The Young Alumni Board (YAB) is a diverse group of young professionals whose mission is to support the Tippie College of Business and its undergraduate business program. The YAB creates strong connections between the college and its alumni, and supports current students during their college years as they transition into alumni. Primary activities of the board include bi-annual meetings (hosted in the fall on campus and spring in an alternative location); panel discussions focused on different career paths; feedback on curriculum changes; involvement in the annual “One Day for Iowa” online fundraising campaign; and managing two mentor programs for current students.

Applications for the YAB are now now closed and will reopen in the spring of 2020. Applicants have to be within five years of graduation and must hold a BBA degree from the Tippie College of Business. Please review our bylaws in full prior to applying to ensure you’re able to fulfill the attendance and financial commitment requirements of the board.
