At the Iowa State University Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business, we prepare students for a future of progress — giving them the vision and skills to go out and make a difference in the world. We combine quality curriculum, internationally-known faculty, and a welcoming atmosphere to create an unmatched business education, whether students are seeking degrees at the bachelor, masters, or PhD level.
We help our students explore the world of business in meaningful ways, both inside and outside of the classroom, including internships, classroom projects, CyBIZ Lab, case competitions, and company site visits. Our students have multiple opportunities to meet and learn from top leaders in business. Many choose to study abroad and expand their global understanding of business.
We continuously evaluate our programs, innovate, and add new opportunities that fit current market demand and anticipate future business needs. Examples include the launch of an undergraduate degree in entrepreneurship, the first at a public university in Iowa, and PhD in entrepreneurship — only the eighth program in the nation. Both officially started in fall 2017, and more are planned. Our executive MBA program is the first in the Midwest to meet the needs of up-and-coming executives in the areas of food, agriculture, and biosciences.
At the Ivy College of Business, we are committed to offering a high quality education in a way that prepares students for their real-world experiences. Our students explore their passion, identify their purpose, and pursue meaningful careers to impact the world of business around them.
