Doermer School of Business MBA Programs

“I selected the professional MBA program from IPFW due mainly to the experience I had with the faculty during my undergraduate studies, along with the program format and timeline which suited my particular needs. I was able to accomplish a lifelong goal in only 11 months and can now apply the knowledge gained to further my career.”
