Doermer School of Business MBA Programs

Choosing a Program

At IPFW, we want our graduates to bring leading edge thinking to their companies, which will in turn allow the Doermer School of Business to develop partnerships that will make northeast Indiana more competitive in the global marketplace.

IPFW offers two MBA programs to fit the needs of our students.  In both programs, students earn an MBA from Indiana University.  The difference lies within the program formats, features and minimum requirements for admission.
