College of Business and Public Administration

The College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA) strives to be a force for good and to train students to be leaders in the global economy. From undergraduate to graduate-level degrees, CBPA offers a rigorous curriculum to help students succeed in an increasingly technological, data-driven, and globalized world. CBPA provides hands-on experiential learning and helps build networks that will last a lifetime. In fact, 97.7 percent of CBPA students graduate having had one or more internship, and 99.6 percent of CBPA undergrads launch their careers or begin grad school within 6 months of graduation.

Drake is in the heart of Iowa’s capital city, giving students access to Fortune 500 companies, leading insurance agencies, and a growing entrepreneurial scene. Students have the opportunity to create connections with business executives, public officials, and nonprofit directors throughout Des Moines. CBPA hopes to nurture a high-performance academic culture while distinguishing themselves in the community through service and local leadership. By making a contribution to CBPA, you are paving the way for current and future students to become effective communicators, inclusive leaders, and global citizens.
