Who We Are

The Business Student Ambassador Organization (BSAO) represents the Tippie College of Business and the University of Iowa at a variety of college functions. Ambassadors interact with Pappajohn Business Building visitors, acting as hosts at college functions, providing information and assistance to visiting groups, and assisting in student recruitment activities.

Ambassadors gain awareness of college resources, develop leadership and mentoring skills, and increase their involvement within the college of business. Ambassadors also utilize their skills in public speaking, event planning, and networking as they interact with guests and constituents.

What We Do

Our duties include hosting college functions, providing information and assistance to visiting groups, facilitating student recruitment activities, and most importantly, providing answers to questions from prospective business students and their families at college events. Ambassadors typically give 5-10 tours per semester and help with 7-12 events per semester. Ambassadors are paid $8/hour.
