Receptions For Des Moines MBA Programs Set For Oct. 28-Nov. 21
Working professionals in the Des Moines area can learn more about the University
of Iowa's Executive (EMBA) and Evening MBA programs at a series of information
sessions this fall.
The information sessions for the EMBA are scheduled for Mondays at 6:30

Krause Center, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The Henry B. Tippie School of Management at the UI offers two graduate programs
to serve working professionals in the Des Moines area. The Evening MBA is
designed for employees who would prefer to take their classes in the evening
over a three-year period, while the EMBA program is designed for experienced
professionals who can attend classes on alternating Fridays and Saturdays
over 18 months.
Since 1978, the EMBA Program has been held on the Iowa City campus. Now
that program has been expanded to Des Moines to better serve central and western
Iowa companies. The Des Moines-based, 21-month EMBA program will begin on
Jan. 13, 2003, with classes meeting on alternating Fridays and Saturdays at
the Krause Center. The Tippie School will admit approximately 40 professionals
in a four-semester program that will broaden and deepen students' business
knowledge, enhance their leadership skills, and sharpen their strategic focus,
all while continuing to excel in their careers.
The Tippie School has been offering Evening MBA classes at the Krause Center
since 1999, serving about 200 students each year. The program is designed
for working professionals who was to recognize the long-term benefits of a
graduate business degree. The curriculum is designed for students representing
a variety of backgrounds, undergraduate majors, and professional experiences.
Spring semester classes for the Evening MBA begin Jan. 21, 2003.
Classes in both programs meet in the Krause Center, where the latest teaching
tools, computer systems, and presentation and analysis software are available.
