Experienced classmates

Join some of the brightest and the most upwardly mobile professionals from around the country in Iowa’s Online MBA program. We draw from a number of U.S. states, which means your classes won't be dominated by students from a single employer. They'll run the gamut from tech entrepreneurs to professional athletes, and from a wide variety of undergrad 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.
