Tippie College of Business Welcomes MBA Students

Each year, students flock to the MBA Programs offered through the Henry B. Tippie College of Business at The University of Iowa. The Tippie School of Management offers several different MBA Programs to fit the needs of today's business students. This fall, 80 students have enrolled in the College's Full Time Program, 130 have enrolled in the Evening MBA Program, and an additional 43 have started the Executive MBA Program.

The Full-time MBA Program has attracted 80 students from 11 countries and 18 states within the U.S. The average Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is 640 while the average Grade Point Average (GPA) is 3.29. The average student has 3.44 years of work experience. Students in the Full-time Program complete their degree in two years. As of this fall, 78 students will be entering the second year of the Full Time Program and are expected to graduate in spring 2003.

The 130 students newly enrolled in the Evening MBA Program have an average GMAT of 580; an average GPA of 3.2; and an average of eight years on the job. These 130 students join more than 500 students currently enrolled in the Evening MBA Program, which is offered in Cedar Rapids, Newton, Des Moines, and the Quad Cities. Evening MBA students typically work full-time and complete the program in 3-4 years.

This fall, 43 students start the two-year Executive MBA Program. Most students in this program are sponsored by their employer and attend all-day classes on alternating Fridays and Saturdays. Currently, 49 students are enrolled in the second year of the Executive MBA Program.

The College also offers a Dual Degree Program for students who wish to gain an Executive MBA from The University of Iowa and a Masters in Engineering from Iowa State University. The 31 students in the first class of this program reconvene this fall and will graduate in December 2002. A second class is tentatively scheduled to begin in January 2003.

Also in January 2003, the Executive MBA Program will be offered for the first time in Des Moines at the Krause Center, 6100 Grand Avenue.
