a win.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:16pm

@m56 .. I appreciate your advice. I didnt' get good grades for my freshman year. So I will have to work extra hard for the this semester and so on.. Are you working in the financial sector at this moment?

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:17pm

From what I've seen most Kelley kids have very high GPAs + scholarships which really gives them a boost in talking to alumni and in interviews. If you lack these, then I'm sorry I can't see your competitive edge beyond the other advantage of an extremely friendly personality. It is a state-school after all. Just check your linkedin database, everyone who works for Blackstone to DB had a scholarship and a high GPA and that's essentially they're bumperplate beyond the banking workshops, clubs, etc.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:18pm

I believe there is a program within Kelley for those who are interested in IB, and it has good placement across the street esp for a school that would otherwise be considered a nontarget. By good placement, we're talking 1-2 students at just about everywhere including GS TMT/FIG, MS M&A, BX, Laz, and top groups at other banks as well.

Stay there, do well in school and get into this program, and you'll be fine.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:20pm

Indiana-Kelley does well with a lot of MM and regional BB firms around the Chicago area, so there are definitely quite a few options available to you.

Is Kelley a Target? (Originally Posted: 02/12/2012)

In the infamous Target Vs. Non-Target thread many people agree that Kelley has better recruiting than some of the lower Ivys.. If this is true does that make Kelley a target assuming you take advantage of what the school has to offer (BHP and the Ibanking workshop)? And is Kelley of the same caliber as Stern, Haas, Ross, UVA, UNC,ect.?

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:22pm

Sorry, but Kelly is not a target school. It is possible to break in with solid networking, but it's not of the same caliber as the schools you mentioned.

I am also from Indiana... I looked into it and just saw little opportunity for entry, so I go to Ross.

It's relatively easy to get into compared to the other targets and offers good OCR.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:25pm

Kelley is not a target. It has a good reputation as a business school and the IB Workshop is great obviously, but it is not a target. Definitely not on par with McIntire/Kenan-Flagler/Haas/Ross.

I think that in terms of teaching and research, the Big Ten is on or above par with the Ivy League in most of the STEM disciplines. This happens to be borne out in US News' Engineering rankings, which, if anything, handicap state schools' large class sizes, limited funding, and lower graduation rates.

If I'm 18, and Cornell comes down to IU's cost of attendance, I am probably going to choose Cornell. Cornell has lower dropout rates and in some ways a cooler college experience. But most people forget that IU's 40% dropout rate ADDS to graduating seniors' selectivity, and the Big Ten are also much bigger and more cost-effective research institutions with a lot more stuff going on.

If there's no cost difference, take Cornell. If IU is significantly cheaper, take IU.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:29pm

I knew a Kelley once. She made a great target.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:30pm

The IB workshop placement is very good. I think at least two of MBB recruit there. Kelley is a lesser version of Georgetown MSB. Not that well known and not difficult to get into, but decent placement nonetheless (in case of G'town MSB--awesome placement).

Try to transfer to UVA, G'town or Haas for better placement though.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:34pm

ugh, same thread all over again. summary is exactly what Illini said - if there is a significant cost advantage (i.e. in state tuition, full ride scholarship, etc.) Kelly probably gives you enough a shot, at a a bargain price, that it's worth taking Kelley. If not, take the better brand (i.e. Ivy, or the schools you listed). The only point people were trying to make in that other thread is that cost can and should be a factor in choosing your school. Using arbitrary numbers, if 40% of kids from Ivy school X land gigs at Joe Blow bank, and 10% of kids from Kelley do, but you have to pay $50k per year at X, and Kelley is free, you might want to take Kelley and take the chance that you'll be in that top 10%, still land at Joe Blow bank, and do it all for free.

2 variables, instead of 1 people. not that complex.

people who go to kelley think it is way better/harder than it is in reality. It is pretty much the definition of semi-target imho not a target at all. But every kid there thinks they're set for life because they have the "kelley advantage"

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:37pm

As a Kelley student and Investment Workshop member, I believe the curriculum has prepared me well for interviews. This year, I was able to get internship interviews at every BB I applied for. However, I have done plenty of networking and completed previous internships. The bottom line is that no matter where you go, you need to work hard and meet as many people as possible. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:38pm

I went to Kelley. It is definitely a semi-target, not a target.

The IB workshop kids, however, have equal recruiting opportunities as anyone at a "real" target. The top performers from the workshop will absolutely get placed at the top BB banks in NYC. I have several friends from my class who got into GS, MS, and the rest. However, as those have said above, people not in the workshop will have a MUCH harder time getting a BB position. Sure, they can get a MM job in Chicago, but that only proves my point that it is a semi-target.

