About the Tippie College of the University of Iowa
The Tippie College of Business` roots can be traced back to that time, too, just 11 years after the University of Iowa was established in 1847. The first "business" course offered was Moral Philosophy, which examined political economy, a subject that evolved to later include modern economics, finance, and commerce.

Today, 158 years later, the Tippie College of Business is one of the top-ranked, best-value business programs in the country. Tippie`s more than 48,000 living alumni are succeeding in today`s business environment around the globe.
