Academic Structure

College of Business Administration

www.uni.edu/business

The College of Business Administration delivers an engaging education in a vibrant, supportive environment to students from Iowa and around the world. (For more, see www.uni.edu/business)

Our educational intent is to develop graduates who are ready to build rewarding careers and lead fulfilling lives. Our students graduate with a distinct advantage. They offer the unique blend of qualities every employer seeks:

  • Cutting-edge business knowledge to confront the complexities of the global economy effectively and ethically,
  • exceptional professional skills to contribute immediately and confidently,
  • and strong work values to meet the highest organizational expectations.

Students learn from faculty with advanced degrees and practical experience and who are fully committed to great teaching. Our scholarship support for study abroad opportunities allows students to further develop their global perspectives while continuing to progress toward their degree. Our Professional Readiness Program prepares students to hit the ground running in the workplace after graduation. It teaches them to navigate organizational dynamics, write clearly and concisely, speak with confidence, and develop a career vision and strategy – skills that might not be developed through a traditional business education. And many UNIBusiness courses and programs reinforce the strong work values students bring from home.

The College of Business Administration houses five departments:

  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Management
  • Marketing

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree is offered by all five departments. Teaching licensure covers accounting, business communication, business law, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, general business, information technology, management and marketing. All teaching programs are offered through the Management Department. In addition to its undergraduate programs, the college offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree and the Master of Accounting (MAcc) degree. Finally, the College of Business Administration serves other disciplines in the university through numerous professional courses. All programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB - International).

While providing a first-class professional education is our major concern, we maintain a strong commitment to student preparation in the arts and sciences. Students are counseled to seek a broad educational experience, particularly at the undergraduate level, and to utilize the full resources of the university in their preparation for happy and productive lives.

The College of Business Administration is the academic unit responsible for providing degree programs in business and management. Degree programs offered by other colleges may not include more than 25% of the degree requirements in College of Business Administration course work, excluding Economics. In addition, non-business majors may not enroll in more than 30 hours from the College of Business Administration [ECON 1041 (920:053) and ECON 1051 (920:054) excluded from the total] and may not complete more than one College of Business Administration minor (Economics excluded).

To graduate with a major from the College of Business Administration, a student must earn at least 50 percent of the business credit hours required for the major from UNI. Students must also complete at least 50 percent of the course work required for the degree outside the College of Business Administration.

Teaching

The Department is responsible for administering the student teaching component and other field experiences of UNI's undergraduate teacher education program. A statewide network of cooperating school centers offers a variety of student teaching and field experience sites in urban, suburban, and rural school systems. Out-of-state and international student teaching placements may be requested through the out-of-state/international center.

Since its establishment in 1876 as the Iowa State Normal School, the University of Northern Iowa has maintained its affirmed commitment to the support of excellence in teacher education. This commitment was recognized by the Iowa General Assembly in 1967 when the function of the university was redefined to include as its primary responsibility the preparation of " . . . teachers and other educational personnel for schools, colleges, and universities . . ." It is also acknowledged by the university in organizing and defining teacher education as an all-university function.

The College of Education, however, has a particular responsibility for teacher education. The most widespread influence on teacher education is that all students seeking licensure take professional preparation in the College of Education. For undergraduate students this professional preparation consists of a required professional education core common to all teaching majors and a culminating student teaching experience in diverse settings.

The college is involved in continuing education, working closely with school and non-school personnel throughout the state on curriculum projects, surveys, and other activities, as well as sponsoring conferences and offering classes, institutes, and workshops both on and off campus. These activities illustrate the college's commitment to service, but the college also recognizes the critical importance of such involvement for ensuring the vitality and relevance of its graduate and undergraduate programs.

Department faculty within the College of Education are engaged in writing and research activities along with their classroom instruction.

Individual Studies Courses

Self-Forming Seminar (INDIVSTU 4192)

This course is a type of group independent study which allows students with a common interest to organize a time for study together with each member of the team often working on part of a larger problem or project. A faculty consultant must agree to evaluate the completed project at the end of the term.

