A message from our Associate Dean for Research

Welcome to research at the Tippie College of Business.

From its inception to today, Tippie places a high premium on the thought leadership provided by a dynamic, productive, and engaged faculty. Researchers in our six departments have a proven track record of creating new knowledge that moves their field forward, while also engaging constructively with businesses and other external partners to advance the state of business practice. 

Here, you’ll encounter demonstrated research success such as: 

  • world-class records of academic impact in areas like accounting and management; 
  • timely results from young faculty in areas like risk management (finance) and human decision making (marketing); 
  • contributions to large-scale interdisciplinary research in healthcare, climate change, and emergency management in business analytics and economics; 
  • the world’s only real-money academic research market, the Iowa Electronic Markets
  • impactful engagement with corporations, non-profits, regulatory agencies, etc. around the globe. 

Tippie’s research mission drives the state of knowledge from Iowa to the world. Whether you’re a prospective student or faculty member, academic peer, or potential new partner, feel free to reach out to us if you have questions, or if you want to get involved.
