Welcome to the Des Moines Campus

Earning a career-focused degree at Purdue Global–Des Moines campus is the first step toward a successful and rewarding future.*

History and Community

What began in Mason City, Iowa, a century ago has expanded into a multicampus educational community. Since 1900, the main campus of Hamilton College has operated as a business career college, and a third branch was added in Des Moines in 1988. In 2007, all seven Hamilton College campuses became part of Kaplan University. That long and proud legacy continues to this day at Purdue University Global.

Each campus maintains close relationships with its surrounding community, resulting in Purdue Global graduates employed throughout the Midwest. Today, the Des Moines campus offers a variety of associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees with flexible options to fit students’ personal and professional lives.
