Prospective Students

Business is an adventure. It begins here.

There’s never been a more exciting time to build a career in business! In today’s global marketplace, there are no limits to what motivated, experienced, educated individuals can accomplish. Your adventure begins in the College of Business at Iowa State University located in the Gerdin (pronounced Jer-deene) Business Building on campus.


We will help you become an educated, well-rounded business professional. You’ll understand how the world of business has evolved, and how constantly changing social, technological, political, legal and economic forces shape its future.


Undergraduate students will enter the College of Business as a pre-business student, which is your status until you complete the requirements to declare a major after three to four semesters. If you are not yet sure what business major you wish to pursue, we encourage you to explore your options during your semesters in pre-business.
