Launch your business career with a Master of Finance degree from Tippie College of Business. Undergraduate students at the University of Iowa can earn their MS in addition to their BBA, BA, or BS through the Undergraduate to Graduate (U2G) program—a faster, smarter way to earn a master’s degree.

This program is open to all undergraduate majors at Iowa.
No GMAT or GRE is required.

Save time

Count 10-15 credit hours of coursework towards both your graduate and undergraduate degrees. Knock a semester off your program or free up time for you to develop deeper specialization in Finance.

Save money

Save big by paying the undergraduate tuition rate for the 10-15 hours of graduate coursework you'll complete in your final undergraduate year.

Get ahead

Don't put off earning your master's until after you graduate. Start your finance career with a respected degree that already sets you far ahead of peers who hit the job market with their undergraduate degree alone.
