Accelerate Your Career with an MBA Degree
The Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program at the University of Northern Iowa is designed for professionals like you who want to make a lasting impression on the business world. We'll broaden your mind by exposing you to diverse people, places, and situations - while challenging you to better yourself and your organization.
FLEXIBILITY That Professionals Demand
Rather than requiring students to follow a pre-set program of study, we evaluate each student's background and time the student can commit to the program to develop an individualized program of study that fits unique needs and situations.
Reasonable Completion Time
The UNI MBA program was designed to serve both full-time and part-time students. The curriculum and our modular scheduling were protocol specifically designed to allow qualified, full-time students to complete the MBA program in a single year. The result is substantial savings in tuition and other college costs, while avoiding the lost income associated with spending a second year in school. Part-time students can also take advantage of our curriculum and scheduling protocol to complete the program in a two- to four-year period, depending upon available time. Worried about a professional transfer? We can help plan your MBA program to accommodate your career path.
Convenient Course Schedule
Part-time students can meet job demands while attending conveniently-timed classes. All MBA courses are offered in the evening from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m., with occasional Saturday meetings. Class schedules are provided two to three months in advance, allowing time to coordinate work and academic demands.
QUALITY That Professionals Deserve
In addition to a University with a national reputation for quality education, our small and selective MBA program has earned a Best Business School recognition from The Princeton Review. At the MBA level, quality is achieved through small classes, faculty and peer interaction, full-time faculty with research and consulting experience who are focused on teaching cutting-edge applied courses, and a student body eager to learn. That quality is evident in the strong ratings UNIBusiness earned in achieving Princeton Review recognition.
Do you prefer service providers certified at the highest levels in their fields? Are you cautious when evaluating non-certified or non-ISO 9000 compliant suppliers? Why should your MBA be different? AACSB International is the "gold standard" of business accreditation. Fewer than 5% of business schools achieve AACSB accreditation and UNIBusiness is in that select group. When choosing an MBA program, AACSB accreditation is a reliable, objective measure of quality assurance.
Through Hard Work and HighStandards
In the UNI MBA program, you will join a diverse mix of students who have met our high admission standards. The MBA faculty, for its part, sets high performance expectations. The result is a stimulating and challenging classroom environment where students learn from both faculty and peers, a generative blend critical to discovery at the highest levels.
Focus On Business Applications
Shouldn't your new knowledge be useful? An MBA education means more than just ingesting the latest theories. Students must be able to transfer those theories to real-world situations. We utilize cases, computer simulations, and other learning techniques to ensure students can make that transition from theory to practice. The entire program concludes with a live, client-based, capstone consulting experience. We concentrate on helping students develop the portfolio of skills necessary to meet the demands of a constantly changing, highly competitive, global business world.
