WSJ, Financial Times recognize Tippie for innovative MBA admissions

Two leading business publications mentioned Tippie in the last week — both as part of articles on innovations in MBA admissions.

Our “Tippie Application Tweet” contest, launched in late June, awarded a full-tuition financial award to the individual who best responded to an essay question in 140 characters or less. The named winner, John Yates of Texas, won over the judging panel with a haiku-style Tweet.

Both articles mention Tippie and highlight other top MBA programs who are branching out to find new ways of assessing MBA candidates. Take a look at both articles, and see what’s coming down the pipeline for candidates in B-school admissions!
