Welcome to Your First Year at Tippie

Whether you have recently made your decision, or you've always known you would study business at the University of Iowa, we're glad you've chosen us.

Your first year at the Tippie College of Business is an ideal time to:

"Being a part of Tippie was one of the best opportunities I have been given since starting my college career. The direct admit seminar helped me gauge where my business skills were currently at and how to improve them, as well as showed me new skills to learn and succeed with." - Serina Lane, Class of 2017

"I don't know where I would be without the Direct Admit Seminar, they inspired me to chase my dreams. With the lessons I learned I was able to achieve my dream internship at The Walt Disney Company as a freshmen." - Michael O'Connell, Class of 2017
