UI offers Evening MBA courses in Des Moines and Newton

NEWTON, Iowa -- Working business professionals in the Des Moines/Newton area can pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the Henry B. Tippie College of Business Administration, choosing from evening and weekend classes starting Aug. 21.

The UI's Evening MBA program is offering marketing and securities analysis classes at the W.A. Krause Center for Entrepreneurial Education at 6100 Grand Ave. in Des Moines. Classes in human resources management, strategic management, managerial economics and statistics are being offered at the Newton campus.

"Our curriculum is designed for college graduates who want to upgrade their skills for a professional career in business or the public sector," said Colleen Downie, director of the Evening MBA Program. "Students come to the program from a variety of backgrounds, majors, and professional experience and really thrive on the high-quality educational experience our faculty provide."

To earn a degree, students must be admitted to the program and complete a total of 45 credit hours. Space is available for non-admitted students who want to take classes in the fall semester prior to formal admission.

Tuition and fees are $882 for a three-credit-hour course. A deferred payment plan and financial aid are available.

The UI also offers Evening MBA classes in the Quad Cities and Cedar Rapids. Registration for the MBA classes is now under way via the Internet, or by phone, fax or mail.
