About the UNI College of Business

The UNI College of Business was officially established in 1981. From the moment we opened our doors, we have been focused on student success in and out of the classroom.

UNI Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), thanks to our innovative, challenging and contemporary curriculum offered across all our various majors, minors, and certificates.

Our MBA program has locations in Mason City, Shanghai and Hong Kong and has been named a Best Business School by the Princeton Review every year for over a decade.

Students who come to UNI Business receive an education that gives them different perspectives and prepares them for an innovative, international world of business, which continues to expand globally.  We place a focus on our study abroad program. In the last few years, we have gone from a student participation rate in international study programs of 1-in-19 to 1-in-5 — the highest participation rate among University of Northern Iowa colleges.
