Des Moines, IA — The Ivy College of Business professional (part-time) MBA program is the best MBA program in Des Moines, according to the annual poll taken by Business Record readers.

We offer this program in the heart of Des Moines, in Capital Square. It’s a quality program that offers flexibility for professionals who seek career advancement in about two years.”
