The University of Iowa

Entrepreneurial Management Institute (EMI)

The University of Iowa’s Henry B. Tippie College of Business and John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (Iowa JPEC) have partnered to offer the Entrepreneurial Management Institute (EMI), a business consulting service, to Iowa employers. The purpose of this program is three-fold: 1) solve problems for Iowa businesses, 2) educate professionals for Iowa’s future, and 3) provide recruitment opportunities for Iowa employers and students. Consulting services are provided by teams of 3-5 University of Iowa students who work under the guidance of a faculty advisor with extensive business experience. Student teams are selected based on their areas of study and personal interests. The teams meet with the client to develop the project and its objectives and then have approximately 10 weeks in which to complete it. The curriculum is designed for maximum performance for the client, and throughout the semester, teams provide clients with weekly progress reports and appraisals and then complete a full report of the objectives, findings, and recommendations. Professionalism and complete confidentiality is guaranteed.
