Iowa State University offers an integrated, concurrent program that leads to a bachelor’s degree and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.

The concurrent MBA 3+2 program is designed to be completed in five academic years, with three years of undergraduate coursework followed by two years of concurrent MBA and undergraduate courses. It is possible to apply up to twelve credits toward both the undergraduate and MBA degrees.

Why apply to the concurrent MBA?

Knowledge and understanding of business are essential for career advancement. The concurrent MBA provides the opportunity for students to obtain the needed business knowledge and professional skills while still at Iowa State University. Students often recognize the importance of a broad understanding of business, even as early as in their internship/co-op experiences.

An advanced business degree may well be necessary for your career, sooner or later. Why not now?
