More of What Readies You for Success

What makes our curriculum so valuable? Let us show you...

  • More work in the field—analyzing real business problems and implementing strategy—than in other MBA programs.
  • Finish your foundation courses in the first semester and start taking classes in your area of interest (as well as executing consulting projects) well before your internship.
  • International exposure is not an option; it's a core component of the academic experience for everyone.
  • The soft skills critical to leadership are at the heart of our redesigned curriculum and career academies. Individualized attention, coaching, executive exposure, and opportunities to lead prepare you for a future in the leadership ranks.
  • Full-time MBA students are able to pursue a minor in a Career Academy outside their primary Career Academy. Minors are also an option for joint degree candidates (MHA, JD, PharmD, and MD) who are unaffiliated with a  Career Academy.

The Tippie value proposition isn't just about value. It's about values. We've built our program on a culture of integrity and social responsibility, a culture we charge our students with upholding. It's a belief that ethics aren't ancillary to business. They're the foundation of leadership and long-term success.
