Liberal Arts Management Program
The collaboration between DePauw and Indiana University's Kelley School of Business draws on students' strengths in the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
The Liberal Arts Management Program teaches students how for-profit businesses, nonprofit agencies, creative industries, and entrepreneurial start-ups and social entrepreneurship organizations are created and function.
