College Rankings

With all the media rankings of business programs that are available to prospective students, it's hard to make sense of them all. Some value the cost and return on investment, some value the opinions of our peers. As you wade through the sea of rankings, it's important to note that the Tippie College of Business consistently appears in these rankings.

What this means is that by investing your time in a Tippie education you are guaranteed to experience a quality program that places its values in the right things: in an education that gives you the necessary skills and solid business practices that you will need to succeed in today's business world.

And in the end, while others promise this and that, don't you want a program with integrity that spends its resources on improving and perfecting our offerings rather than spinning our wheels to please the latest ranking? It's about doing the right thing, and at the Tippie College we do just that—That's The Power of I.
