The IPFW MBA Difference

In an ever-changing global environment, professionals who make effective and ethical business decisions are in high demand.  IPFW’s MBA programs help develop these skills and are offered in two different program formats to fit students’ backgrounds and busy lives.

The IPFW Difference

  • Degree Recognition.  Earn an MBA from Indiana University close to home.
  • Highest Accreditation. IPFW is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business  (AACSB-International) which is the highest level of accreditation that can be obtained.  IPFW offers the only AACSB-International accredited business school in Northeast Indiana.
  • High-quality instruction.
  • Small class sizes.


"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."