If you're looking for a Big 10-type college experience (versus the less exciting experience at a lower Ivy or small school), you could do a lot worse than Kelley. If you're focused on IB, then Ross is probably a superior option, but if you're a hard worker, you'll do fine at Kelley.

If you're interested in consulting, McK and Bain recruit there every year, although each company only takes 1-2 people. BCG recruits much less at Kelley, although a kid from my class went there.

Btw, @Illini, in what ways could the college experience at Cornell be better than IU? I know you said "in some ways", so maybe you just mean the Ivy brand on the resume. In every other possible metric I could imagine, the experience at a large state school has to be better. Obv I'm biased b/c I went to IU, but I honestly can't fathom a single reason I'd rather go to Cornell than IU, other than the brand (which, for Cornell, isn't good enough to justify going there over IU, at least for me personally). Just to be clear, I'm talking about Cornell specifically, not ivies in general.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:40pm

I believe that it is a semi-target school. I had the opportunity to visit a variety of wall street banks this winter as a part of a trip organized by my business school. At these banks there were the usual Wharton and other Ivy grads, some UVa, NYU, UMich, but there were also a few Indiana people at very prestigious banks such as Greenhill and Perella Weinberg. It's definitely a great program.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:41pm

i don't think it's a target b-school, but josh pearl, co-author of "Investment Banking" went there...much of my understanding of finance is rooted in his book, so a hat tip to him and Kelley.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:42pm

I would say no. Kelley is not a target. And I truly don't believe that it offers better recruiting than the lower Ivy's.

Check out this: http://poetsandquants.com/2011/11/28/firms-that-hire-the-most-mba-interns/4/

This article shows the number of MBA students from ~20 schools that top companies hired as interns last year. I believe you're asking about Kelley's undergrad program, opposed to the MBA program. But either way, the recruiting numbers are roughly the same. Cornell, Darden, Texas, and CM do way better than IU.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:45pm

I may consider going there OOS. With the9k scholarship for being a direct admit I could bring tuition down to about 15K, which is a fraction of the 60K I would be paying at a place like Stern. Another thing I like about Kelley is that it is a 4 year programs compared to 3 years at Ross and Haas.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:48pm

On a pure numbers basis, Kelley places near the top in terms of # of kids sent to Wall St. However, a lot of these will be BAML, UBS, DB, etc. Placement among the top firms will be more like 3-5 GS, 3-5 JPM, 1-2 MS, 0-1 Lazrard, 0-1 Blackstone, 1-2 PWP, 0-1 Greenhill, 3-4 Moelis, etc.

Workshop has a 99% placement rate (like 30/30), Seminar has a 50% placement rate (like 20/40), and probably 10-20 outside those two programs will break in.

All the BBs and most of the elite boutiques will interview, they just take less than Wharton, etc. Whether that's target or non-target, idk.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:49pm

As a Kelley alum, I think Aero and Dagwood were pretty accurate in their comments.

I would second the information from their posts, rather than some of the other misinformed comments.

Certainly not as easy to make it as it would be at an Ivy, but with hard work a bunch of kids manage to do it every year. I think the business classes are up their with any school and the athletics/partying/beautiful campus/beautiful girls will top any Ivy.

It is worth noting though, that Kelley is much stronger at placing students for Investment Banking rather than the Investment Management side of things (trading, equity research, PMW, etc).

Also, being placed in Chicago out of Kelley is significantly easier than making it to NYC.

Jun 25, 2007 - 5:53pm

Not necessarily a one-size fits all scenario. If you get a good internship...does it matter?

"Now go get your f'n shinebox!"
Jun 25, 2007 - 5:56pm

I did my analyst stint at a top BB (GS/MS/JPM) and there were 2 IU kids in my analyst class. Learned about the IU IBD program from them, and from what I gathered the IB program at IU places usually 1-2 kids at each of the large banks every year. No question that it is not a complete target but if you are a top candidate you can make it to one of the top groups from there.

Is Kelley worth it? (Originally Posted: 12/29/2015)

Hey,

I'm a high school senior who has so far been admitted OOS to IU with a direct admit to Kelley. I got shit aid though and I'm looking at ~$35k-40k/yr, which will require a bit of loans to attend (possibly $10k-15k/yr in loans). I really love IU, from the campus to the entrepreneurial focus. It is also a relief to get into the business school already. I'm waiting to hear back from my state school UNC, UVA, and Stern (I applied ED2, but I don't think I will get in. If I do, I'm looking at ~$100k in debt, which I have accepted for the ability to obtain a Stern degree). Thing is, if I don't get into Stern, I'm not entirely sure I want to do finance. I've become more interested in tech and entrepreneurship, which Kelley is really good for.

I guess my main question is Kelley (undergrad) worth the debt?

