"My MBA from IPFW has afforded me opportunities that I had never had. It opened me up to a new career field which I never knew existed, but it turned out I was extremely good at! Shortly after graduating I was offered a position in Supply Chain Management at one of the world's leading airlines. I have progressed in my job faster than anyone else who started with me, and I am positive that my MBA from IPFW gave me that upper hand. I have so many opportunities with my MBA that I had never considered before. Instead of worrying about finding a career, I found myself struggling to decide which career to choose."

Message from the Director

Our Indiana University MBA is unique in a number of ways.  As the only AACSB accredited* school in northeast Indiana, we have faculty who are skilled at channeling their research excellence into inspiring learning experiences.  These learning experiences, in turn, help create the innovative learning community we have at IPFW.

While a number of schools offer business education, at IPFW we are seeking to develop transformational leaders.  The business leaders of tomorrow will possess confidence without attitude.  They will strive to go beyond themselves to make their world a better place.  Please inquire further to see if the IPFW MBA is right for you.

 *AACSB accreditation involves a certification process focused on enforcement of rigorous standards and continuous improvement.  Only 5% of business schools globally are AACSB accredited.
