Gerdin Leaders Academy
The Gerdin Leaders Academy is a program designed to increase your involvement at the Ivy College of Business while engaging in opportunities to develop your knowledge and skills in five areas: ethics, leadership, service to community, professional development, and diversity and global perspectives.
Participants have two semesters to complete 11 activities in these areas. The Gerdin Leaders Academy is a great opportunity to build your resume and develop the skills employers want.
Business Learning Teams
The Ivy College of Business proudly offers a learning community experience each fall to transfer students and incoming first-year students through the Business Learning Team (BLT) program.
Learning communities are small groups of students who generally take one, two, or three courses together during their first semester at Iowa State University. Through your learning community, you’ll make connections with students who have similar academic goals, learn about university resources, engage in career exploration, and receive support and guidance from a peer mentor. Learning communities are designed to ease your transition to college life at Iowa State and the Ivy College of Business.
Are you looking for an extra challenge with opportunities for research and faculty interaction? Consider the University Honors Program. Ivy faculty and staff provide the support and encouragement you need to achieve the best business education possible.
Honors students complete a minimum of two honors-designated courses, at least two honors seminars, and a senior honors project where you pursue your own research interests.
