Business Week gives 'Surf's Up' to College of Business Administration website

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The World Wide Web site of the University of Iowa College of Business Administration earned a "Surf's Up" citation from Business Week magazine, which singled out the website as an example of excellent design that stood out among the more than 700 business schools on the web.

The UI site (http:///www.biz.uiowa.edu/) was one of three sites to be pointed out as examples of excellent design as part of a July 14 informal survey of business school websites conducted by the magazine for its own website. The others were Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Business (http://www.kellogg.nwu.edu/) and the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California (http://www.marshall.usc.edu/)

Of the UI site, reviewer Sara Leitch said, "The opening graphic mirrors the look of the new Pappajohn Building. The front page is a model of efficient and effective organization with a Quick Directory that makes menu pages obsolete."

The College of Business Administration's website has also been recognized by the Marr/Kirkwood Official Guide to Business School Webs and by Snap Online.