Interdisciplinary Readings (INDIVSTU 4196)

This course allows the student to develop a program of readings on a topic not dealt with in the university’s regular course offerings. The reading list and the number of credit hours must be approved by a faculty member specifically chosen to supervise and aid the student in her/his work.

Undergraduate Thesis (INDIVSTU 4197)

The writing of a thesis is required of all Individual Studies majors.

Other Educational Opportunities

Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Program

Army ROTC offers scholarship opportunities during college, but the real benefits begin when you graduate and are commissioned as a Second Lieutenant. ROTC opens up opportunities for positions of responsibility while teaching you valuable leadership and management skills impressive to the top employers in business and industry. ROTC also helps you grow individually, improve self-confidence, discover your capabilities, and perform to your full potential. For further information see www.uni.edu/rotc.

Community College Partnerships

Several statewide partnerships exist between the Regent institutions and Iowa community colleges.  These articulation agreements can be found in the publication, "The Public Connection" found on the website, transferiniowa.org.  The reverse transfer agreement allows students to complete their A.A. degree after transferring by using UNI courses to complete the A.A. degree. The Admissions Partnership Program provides students enrolled at the community college an adviser from UNI to help plan a course of study at the community college. In addition, other partnerships, also known as articulation agreements, have been developed between UNI and all Iowa community colleges for particular UNI baccalaureate degree programs. These agreements show specific courses that need to be taken at each school to complete a program. If available, an articulation agreement typically results in the quickest route to graduation for a transfer student.

Additionally, UNI has developed a 2+2 program. Students in this program earn an A.A. degree from a community college or have completed a similar set of courses at another institution and the UNI portion of a 2+2 program is offered at the community college for students who are place bound or career changing. These include B.A. degrees in elementary education teaching and early childhood education endorsement. Called a 2+2 program, the time to complete a degree may take more than four years depending on individual circumstances.

Iowa Lakeside Laboratory

Iowa Lakeside Laboratory is a field station run cooperatively by the University of Northern Iowa, the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and Drake University through the Board of Regents, State of Iowa.

The laboratory was established in 1909 for the conservation and study of the rich flora and fauna of northwest Iowa, especially those of the Iowa Great Lakes region with its numerous lakes, wetlands, and prairies. Its campus is located on approximately 140 acres of restored prairie, wetland, and gallery forest along the west shore of West Okoboji Lake. Lakeside’s mission is to provide undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to get hands-on experience working with a variety of natural and human environments through its field-oriented summer courses and to provide research facilities and support for graduate students and faculty working on research projects in northwestern Iowa.

Lakeside offers students a unique educational experience: small, full-immersion, field-oriented courses. Most courses meet all day (8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Monday through Friday. Course enrollments are usually limited to 11 students. Weather permitting, students normally spend at least part of each day doing fieldwork. Students from any college or university can take classes at Lakeside. If you are a student at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, the University of Northern Iowa, or Drake University, your credits and grades are recorded at your home school. If you attend another college or university, your credits and grades are recorded at the University of Iowa.

Before registering, please check with your academic adviser to determine if specific courses can be used to satisfy major, minor, college or university requirements at your institution.

Lakeside students may reside on or off campus. Please click here for housing options. We strongly encourage independent study by undergraduates and thesis and dissertation research by graduate students.

Research projects by undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty can be done either on the campus or at many nearby natural areas. Undergraduate and graduate students are strongly encouraged to do independent projects at Lakeside, and graduate students are welcome to use it as a base for their thesis and dissertation research. Laboratory space and other facilities are available for long-term or short-term research projects.

Teaching and research facilities include eight laboratory buildings, a library, and a lecture hall. Living accommodations include cottages, and motel-style units. All students are encouraged to stay at Lakeside while they are taking courses to take full advantage of its educational, professional, and social life.
