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.
