Analytics put into business context

When you have one of the best analytics programs in the country, it’s easy to make new friends.

Corporations, charities, local businesses—virtually everyone who has data needs access to expertise. And we’re here to provide just that. Tippie Analytics Cooperative is the Tippie College of Business’ industry-facing arm for all things analytics. We build partnerships throughout the region that result in hands-on projects for our students and data-based business decisions for our clients.

Real experience for students

We teach advanced computational and quant skills at all levels—from undergraduate to master’s and doctoral students. We believe solving real business problems multiplies the impact of what students learn in class.

Real impact for businesses

Want to optimize response rates to a marketing campaign? We can help you with that. Want to influence health care decisions through lifestyle choices or predict who’s likely to contribute to your charity? We can do that. Correction. We’ve done that.

World-class faculty

Some of the most sought-after data scientists, mathematicians, and optimization gurus in the country are here at Tippie. Our passionate faculty corps gives our students the mentoring they need to tackle what comes their way.

There was a day when you needed a computer science grad to comb through your data and a finance grad to put together an NPV and demonstrate business potential. Our students are equipped to do both. Join the impressive list of companies who hire our students as interns or full-time employees.

Faculty Story
Jeff Ohlmann

“The interest in sports analytics started with the Moneyball phenomenon, and it's really grown as the amount of data has proliferated. There's always a harder problem to be solved.”
