Academics

Semester-length International Opportunities

Tippie Full-time MBA students can choose to study with one of our partner institutions for one semester during their two-year program. Opportunities include:

Erasmus UniversityRotterdam School of Management (RSM) Exchange

The partnership between Tippie and Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) provides a semester exchange opportunity for students. The program is limited to one Tippie Full-time MBA candidate each fall or spring semester. The exchange requires a commitment to spend the fall or spring term of the student's second year in Rotterdam. If the exchange is completed in the fall, the student will return to Iowa in the spring to complete his or her Tippie MBA. Spring exchanges run from the end of January through mid-May. The student will need to work with Tippie staff to ensure that all academic requirements are met before graduation.

Universities Study Abroad Consortium (USAC)

As a member of the USAC, Iowa MBA students can take graduate business courses at several different USAC sites. Interested students will need to meet with their advisor to ensure that work completed abroad can be applied toward their Tippie MBA degree.

Want to expand your personal and professional network by working side-by-side with students from other locations? The summer programs available to Tippie MBA students give you a variety of options to expand your horizons.
