In fact, behind almost every great achievement you’ll find a team of experts, and a successful retirement is no exception. In Robert Hall’s experience, it takes an expert network of financial, legal, and tax professionals, all focused on the client’s needs, to create a solid retirement and estate plan.

IPFW Doermer School of Business


IPFW Doermer School of Business Evolves With Changing Local, Global Economies

Internationally Accredited School Readies Students for a Competitive Workplace


Like many Midwest cities, Fort Wayne has seen its economy transform from one dependent on heavy manufacturing to one fueled by innovation. Doermer School of Business has evolved along with northeastern Indiana, preparing students for the workplace of today, and of the future.

“The economy here has really changed over the years. Large manufacturing plants have dwindled. We’re seeing growth in the biomedical and health care industry, advanced manufacturing and defense,” says Michael Eikenberry, the new dean of the Doermer School of Business Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne and a former Indiana regional president of PNC Bank.

With distinctive programming and
faculty, the school is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).

“Our international accreditation points to several things. We have a 30-member faculty, and 27 of them are tenured, so they are experienced. Many of our faculty members are involved in research and the business community. Most of our competitors don’t have this accreditation, and I think this speaks to the quality of our programs,” Eikenberry says.

In-Demand Programs for Busy Professionals
Doermer School of Business has a variety of degree programs and certificates for busy professionals. The school offers two MBA programs to fit students’ needs. In both, students earn an MBA from Indiana University, one of the nation’s top-ranked MBA programs. At Doermer, students can choose from an 11-month Accelerated program, or the MBA+, generally completed in 18 to 24 months. Classes meet on either nights or weekends. Other core graduate programs include:

Nurse Executive

Nursing Master’s of Science

Organizational Leadership Graduate Certificate

Professional Communication

Public Management Certificate

Systems Engineering Certificate

The classroom isn’t the only place students learn. The business school offers a unique opportunity to work with a regional firm located in or looking to enter a foreign market, and to travel overseas as part of that learning.

“We cover the waterfront in preparing students for the business world, from economics and accounting to marketing and finance. As the state’s second largest city, Fort Wayne also provides great opportunities for internships and co-ops with the many companies based here,” Eikenberry says. “Our students get a very full education.”
