Indiana University - Kelley Announces New MBA Programs for Educators

Program to include a year-long clinical experience and three years of mentoring

Indiana University's Kelley School of Business has announced that it will launch a new MBA program aimed at educators, as part of the Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship program.

The program will include academics, along with a year-long clinical experience and three years of mentorship by faculty members from IU's School of Education.

The academic part of the program will begin in the summer and will be delivered over an 18 month period. About one-fifth of the program will be taught by faculty members from the School of Education. Some courses will be delivered online.

The program will also include a capstone experience, which will be carried out in participants' school systems, with guidance from mentors.

The Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership helps provide MBA education for educational leaders from certain states. Fellows receive a stipend to cover the full cost of their MBA as well as other expenses. The overall goal of the MBA fellowship is to "increase the quality and relevance of principal and superintendent education," according to a statement from IU - Kelley. Among other goals, the new program will help participates lead organizational change in their school systems.

IU - Kelley's first MBA for Educators cohort is set to start next summer.

Other schools that offer MBA programs as part of the fellowship program include:

  • The University of Indianapolis
  • Indiana State University
  • New Mexico State University
  • University of New Mexico
  • The Milwaukee School of Engineering

Although very few business schools offer specialized MBA programs in education, a number of US-based schools—such as the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business—allow MBA students to combine their degrees with an MA in Education.
