U.S. News Ranks Tippie MBA Program

U.S. News and World Report has ranked the Henry B. Tippie School of Management 50th among the top business schools in the nation and 23rd among all public institutions.

The rankings are determined by a combination of factors that include measures of program reputation, placement success of 2006 graduates, and student selectivity. U.S. News surveyed 406 accredited MBA programs in the U.S. from among the more than 600 programs that are offered nationally.

"With over 400 accredited full-time MBA programs in the US, it is an honor to be considered among the top fifty. We have worked hard to recruit, educate and place some of best young professionals in the world and this ranking reflects the hard work of the staff and faculty, as well as the high quality of the students" said Gary Gaeth, associate dean of MBA programs in the Tippie School of Management.

"Our approach has been to find the optimal mix of business theory and experiential learning. We have always been strong academically, but we are now seeing the positive effects of recently adding two weeks of leadership training, several applied projects in finance and marketing, and international business exploration in China" said Assistant Dean Colleen Downie.

The Tippie School of Management offers three MBA programs designed to enhance professional education: a Full-Time MBA; the MBA Program for Professionals and Managers (MBA-PM) in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and the Quad Cities; and the Executive MBA in Iowa City. The Tippie School also offers a Dual Master's Degree Program for engineers, in conjunction with Iowa State University, and an International Executive MBA program in Hong Kong.

The Tippie College of Business, accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), provides instruction in a personalized setting with easy access to qualified faculty and staff, and its programs utilize the latest technology to ensure that students receive a comprehensive management education that will help them succeed in today's competitive world.
