The DePauw Management Accelerator Program is a course that will help you develop those business and professional skills that will supplement your liberal arts education to help you be successful in diverse organizational settings. While your liberal arts education has helped you develop your critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills, the management program will introduce you to the business principles, theories and coursework that will help you implement your liberal arts into an organizational setting.
The course will be taught by faculty members from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business. They will teach all the course sessions that take place in Bloomington, at DePauw and in Indianapolis.
This program is created for DePauw students of all majors and backgrounds and will provide you with lessons that enable you to most effectively utilize your skills in a variety of business, professional and organizational settings.
Each course will include all of the students who are accepted into the program. While the final size will be determined by the number of successful applicants, the program will be capped at 50 students per year.
Yes, you will be expected to work on evenings and weekends. Classes are scheduled from Monday through Saturday each week, and you will be expected to complete assignments in the evening just as you would in any other course you have taken at DePauw.
Details about pricing and financial support can be found on the program page on Horizons. The fee covers all materials for the course that will be taught completely by faculty members of the Kelley School, along with meals and lodging for one week at Indiana University Bloomington and meetings in Indianapolis. Similar programs at institutions such as University of Chicago and Dartmouth College are significantly more expensive than the DePauw Management Accelerator Program.
Please note: students can only apply during the early spring semester for Winter Term the following academic year. If the program is seeking applications, you will see an Apply button on the Horizons page. If no such button is there, the application is closed. You can email Raj Bellani, dean of experiential learning and career planning, for additional information about reserving a spot for the program.
While we cannot guarantee an internship placement with this program (internship availability will vary based on students' professional interests), the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement will facilitate summer internships for all students through the TigerTracks system. Students are also encouraged to utilize the DePauw alumni network as well as their personal networks of friends and relatives.
This is an intense program, with rigorous classes and coursework expected of you through the program. As a result, we want to make sure that you are aware of and prepared for the level of work that will be expected of you. If you do not have a 3.0 GPA, but feel that your current grades do not reflect your abilities as a student, you can petition the Dean of Experiential Learning and Career Planning at DePauw for admission into the program.
The course will begin on the first day of Winter Term, and will include coursework on location at Indiana University in Bloomington, at DePauw (Greencastle), with visits in the greater Indianapolis area during that time. Additional information will be emailed to students who sign up to participate in the course.
