With CIMBA Italy, you have the opportunity to earn an international MBA degree from the top-ranked, AACSB-accredited University of Iowa Tippie College of Business, and study on two continents along the way.

Our MBA Programs begin on our Paderno del Grappa campus where you'll be immersed in coursework and seminars to develop core MBA competencies, but also your leadership skills. In June, our graduating students travel to the University of Iowa for the final month to complete a real-world business simulation course and receive their degree at a formal University of Iowa graduation ceremony.

Weekend classes are taken with Part-Time students who live and work in Italy and Europe, creating a diverse and dynamic learning environment. 

The MBA Program not only prepares you with technical business skills, but also includes leadership development seminars, team-building activities, and one-on-one coaching sessions. You will also complete a consulting project that allows you to apply what you are learning in your courses and the leadership development program to a real multinational business.


The curriculum is focused on real-world uses of business principles. Team and leadership - based learning and problem-solving are emphasized; small class sizes allow more interaction and participation. Spend your last month in Iowa, while preparing for graduation and completed an integrative strategy course at the University of Iowa.


All classes are taught in English. You’ll need to show evidence of your ability to communicate well in English to be admitted. You’ll also complete an interview as part of the admissions process.


The program is designed to be completed in 11 months (Full-Time) or two years (Part-Time) while maintaining your full-time employment.


For full-time students, classes are in session throughout the week and on weekends. You will also participate in the leadership development program through additional seminars, coaching, and trainings. For part-time students, classes are held on the weekends. Most courses for our MBA programs meet for four full days.
