International studies (co-major only)

Kelley School of Business

Students are required to complete a primary major within the Kelley School of Business in addition to pursuing the international studies major.

International business has evolved well past imports and exports. Many U.S. companies are multinational with production units in numerous foreign countries. Because of that, private enterprise in the United States has become more intimately concerned with the economic, political, and social trends of foreign nations. International studies majors at Kelley Indianapolis take on the challenges of doing business in the global marketplace by adding an international perspective to their primary majors.

Admission by certification

Current IU Indianapolis students no longer have to submit an application to be admitted from University College to the Kelley School of Business Undergraduate Program. You'll be notified when the admission requirements are met. To certify into the Kelley School of Business from University College, you'll need to meet one of the sets of admission criteria. You'll be certified as soon as you meet either set of criteria.

Certification process
  • Be sure to list your major as pre-business, pre-accounting, pre-finance, pre-management, pre-HR management, pre-marketing, or pre-supply chain management with your University College advisor (international dimension and real estate co-majors may be chosen after certification).
  • You'll automatically be reviewed for certification each semester after the final grades post.
  • If you meet the eligibility requirements, the Kelley School of Business admissions team will reach out to you via your IU email account regarding your certification.
  • Certification must be accepted by the student for certification to be finalized.
