On the spot - an accelerated, 90-minute admissions event

Professional MBA Program: On the Spot

University of Iowa’s Professional MBA Program is designed for busy working professionals like you. This innovative new event takes the work (and the wait) of starting your MBA off your already-full plate.

Attending On the Spot allows you to get an acceptance decision in just 90 minutes. Simply bring your current resume and a copy of your academic transcripts, then listen to an informational presentation about what our program has to offer. When the presentation's over, we'll provide you with a PreMBA decision and next steps to start classes.

What is PreMBA Status?

PreMBA is a special status that allows you to begin taking classes immediately without completing an MBA entrance exam (i.e., the GMAT or GRE). You can take up to 5 courses in PreMBA status, with all your credits going toward your MBA. You'll be enrolled in the same courses as formally admitted students, with the same great faculty, services, and benefits.
