The Group Study Spaces have moved to the Library - In order to better assist students with access to group study spaces and to better meet our behavioral research needs we have moved the group study space functionality from C202 to the 3rd floor of the PBB Library (the library will now have 14 spaces dedicated to group work) and repurposed the C202 area into dedicated spaces for behavioral research.

 

Seniors – BusinessWeek Survey (Rankings) – Online Now

Business Week Magazine began surveying seniors at the top business schools in the country for their 2012 rankings on November 7. Tippie seniors should have received an email from bw2013@cambriaconsulting.com with a subject line similar to “Businessweek's 2013 Undergraduate Business Project” that will contain a link to the 2013 rankings survey. The email will be sent only to UI accounts. Because this is a mass email, it may end up in your junk email folder. Please complete the survey; if we do not have a sufficient student response rate, we may be omitted from the rankings. If you are a senior and you do not receive the survey email, contact curt-graff@uiowa.edu in the UPO.
