David Chivers

Pivot from young leader to president

David Chivers had confidence  – and flexibility. An Iowa MBA showed him that he could work with the best in every area.

“The Iowa MBA program reinforced the idea that I could be in the C-suite, that I could be at the highest levels."

By the time he finished school, Chivers nabbed a director-level position. He quickly moved on to executive-level positions at The Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones, before returning to Iowa to be president of The Des Moines Register.
