NIACC to host UNI MBA program



MASON CITY – The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is partnering with North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) to offer its MBA degree program on the NIACC campus. The first cohort of students will begin the program in January 2017.

This MBA degree is an executive-style program intended for business professionals. To make the program accessible to working adults, classes will be held on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Each course will be taught over an 8 to 11 week time frame.

“This new program highlights NIACC and UNI’s ongoing commitment to providing students with unique opportunities to advance their education,” said NIACC President Steve Schulz. “By bringing the program to the NIACC campus, we give students the opportunity to belong to a cohort of students with similar goals. The in-person aspect of a graduate program, as opposed to an all online option, allows students to learn from their peers, make connections, and advance their careers at the same time.”

The UNI MBA program has been named a “Best Business School MBA” by the Princeton Review. MBA graduates typically see an average salary increase of 46-50%, according to academic studies.

UNI MBA Program Director Dale Cyphert shared, “We are delighted to be partnering with NIACC to bring this distinctive program to the Mason City area. Professionals across the region will now have access to our highly respected MBA program conveniently close to where they live and work.”

There are currently five seats still available. Interested students must apply by December 1, 2016 to be considered for the January cohort. More information about the program is available on the UNI website at business.uni.edu/MBAMasonCity.
