You deserve the best business education.

UNIBusiness has been recognized as a Best Business School by the Princeton Review for over a decade. I take great pride in this recognition because its foundation is based on the feedback from our students. Our student satisfaction rating puts us in the top 20% of schools recognized by Princeton Review. As Dean, this recognition tells me our students believe we are achieving our core mission–which is student success.

Student satisfaction comes from an environment that focuses on achievement, student achievement, YOUR achievement.  Our faculty provide classroom experiences that prepare you for the high expectations of employers. Faculty are connected to those employers and can make recommendations for internships and jobs after graduation. Our placement rate, averaging 97%+, is proof positive that employers will be trying to hire you.

Our majors prepare you with the knowledge and skills expected by those employers, including sought after STEM fields such as Accounting, Finance, Real Estate, Management Information Systems, and Economics. The curriculum provides a broad base, including knowledge and skills in the evolving area of business analytics, so that you can suggest solutions and innovations that solve real business problems.

Our Professional Readiness Program focuses on helping you transition from student to business professional. This program ensures you have the skills needed to stand out (in a good way) and hit the ground running in the workplace. It will put you in close contact with high-level executives and corporate recruiters. You can never network too soon, too often or with too many people. Again, helping you fast-track your career start!

We also help you plan, earn, and articulate your own professional distinction, giving you a competitive advantage in the job search. You will be given options that allow you to
 

  • Earn a professional credential, such as the CPA, CFA, CFP and others,
  • Earn a professional certification, such as Microsoft Excel Specialist or Google Adwords
  • Improve your cultural intelligence through a study abroad experience
  • Gain applied work experience through a relevant internship experience
  • Participate in research that prepares you for graduate level work
  • Gain leadership experience through participation in a student organization

I encourage you to visit the UNI campus. After you discover all that is offered by the University of Northern Iowa and this business college, I’m confident you’ll see that your potential as a student and soon-to-be business professional is limitless.

 

Go Panthers!
