This review is for Tippie
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2017
Student Life: Iowa City is a great place to spend two years of your life. There's a lot happening around campus if you can take time out of your job search.
Career Services: The school has a huge problem in retaining staff, even average staff, lot of it maybe due to the location. The Career Services staff uses their jobs as a a filler or as a stepping stone till they can find something better.
Location: Big negative when it comes to networking and getting recruiters on campus. The small class size means that recruiters don't have as much of an incentive to come on campus.
Financial Aid: This is great, probably the main reason why students apply here. Really good value if you are a domestic candidate. If you're international, the savings mean nothing if you don't have a job at the end of two years. If you want to return to your home country and have a business, you will have a great time with good learning opportunities and a fulfilling experience.
Academics: Most professors are pretty good but there are some that are very bad to be honest, bit of a mixed bag. You have the resources available for whatever it is that you are interested in but a very low level of support from staff and administration.
This is probably the most important factor for most applicants. Due to the limited network of alumni and an incompetent career services network, the school has been sliding in this regard. If you are an international student, the lack of support will really hurt you. Part of the blame goes to a tough external environment in the last one year.
