Master of Business Administration
One major asset that I gained from my education at UIU, is that professors often encourage critical thinking, and this is one of the major aspects that carries over to the professional field. Upper Iowa has been instrumental in my personal and professional development. Before Upper Iowa I was at a crossroads, in terms of education, but this institution provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime.

Successful managers think ahead, understand the importance of relationships, and drive their organization forward. The MBA at UIU prepares students with both the current skills needed and the skills to be adaptable in the future.
