The Hawkinson Institute of Business Finance


About the Hawkinson Institute

The mission of the Hawkinson Institute is to facilitate career opportunities in the investment banking, financial services, and consulting industries for our students. The institute is a major link between the faculty, alumni, and students of the Henry B. Tippie College of Business and the financial and consulting community. We uphold our mission through:

  • Developing top undergraduate students in preparation for future careers in the financial services and consulting fields through a rigorous curriculum, which may consist of financial courses, seminars, internships, and research.
  • Placing top undergraduates in the financial services and consulting industries through the Hawkinson Scholars Program.
  • Working with top recruiters, who do not typically recruit at Iowa, to give them access to students within the Hawkinson Scholars Program.
  • Supporting finance research through fellowships to faculty within the Tippie Department of Finance.
