UNIMBA Graduation 2015

The University of Northern Iowa conferred degrees on MBA candidates during the most recent graduation ceremony held in Hong Kong in June. UNI President William N. Ruud made his first visit to the UNIMBA Hong Kong site and presided at the ceremony.

Graduates included MBA students in the UNIMBA Hong Kong and UNIMBA Guangzhou programs, which are complete MBA programs delivered onsite by UNI faculty in Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China. A commencement celebration is held every two years to celebrate the completion of a new cohort of UNIMBA students. 

"The MBA programs in Hong Kong and Guangzhou allow us to add to our international profile by sending our faculty overseas and engaging them with international practitioners," said UNIBusiness Associate Dean and MBA Director, Leslie Wilson.

Since starting the program in 2001, more than 40 UNI faculty have traveled to Hong Kong to teach in the program. Students are working professionals, with many holding high-level management positions. The UNIMBA program strengthens students business knowledge while allowing them to apply that knowledge in their real life business situations. Almost 300 students have graduated from this internationally accredited program in China. In addition to its AACSB accreditation, UNIMBA has been recognized as a Best Business School by Princeton Review for 9 consecutive years and by U.S. News and World Reports as a top 100 part-time MBA program.
