The College of Business at Iowa State University enthusiastically supports women in business. We’re working hard to recruit more young women as students, to create more opportunities for our existing female students, and to help increase the numbers of women in traditionally underrepresented fields like information systems and supply chain management.
Collegiate Women in Business (CWIB)
CWIB is a student organization designed to inspire, empower, and develop women pursuing a career in business. Our goal is to build a sense of achievement and confidence that will carry with members into the future. The group is open to all female majors and minors in the College of Business.
Young Women in Business (YWIB)
What’s it like to be a business major? What’s it like to work in a particular industry? The College of Business at Iowa State University wants to help you find out.
