Tippie's network will help you market your most important asset: yourself.
As a student of the Strategic Innovation Career Academy, you have access to over 40,000 business alumni and 235,000 University of Iowa alumni.
In the SI academy, we'll help you build business relationships that will grow your network into an even more valuable resource. The SI academy directors—in addition to Tippie faculty, deans, and staff—are well-connected with current-day business leaders nationally and internationally. We focus on exposing you to highly successful innovative individuals and companies, those on the cutting edge of innovation and process improvement.
Every MBA program touts the size of its alumni network, but size isn't the key. The key is involvement. We keep a database of hundreds of alumni who've expressly volunteered to help our MBAs make connections and find internships or full-time positions.
The Tippie Business Strategy Association (TBSA) works with the SI Career Academy to coordinate annual trips to cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, and New York to visit alumni and companies, host speakers who address hot topics, and facilitate team competitions.
