The Indiana University Kelley School of Business Global Dean's Council was created out of a shared aspiration to enhance the school's international efforts with IU alumni and business leaders, and to funnel expertise and opportunities to Kelley students from a diverse group of leaders and cultural backgrounds.
The Kelley Global Dean’s Council is composed of 32 CEOs, vice presidents and business leaders, who represent all ranges of industry and are primarily located throughout Asia, ASEAN and other regions of the world. It advises on institutional goals, school strategies, and curricula with an international lens. The council is also actively involved with long-term goal planning for the school.
"The Global Dean's Council not only provides inputs used in the Kelley School's programming and international curriculum but also helps to build international exposure for the school and university," said Idaeline 'Idie' Kesner, dean of the Kelley School of Business and the Frank P. Popoff Chair of Strategic Management. "That exposure helps with recruiting and creating a pipeline of students from around the world while also offering employment opportunities for our students in the countries represented."
