The University of Iowa offers a Executive Master of Business Administration. Build your business skills alongside other top leaders. Earn your MBA in just 16 months, with online courses and executive coaching included.


We’ve re-imagined business education for experienced professionals—leaders who demand a higher level of classroom experience. The courses are probably on point with your expectations from a top-ranked MBA: management, finance, analytics, marketing, strategy, and more. The chairs, whiteboards, and overhead projectors are not that different, either.

This Executive Master of Business Administration is offered by The University of Iowa. But having a CFO in your study group is different. So are expert faculty who tailor their courses to your experience level—and provide personal executive coaching. That, in essence, is the Iowa Executive MBA value proposition. Classmates with diverse backgrounds. Lively discussions with smart people like you. Professors who respect your experience. All from one of the best business schools in the country.

Learning Outcomes

  • What you need to get to the next level is likely different from what has helped you succeed in the past. Leading at a high level requires you to draw from multiple disciplines: change management, organizational leadership, financial expertise, marketing strategy, supply chain, business and data analytics. The Iowa Executive MBA helps you upgrade your cross-functional understanding of business and grounds it in business strategy. 
  • Plus, the immediacy of an EMBA is unparalleled. Apply your newfound analytics knowledge to optimize how many flu shots to order during peak flu season. Draw on your Dynamics of Negotiations simulations to break new ground in your contract negotiations. Your employer has as much, if not more, to gain from the revitalized you.