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:00pm

I don't think IU is worth going into that much debt.

If you don't get accepted elsewhere, I would go to an in-state university and attempt to transfer later (read the thread here on WSO for transfer-friendly schools.)

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:01pm

Think long, and hard about whether or not it's worth it to go into so much debt. So many kids today (mostly the school's fault) take out loans like it's a small expense without realizing the impact debt has on you.

I think- therefore I fuck
Jun 25, 2007 - 6:02pm

UNC is a way better school and will cost a lot less since you're in state (if I read your post correctly). Going there if you get in is a no brainer.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:03pm

60K for Kelley undergrad? I'd say that's reasonable. Not ideal, but definitely something you can swing. I work with a Kelley undergrad at my SaaS start up company. Great guy, very business smart and we make around 60K first job out of school (avg of the pack).

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:06pm

Kelly is worth it. Don't go to a no-name, shit state school. If you decide that you want to break into finance, you'll regret that decision. Go to UNC if you can though.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:07pm

I worked with a Kelley guy, and I also have a few good network contacts(they're a popular school for vets) who went their for grad and undergrad.

The picture I get is that doing IB from the undergrad program is very doable but not easy. If you can get into one of the IB programs(requires a perfect WASPy resume + GPA), then you will have no problems landing at a top firm.....most of which do on campus interviews. Big catch is "if" you get in. The undergrads also seem to have very good placement into related corporate finance and big4 jobs.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:09pm

I do not attend Indiana U so I can't comment on the campus itself however from what I know about it, I am struggling to understand the negative feedback that it is receiving. Its a top-10 business school according to both World News and Bloomberg. Additionally, its the most affordable school in the top-10 business schools. The difference in education from Indiana and UNC/NYU will be minimal and you'll save money. Seems like a smart decision to me, but then again I'm just a chimp, and these "King Kongs" and "Neanderthals" seem to know everything. Good Luck deciding

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:10pm

OP said UNC will be significantly cheaper than IU for him as he's in state. UNC is ranked 30th on USN vs IU at 75th. UVA over IU is also worth it regardless of any extra cost.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:16pm

Semi-target IMO. They have placed people to most of the top banks, but may not be quite as consistent. I went to school with someone that went to GS IBD in Chicago, Moelis Chicago, BAML NYC (now at HF in NY), few guys at Lehman IBD (not sure where they are at now), JPM NYC and CHI, HLHZ LA, MPLS, and to MM groups in Chicago (Blair, Baird, Mesirow, SRR, Lincoln Int'l).

So yea, if you work hard, you can land an IB job.

Aside from that, they are a target for many F500 FLDP or entry-level finance programs (i.e. Cummins, Eli Lilly, Target, General Mills, Discover, etc.).

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:17pm

Kelley's reputation is more than fine. If you work hard there it won't be an obstacle to getting a job in IB.

IU - Kelley (Originally Posted: 04/21/2013)

Hello guys,
I've been accepted to Kelley as a direct admit, and i would like to know whether Kelley is a target or a semi target. I'm an intl student and i would like to work in the US after graduation. I'm aware of Kelley's IB workshop that has a fantastic placement rate, however will the placement for Kelley be good even if i do not make it into the workshop?
I may consider transferring to Ross or Mcintire afterwards, and i was wondering if it is worth the trouble. According to the 2012 class profile of Ross, the rate for transfer students is less than 1%. I'm not too sure about Mcintire. Would the probability of being accepted as a transfer be close to zero?
Assuming that i do get into Kelley's workshop, how would i compare to attending Ross or Mcintire?

Thanks in advance!

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:21pm

Kelley is a great program. I would say Ross and Mcintire are obviously hire, but Kelley is great nonetheless.

That being said, I would caution you on making any decision based on your ability to transfer. You have no idea how you will do once you get there.

Also, what is direct admit? Is this like a 3+2 where you will graduate with both a BBA/BS and MBA?

"They are all former investment bankers that were laid off in the economic collapse that Nancy Pelosi caused. They have no marketable skills, but by God they work hard."
Jun 25, 2007 - 6:22pm

Direct admit just means you're in the business school as a freshman. This is why Kelley's admission rate is so high. After next year, however, they are getting rid of it which will probably cut admission rates in half. The workshop acceptance rate is about 40%, and is getting more competitive each year as placement gets better each year. Kelley is trending to directly compete with the uMich/UVA/UCB crowd within the next 3-5 years.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:23pm

yup, as BTbanker said, that's what a direct admit is, so i will not have to go through regular admission into Kelley. BTbanker, if what you say is true about Kelley trending to directly compete with the likes of uMich/UVA/UCB, it would seem that the education i will receive from them will be "value-added" in the years to come?

