Meet Tippie's Young Alumni Board
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 fall on campus and spring off campus); panel discussions about different career paths; feedback on curriculum changes; involvement in the annual “One Day for Iowa” online fundraising campaign; and managing mentor programs for current students.
Applicants have to be within five years of graduation and must hold a BBA from the Tippie College of Business. Please review the bylaws in full prior to applying to ensure you’re able to fulfill the attendance and financial commitment requirements of the board.
The Young Alumni Board has created a LinkedIn resource guide for students looking to learn more about LinkedIn, maximize its potential, and ultimately use it to achieve career success. The guide walks business students through how to create an effective profile, build and engage a professional network, and find and secure internships and jobs.
