CNBC's Jim Cramer heads for the heartland, as the "Mad Money Back to School Tour" sets its sights on The University of Iowa. When the Hawkeyes speak, Jim Cramer listens. From a wildly creative "pitch" on YouTube to an overzealous Cramer look-alike roaming the campus, the Iowa City locale got the attention of CNBC's hit "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer" and has been selected to host a broadcast of the program on Wednesday, November 12.

"Mad Money" will bring Cramer's classic mix of education and entertainment to some of the nation's brightest young people, and the next generation of investors, to the newly refurbished Iowa Memorial Union. Tickets to the live broadcast of "Mad Money" will be available on Wednesday, October 29, from 10 a.m.-2 the Old Capitol Mall.

"All across America's campuses I've found a genuine passion and understanding for stocks and trading on the part of students. But the unbridled Hawkeye enthusiasm and their business acumen are truly overwhelming. I feel at home there already," Cramer said.

Regina Gilgan, executive producer, "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer," said, "These are uncertain times for many, and Jim Cramer is clearly the voice Americans have turned to understand this crisis. There has never been a better moment to head to the heartland, and we are honored to bring "Mad Money" to The University of Iowa and to the young people who stand to inherit not only this crisis, but also what might be the greatest opportunity for wealth in a generation."
