IU Bloomington Kelley Class Size

I recently got accepted to Kelley for undergrad. I have been doing more research on the school to make sure it’s the one for me. I was wanting to know more about the class sizes. I know most public school have really big classes. I want to know how easy it is to communicate with professors, and if they are mostly lecture style classes.
Basically, I just want more information on class teacher to student ratios, and the ability to have more direct communication with professors.
Any and all information will be useful. Thanks!

My son was a 2018 graduate of Kelley and he said that amount of students per class varies on which class that you take. If it’s a basic accounting class that everyone has to take then it could be 150 students. When you get too what you are majoring in it’s 25-30 students. And he said the discussion part of classes had approximately 30 students. He never had a problem talking to the professor when he needed to. They are very accessible. When you get to I-Core he said that you will work your ass off and that you will be enjoying the challenge while you are doing it. He also said that you will be glad when it’s over as well. If you get into Kelley Honors then the class sizes will be smaller. He got an interview for Honors but did not get in. I think that you need a 3.7 GPA for an interview and they only take about 30% or so. I hope that this helps you and if someone else has any other information then please share it. Good Luck with whatever decision you make.

@James1963 what is I-core? Investment banking focus? How did he find the competition for full time jobs and summer internships?

Kelley seems to have more top-tier employment opportunities than all the other Big 10 schools except Northwestern and Michigan. Wisconsin also seems quite competitive while Ohio State, Penn State and Maryland are solid but not as many top-tier positions.

I-Core is where a group of 5-6 Kelley students formulate a 100-120 page business plan. They basically start a company from the bottom up. Product, marketing, supply chain, etc….The I stands for Intensive-Core because they do it in a very compressed period of time. There are a lot of internships and they are competitive. Get good grades and build relationships with your professors and the businesses that visit the campus and your student will have a lot of opportunities during their school years and after graduation. Hope that this helps and Good Luck