Kelley rep on Wall Street? (Originally Posted: 01/23/2007)

Hey wasup, before I make my decision to go to Kelley, what's its reputation on Wall Street. I know they are going to be a lot of Wharton's, HBS'S, and Tuck's. For this reason, am I going to get made fun of and not be respected? I was just wondering about it's prestige on Wall Street... Thanks

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:31pm

http://kelley.iu.edu/ibw/

Very prestigous, and they place extremely well within the group. If you get into the workshop, you'll have a great chance at getting placed.

Kelley School of Business recruiting power (Originally Posted: 04/21/2013)

Can anyone speak specifically to the OCR and name brand recognition for a Kelley MBA in Chicago? Obviously, Booth Kellogg and Ross are going to reign supreme, but will a Kelley MBA get you in the door a good % of the time?

Foot in the door where? What it is it that you're looking to do, exactly? It's my understanding that for CPG, Marketing, Operations, and Supply Chain Mgmt Kelley is a target, and places all over the midwest; presumably Chicago would be included. If you're looking to go BB IBD or some such, then you'd likely have a tougher time.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:37pm

IB and long term PE. Not necessarily BB, more MM. I have read a lot about their IB Workshop for UG, and they seem to have some good placement stats on their website, but I haven't heard as much about their MBA. I was wondering if anyone has run into IU grads in Chicago in the MM IB world.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:39pm

Quick background and goals:
I have two years of small business management experience following some promotions in my early 20s, transitioned to a boutique lower-MM IB as an analyst. Looking to get an MBA to solidify my transition to finance (UG was not finance specific) and to build a network in the Midwest where I can hopefully land in Chicago long term.

I have a 690 GMAT but a below average GPA, so the top tier of Biz Schools are not an option, so I felt IU would be the best fit given my goals and its credibility. Can anyone confirm my thoughts there?

Kelley UG Finance Program? - Would really like some info (Originally Posted: 04/10/2011)

Does anyone know anything about IU's finance program. I read on this board that you'll regret going the finance major route. I know they have the workshop, but what should I major in if I want to do something in banking later?
My last thread didn't get many responses and I'd really like some info on this.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:45pm

Unfortunately the search function is down, because there are multiple Kelley threads with the answers you're looking for. Cliffs:
- Major in fin+acc
- Get into the Investment Banking Workshop; placement is nearly 100%, and they have exposure to both NYC and Chicago BBs; BAML recruits heavily at IU
- If for some reason you cannot get into the IBW, get friendly with the Midwest MM space, which is still very competitive (think Baird, Blair, HLHZ, BMO, KeyBanc, etc.)

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:48pm

Doesn't matter. Most going into banking study finance and/or accounting, but that's more a function of the people that want to go into banking having an interest in finance and accounting. I know a couple kids that did Business Economics.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:51pm

If you weren't a direct admit, work your ass off to distinguish yourself from your peers. Get into the B-School, Aim for the Honors Program, and become a leader in your extracurricular passions.

If your goal is the workshop, keep your grades high and look to get some solid internships before your junior year.

Jun 25, 2007 - 6:53pm

I can also speak first hand about Kelley.
Finance/Accounting is a good route, you will definitely learn a lot. If you do this double major, you cant go go abroad and graduate on time. So if you're looking to go abroad, you'll have to stay an extra semester to get both majors or only do Finance and graduate on time.

Definitely get involved in the finance club, investment management club etc early on (I regret not doing so).
In order to get into the IB workshop, they look at past experiences but most importantly, you have to know a good deal about IB. And then its personality from there. Theres also the Investment Management workshop if you want to go into trading/Asset Management.

And if you dont get into either of those, they have the Investment Banking seminar for seniors. Slightly easier to get into. You go through a 6 week crash course and they prepare you for interview. Both the seminar and workshop have 90%+ placement in banking.
Good luck

i have a pdf of the resumes for people that were in that IB workshop, in it there was a page about where everyone in that workshop placed... it was quite a lot of people. but then i looked at the resumes and a lot of them weren't very impressive. a couple of the resumes i laughed at out loud.

im actually in the workshop myself. for those of you who dont know, the workshop has nearly a 100% placement rate into ibanks. of the 33 graduating students per workshop class, on average 1-2 accept offers at boutiques and the remaining 31 or so all BB. yea indiana doesnt sound like a great school, but the kelley business school is actually top notch--nearly 75 total banking placement FT. since the workshop is only a few years old, a majority of workshop alum are analysts or associates. give it 5 more years, and youll definitely see alum in senior positions. the workshop is already target for DB, jp, bear, BofA, goldman, Credit Suisse (chicago), UBS (chicago), and soon to be lehman.
