Experienced classmates

Join some of the brightest and the most upwardly mobile professionals from within the state and around the country in the Iowa MBA program. We attract students from both Iowa and the entire U.S., which means your classes won't be dominated by employees of a single company. You'll connect with everyone from tech entrepreneurs to professional athletes, and from a wide variety of undergraduate majors.

Numbers aside, your classmates will be your community for the next few years and long after. You’ll learn from their experiences, build a powerful network, and form connections that last a lifetime. Learn more about them below.
