What is the Liberal Arts Education Program?  

The Liberal Arts Management 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.

Is there evening and weekend work associated with this class?

Why is there a course fee attached to the DePauw-Kelley Program?

The course will cost $3,300, with limited financial assistance available for those students with greatest demonstrated financial need.  Details about pricing and financial support can be found on the application site 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 Liberal Arts Management Program.

Do you guarantee summer internship placements after taking this 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.

Why is there a minimum 3.0 GPA for this program?

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.
