A top-rated degree, minus the sticker shock

In a world where online MBA programs range from $7,000 to upwards of $100k, no other program offers the credibility, accessibility, and mix of virtual and live sessions at our price point — $31,500. Your Iowa MBA is backed by our reputation and rankings, and you'll gain skills you can take to work and use from day one.

Not just any online MBA

With a Big Ten MBA on your resume, you won't have to wait for the career acceleration you want. Courses are taught by the same faculty as our nationally-ranked Professional MBA program, and you'll learn alongside committed, experienced classmates.

Learn the way you like

From real-time lectures to virtual content, you'll find just the right mix of team-based and independent study. Most courses include weekly 60–90 minute live sessions and much of the coursework can be completed on your own time. Choose one of three start times, finish up in two years, or take a bit longer — it's up to you.

Virtual gets personal

Personal attention is crucial to your success — and we deliver that. Online classes are limited to around 45 students, so you'll get to know classmates and professors on a first-name basis. Live sessions, small group projects, discussion boards, and personalized career services help you build a solid professional network.
