WW MBA Partner: Indiana University
About Indiana University
Founded in 1820, Indiana University Bloomington is the flagship campus of IU’s eight campuses statewide. Innovation, creativity and academic freedom are hallmarks of our world-class contributions in business, research and the arts.
Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and the School of Education have created Indiana’s first team-based MBA for Educators with funding from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
Schools are challenged by resource constraints. In order to help schools to do more with less, the Kelley School and the IU School of Education developed a curriculum that will enable high-potential teachers to acquire the business and administrative skills necessary to influence change in their schools and communities.
At the Kelley School of Business, our students understand what it takes to grow, accomplish and persevere. That dedication—combined with an education that only the elite Kelley School can deliver—results in graduates with the skills needed to meet new challenges, to make positive change possible and to contribute from Day One.
The Indiana University School of Education is known for preparing reflective, caring and skilled educators who make a difference in the lives of their students in Indiana, throughout the United States and around the world. Faculty members from the IU School of Education are at the forefront of creating new knowledge and methodologies that improve and strengthen our communities.
Schools/Districts Working with Indiana University
We believe the schools and districts will see the most change by providing this opportunity to at least three and as many five high-potential teachers. Our team-based approach will enable those teachers selected as fellows to work together in the program to identify and tackle real-world challenges the district is facing.
The 48-credit hour program will span 18 months, beginning in the summer of 2016. The coursework during the school year is online, and fellows will live in Bloomington for one month for two consecutive summers.
Throughout the program, the fellows for each district will have a mentorship team made up of one Kelley School of Business faculty member, one School of Education faculty member and one K-12 leader from a different district. At the end of the project, the team of fellows from your district will work together to create and implement a solution to a specific challenge in your district. More information.
Tuition and Assistance at Indiana University
Each fellow selected for the program will receive a full tuition scholarship. Tuition, books and room and board for the Bloomington residency periods during the one-month summer sessions are included within the generous grant.
