The world of business is constantly evolving and we are committed to offering high quality education in a way that prepares students for their real-world experiences. We pay attention to industry trends and the needs of our students.  Graduates of the Iowa State College of Business study abroad, experience internships all over the country and go on to work in some of the most amazing places, from Main Street, Iowa to Wall Street and every place in between.  


Business is so much more than you might think!


Check out each of our majors:


Accounting The Iowa State Accounting major prepares students to analyze, synthesize and report data so others can use it to make informed decisions. The Accounting degree helps students pursue diverse careers in business and accounting including auditing, consulting, public accounting, budgeting, and forecasting.


Business Economics Business and Economics are linked in many ways, so we put them together as a major. Graduates will have a unique mix of analytical and applied business skills well-suited for employment in upper level management and public-service positions. Graduates also have solid preparation for graduate studies in law, economics, and in Master of Business Administration (MBA) programs.


Finance The Finance degree helps students pursue diverse careers in banking, investing, security analysis, insurance, government, real estate and all types of financial management.


International Business This is a secondary major for business students only. This major will prepare you for the international marketplace and help you understand the global economy. When you are finished with this second major you will be ready to begin your adventure anywhere!


Management Management is essential to every business, no matter how large or small. Students who graduate with a Management degree from the Iowa State College of Business receive a quality education that prepares them to manage people and projects in any business.


Management Information Systems The Management Information Systems (MIS) program is designed to provide students with a strong educational foundation preparing them as information system (IS) professionals. This program provides comprehensive training in the application, use, and management of information systems preparing students to provide effective information services and support.


Marketing Marketing affects every aspect of a company. Decisions include issues related to product design, pricing and market analysis, promotional planning, and selling strategies.  Our students get real-world experience and have multiple opportunities to work with many business professionals. A Marketing degree prepares students for careers in product management, advertising management, marketing research, market analysis and sales.


Supply Chain Management It might sound complicated, but it’s not. Supply Chain refers to the coordination and movement of a product from its creation and production to the point it is delivered to the customer. This could be anything from paper products to jet engines. It’s the heart and soul of every business.


Double Majors For a second major within the College of Business, you may choose another major within the College.
