Who we are

It's hard to describe the Tippie College of Business in just a few words.

We are over 3,000 students, in programs spanning BBA to PhD. We are six academic departments—accounting, economics, finance, marketing, management and organizations, and management sciences. We are eight centers and institutes, and two student-managed endowment funds. We are 48,000 alumni and growing.

Our leadership is forward-thinking and pioneering, and our advisory boards serve as eyes and ears to industry. Tippie is regularly listed in top business school rankings. We install the best technology to support our research and teaching mission, both in our on-campus facilities and at our remote locations.

We hold the gold standard of accreditations, the Association to Advance College Schools of Business (AACSB), and have maintained the accreditation for over 90 years (since 1923). Explore Tippie's people, initiatives, programs, and more. There's a lot to learn, and a lot to love.
