Programs geared toward service members

Associate to Master's Programs

You need an education that you can use in the workforce, not just a degree to hang on your wall. IWU's Associate to Master's programs are designed to match your commitment to achieve by giving you the most essential elements of a bachelor’s degree, ultimately skipping it, and propelling you into an MBA. Not only does this shorten your pursuit of a graduate degree by a full year, but it saves you approximately $10,000 in tuition and fees. Designed to fit the schedule of a full-time working adult, this program teaches you practical skills and valuable knowledge for a wide variety of business roles through real life scenarios and assignments.
