Flexible curriculum that crosses disciplines

Collaboration among departments and disciplines is a key strength setting IU apart, and allowing pure innovation to take the lead.

That interdisciplinary nature can be seen across schools and campuses, including in the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, where synergistic opportunities are explored through initiatives like Digital Health.

Partners with industry, connected with our communities

IUPUI’s central location puts students in the perfect position to seize all of the city’s opportunities. Right next-door to Fortune 500 companies, health care and convention centers, government offices, and professional sports teams, Indianapolis is one of the 20 largest cities in the U.S., and the economic hub of Indiana.

But IU’s campuses span across the state—and at each location, you’ll find student life deeply intertwined with the activity of your community. The Center for Urban and Regional Excellence (CURE), an organization dedicated to raising awareness of community issues in Northwest Indiana, is one example of a rich campus-community partnership that benefits not just the campus, but the entire area.

Preparing students for top business careers

In 2019, nearly one in four IU graduates majored in a business-related field. IU grads go on to work for the world’s leading businesses in retail, software, financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and more.
