Doermer School of Business MBA Programs

“I chose IPFW because I was able to be near family. I completed my undergraduate and Master degree in Biology as a single parent. Having a strong support group was vital to my success. I knew, going to IPFW, I would receive diplomas from internationally known universities. I like knowing that where ever I go in the future my MBA degree will be recognized as quality education.”

Continuing Lecturer, Biology Department

Program Policies

The following academic regulations supplement those that apply to all Indiana University graduate students.

Course Load

Most Professional MBA students are employed full time and will take a course load of 9 credits (three courses) per quarter for three consecutive quarters and 6 credits (two courses) for the final 10 weeks of the program.  

Academic Standards

A candidate for the Professional MBA must maintain a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0 or better. The graduate GPA is calculated based solely on completed graduate-level courses. Students whose graduate GPA falls below 3.0 will be placed on academic probation.  The GPA deficiency must be removed in the next nine (9) credit hours in the Professional MBA program.  Failure to remove the GPA deficiency within the next nine (9) credit hours in the program may result in immediate dismissal from the Professional MBA program.  Dismissed students have the option of reapplying for the next cohort cycle.  Students earning grades of D or F must reapply for admission in the next cohort cycle. If the student is readmitted to the Professional MBA Program, he/she will retain credits and GPA earned from the previous admission to the program. Grades of D or F will be included in the calculation of the student's graduate GPA.

Time Allowed for Completion of Degree

The schedule of classes has been designed to allow full-time working professionals to complete the Professional MBA program in approximately 11 months.

Students who fail to attend graduate business classes and maintain good academic standing, at any time, during the Professional MBA program must reapply for admission in the next cohort cycle.
