Accelerated MBA Program

The IPFW Accelerated MBA Difference:

  • Earn a degree from Indiana University – the only Big-Ten MBA available in Northeast Indiana
  • Only MBA program in Northeast Indiana that is accredited by AACSB-International and only 10% of MBA programs, worldwide, possess this level of accreditation
  • Degree is completed within 11 months
  • Convenient class schedule with classes meeting on Friday nights and Saturdays
  • No GMAT Required
  • Take only 11 classes, regardless of undergraduate major
  • Small class sizes
  • High-quality instruction from full-time faculty and experienced professionals
  • Affordable tuition
  • Students progress through the program as a team


The IPFW Accelerated MBA was a very attractive option for me because of the scheduled time of the classes and the accreditation. The Friday evening and all day Saturday classes worked well with my work schedule and the 11 month duration could keep me focused on completing the
goal. I enjoyed the classroom learning with teams and the fast paced work. Having an Engineering Degree from Purdue University and over 20 years of manufacturing work experience really allowed me to see the "real world" benefits of this degree. It has rounded me out in the areas of economics, finance, accounting and marketing that will help me to lead our team into the future.

What alums are saying...

The final segment – the Marketing/Strategy session – was invaluable to me. The books are awesome resources for me in my new job and the final project was extremely beneficial to my development as a professional. It was also a very rewarding experience working with our particular not-for-profit.
