Receptions For Des Moines MBA Programs Set For Oct. 28-Nov. 21

Working professionals in the Des Moines area can learn more about the University of Iowa's Executive (EMBA) and Evening MBA programs at a series of information sessions this fall.

The information sessions for the EMBA are scheduled for Mondays at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 28, Nov. 4, 11, and 18 at the W.A. Krause Center for Entrepreneurial Education, 6100 Grand Ave. in Des Moines. Information about both EMBA and Evening MBA classes will be available at a Thursday, Nov. 21 session at the Krause Center, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The Henry B. Tippie School of Management at the UI offers two graduate programs to serve working professionals in the Des Moines area. The Evening MBA is designed for employees who would prefer to take their classes in the evening over a three-year period, while the EMBA program is designed for experienced professionals who can attend classes on alternating Fridays and Saturdays over 18 months.

Since 1978, the EMBA Program has been held on the Iowa City campus. Now that program has been expanded to Des Moines to better serve central and western Iowa companies. The Des Moines-based, 21-month EMBA program will begin on Jan. 13, 2003, with classes meeting on alternating Fridays and Saturdays at the Krause Center. The Tippie School will admit approximately 40 professionals in a four-semester program that will broaden and deepen students' business knowledge, enhance their leadership skills, and sharpen their strategic focus, all while continuing to excel in their careers.

The Tippie School has been offering Evening MBA classes at the Krause Center since 1999, serving about 200 students each year. The program is designed for working professionals who was to recognize the long-term benefits of a graduate business degree. The curriculum is designed for students representing a variety of backgrounds, undergraduate majors, and professional experiences. Spring semester classes for the Evening MBA begin Jan. 21, 2003.

Classes in both programs meet in the Krause Center, where the latest teaching tools, computer systems, and presentation and analysis software are available.
