Diversity @ Tippie
Diversity is a critical component of success, not just an optional one. With that in mind, we have created a collaborative learning environment: From your first day of IMPACT Week, you work as part of a diverse team assembled in advance. Because of our strong commitment to diversity, we take great care to put together groups of individuals with a range of personal histories, skills, and work experience. You work closely with classmates from different backgrounds and achieve results together.
Organizations Supporting Women & Diversity
We recognize that minorities and women face unique challenges within organizations, and student groups exist to address these challenges. On campus, the Iowa chapter of MBA Women International provides assistance, training, and activities for women in their professional development and career searches. In addition, Tippie supports outreach events, including participation in national conferences of professional organizations like the National Black MBA Association, the National Society of Hispanic MBAs, and MBA Women International.
Although our location is solidly in the middle of the United States, Tippie attracts top students from all over the world (see our class profile for percentages of domestic and international students).
As a result, you meet classmates from cultures very different from your own. To help our students make these connections, we sponsor a series of events designed to learn more about the different cultures that are represented at Tippie. For instance, you can participate in a feast for the Chinese Lunar New Year, and celebrate Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights -- just two of the celebrations and educational opportunities that Tippie hosts annually.
Scholarships and Assistantships
Scholarships are available for female and underrepresented minority candidates. For more information, please see Financial Aid or contact Abby Parker, Associate Director of MBA Admissions & Financial Aid.
