See what students say:


It’s not hard to understand why MBA students would be compelled to attend University of Northern Iowa. Indeed, it’s a “well-respected business school” and offers “competitive tuition” rates. And, with a very accommodating class schedule, it’s clearly a program that’s designed to support individuals who are “working full-time.” In fact, many of the “major businesses in the area send employees [to UNI],” which leads to some fabulous networking opportunities.

Academically, MBA candidates are privy to “small classes” that allow for individual attention. Moreover, courses tend to place “an emphasis on teamwork.” Students especially rave about the capstone business consulting project which “takes everything the students have learned and challenges them to apply [that] knowledge to local businesses or nonprofits with the guidance of mentors.” The capstone is a “fantastic” educational experience and these MBAs relish the “opportunity to solve a real business problem.”

Additionally, UNI professors “bring a lot of experience and knowledge to the MBA program.” For the most part, they are also “responsive to students’ needs,” and they “know [how to] present the material well.” The “efficient” administration earns high marks as well. As one second-year gushes, “The amount of administrative . . . support is amazing relative to the number of students. Turnaround on questions is very fast and the administration can support an advising need in short-notice.” And, finally, perhaps this first-year says it best by simply referring to the faculty and staff as “awesome.”
