What we look at
Your test scores
We accept both the GMAT and GRE on an equal basis. If you take the test more than once, we’ll look at your highest total score. If you’re not a native English speaker, we’ll need a TOEFL or IELTS score to show your language skills.
Your admissions interview
Interviews are a one-on-one conversation with a member of our admissions team. They last about an hour and are by invitation only. All candidates who visit campus will receive an interview.
Your academic record
A bachelor’s degree is required to apply. We review your transcripts, which you can upload when you fill out the application. If you’re admitted, we’ll need official transcripts, but unofficial copies are fine for now.
Admission for women, Veterans, and college seniors
An MBA classroom full of students from all walks of life makes everyone's MBA experience richer. To attrack these unique-background students, we've created special admission programs for women, military veterans, and college seniors.
Women aren’t equally represented in the ranks of business leaders, and they’re not making up half of MBA classrooms. We’re helping that goal become reality with programming and scholarships.
Veterans and active-duty U.S. military get extra support through scholarships, an accelerated admission process, and employment programs while enrolled.
The Take2 Deferred Admission program secures your seat in the Iowa MBA while you gain valuable work experience. Your spot in the Iowa MBA Program—including scholarships—will be waiting for you.
