Interdisciplinary Certificates

Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP)

LAMP is a certificate program that bridges the liberal arts and business. By combining student interests with a foundation in management courses, LAMP prepares students to influence and direct what matters to them.

Every student in the program takes a set of courses from the IU College of Arts and Sciences and the IU Kelley School of Business, as well as LAMP specific courses. This unique offering prepares students to better understand the relationship between business and society. Students are taught to develop and defend strong arguments, analyze and interpret texts and data to find answers to important questions, and draw on multiple perspectives, as well as disciplinary traditions, to analyze a given issue or problem.

Designed for students with a variety of majors, LAMP builds leaders by taking all the attributes of insightful, successful leaders into account—and providing the many different kinds of learning experiences that produce them.
