Several colleges and universities throughout the state have scored high on a national list for online education. The U.S. News and World Report 2017 Best Online Programs rankings include five Indiana schools in various business-related categories.

The Indiana University Kelly School of Business in Bloomington placed first in the Online Graduate Business Programs category for veteran and non-veteran students. Kelly Dean Idie Kesner says "we're continually adding opportunities for online students to engage with each other, with faculty and career coaches, and with businesses; it's definitely not a one-size-fits-all program. It's also important to note that, while some schools outsource their online programs, all of our classes are taught by Kelley faculty, the same faculty who teach in our full-time and part-time MBA programs."
