HistoryEdit

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, the word "commerce" was added to the school name, and the school featured nearly 40 courses. In 1921, the College of Commerce was born and enrolled 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 into its present location, the Pappajohn Business Building, at the corner of Clinton and Market Street. Sarah Fisher Gardial serves as the college’s current dean.

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, the final class graduating 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.
