Graduate Certificate and Online M.B.A.

How to apply to the Business Management Certificate program

The Business Management Certificate for Eye Care Professionals is designed to be completed over the course of 12 months.

After you’ve earned your Business Management Certificate, you can transfer up to 12 of your credit hours to the Online M.B.A. with emphasis in the Business of Eye Care. Once you transfer your credits, you’ll have already completed one third of the credits required to graduate with an M.B.A.

Both the certificate and M.B.A. are offered through Kelley Executive Degree Programs.

Step 1: Apply through Kelley

There are two parts to the Kelley application. The questions that follow part one are specific to Executive Degree Programs, while part two questions are general for Indiana University graduate schools. Your application is not complete until you submit both parts of the application.

Step 2: Apply through IU

After you have submitted your application to the Kelley School of Business, you will receive an email with instructions on how to apply through IU. You will need to upload the following materials to complete your application:

  • Resume
  • Personal statement (500 words or less)
  • Letter of recommendation
  • Post-secondary transcripts

The M.B.A. in the Business of Eye Care requires that official transcript documentation be sent directly to the Kelley School of Business. If you intend to transition to the M.B.A. program, consider having your official transcripts sent at this time.
