The electives are offered at night in Des Moines and Ames.

Quality is Assured

Our part-time core classes are taught by the same professors as the full-time MBA program, ensuring quality throughout the Iowa State MBA.  The full-time and part-time curriculum is identical.  

Practical Business Skills

In today’s business environment, teamwork is essential to success. The Iowa State part-time MBA program has built the team concept into the core curriculum, giving students the opportunity to practice leading a group of individuals and capitalizing on members’ strengths. Teams are determined at the start of the fall semester and are blended with diversity in mind.

Communication skills are important assets in the work place. The Iowa State MBA program gives students the chance to improve their communication techniques through its classroom format. Class sizes are small, with 35-40 students per class. Interaction between students and faculty is considered an essential component to the classroom experience. Students are expected to raise questions and actively participate in discussions in class. Case studies, projects, and presentations are regular assignments, improving students’ critical thinking and public speaking skills. 

Admission

Unique to our part-time students, admission into the MBA program is available for fall, spring or summer. You must be employed on a full-time basis and have a bachelor’s degree in any major from an accredited institution to be considered for part-time admission. The GMAT exam is mandatory for all applicants.  Although not an absolute minimum, a score of at least 500 on the GMAT is generally expected for admission.
