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.
“I will complete my Ivy MBA this April while working full time as an attorney, advocate, and adjunct. Even though I’ve achieved a fairly high level of learning in higher education including chemistry and neuroscience degrees, a law degree and a master of law degree, I returned to Iowa State to better serve the business needs of my clients. Now that I’m almost finished, I can say that goal has been officially accomplished. If you don’t think you can swing the commitment, or you don’t know where the value is, trust me you can do it and it is worth it.”
