Iowa's #1 part-time MBA for working professionals

Your career is in a solid place. But getting to the next goal in your five-year plan is going to require more know-how than you can get on the job. That's where the Professional MBA Program comes in. Keep your career on the fast track while you earn an MBA, and gain skills that bring your goals within reach, now and for years to come.

Acceleration, not interruption

Think a top-ranked MBA means leaving your job? Think again. The state’s #1-ranked part-time MBA is also its most flexible, designed to balance work, family, and courses. Most classes meet just one night a week. Learn more.

Hone skills, move up the ladder

Gain know-how that you can apply today and a career boost that pays off. An MBA is how marketers get familiar with a 10K, or how sales managers understand logistics. Knowing how decisions impact the entire business is the key to moving up. See program overview.
