The Tippie College of Business, also known as Tippie, is the business school located at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa. Established as the College of Commerce in 1921, Tippie is one of the oldest and highest-ranked business schools in the United States. The college is named after 1949 graduate Henry B. Tippie, marking the first academic division at the University of Iowa to be named after an alumnus. The college is located in the Pappajohn Business Building, which is named after 1952 graduate Des Moines venture capitalist John Pappajohn. Since 1923, the college has held the gold standard of accreditation, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Today, with over 50,000 alumni, and 3,000 students in programs spanning from BBAs to PhDs; the college houses six academic departments, 12 centers and institutes, and two student-managed endowment funds.

History[edit]

Isaac Althaus Loos shaped the early beginnings of the college by establishing the School of Political and Social Science, which included degrees in commerce, economics and finance. In 1908, "Commerce" was added to the school name, which then featured nearly 40 courses. In 1921, the College of Commerce was born, enrolling approximately 100 students with 23 faculty members. Two years later, the college joined the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

In the 1950s, the college was reorganized into six departments and renamed the College of Business Administration. In 1994, the college moved to its present location, the Pappajohn Business Building, at the corner of Clinton and Market Street.

In 2008, Tippie became the new home for the Consortium Institute for Management and Business Analysis (CIMBA). In a university news article, the dean said, "We are delighted that we have the opportunity to broaden the global footprint of the Tippie College of Business and the University of Iowa".[2]

In 2017, after falling 19 spots in one year in U.S. World News & Report's full-time MBA program ranking, Tippie began phasing out its full-time MBA program, with the final class graduated in 2019.[3] Part-time MBA programs are still offered at the Iowa City campus, as well as in Des Moines, Davenport, Cedar Rapids, Hong Kong, and Italy.

In October 2019, Dean Sarah Fisher Gardial was named dean of Belmont University Massey College of Business, effective March 1, 2020.[4] In November 2019 Amy Kristof-Brown was named interim dean of Tippie.[5] In November 2020 Amy Kristof-Brown was named dean of Tippie. [1]
