Find your community
Here at Tippie, we want you to feel at home, thrive academically, and get the most out of your academic experience. And one of the best ways to do that is to find a campus environment that reflects both who you are and who you hope to become.
The BizEdge Mentorship programs provides that opportunity. Mentors and mentees connect with peers who have had similar experiences and who can offer guidance and support. In our program, you'll become part of a robust community that has access to all parts of the Tippie experience.
