Double majors & joint degrees

Who says you have to stick to one major? You’d be surprised how many Tippie students major in more than one subject—and with joint degree programs in place, your “other” major doesn’t even have to be business. See double major & joint degree policies.


Tippie students have a plethora of subjects to choose from when it comes to picking a minor—from Spanish to sport and recreation management and everything in-between. Economics is the only business subject that has a minor available to Tippie students. UI students who are not majoring in business can minor in business administration.

Undergraduate to Graduate programs

Students in their third year of undergraduate study with a qualifying GPA of 3.25 are eligible for Iowa’s Undergraduate to Graduate (U2G) programs—sometimes referred to as 4+1. You’ll save time and money by applying 10-15 semester hours toward both your undergraduate and graduate degrees. U2G makes it possible to graduate with a Master’s in Finance or a Master's in Business Analytics in just two extra semesters (rather than the typical three).
